The green homes market is growing like crazy and energy efficiency is a big aspect of this growth. Specifically, I think the energy audit is critical to helping homeowners improve the performance and comfort of existing homes, and trained professionals will play an important role going forward.  That’s why the Everblue Training Institute is providing a great resource by training professionals to obtain BPI Certification.

Everblue offers several different kinds of BPI training, including BPI Building Analyst Certification training, in over 60 locations to further its motto of “building earth’s sustainable workforce.” A BPI Building Analyst, for example, goes “beyond a traditional energy audit to perform comprehensive, whole-home assessments, identify problems at the root cause, and prescribe and prioritize solutions based on building science,” according to the Building Performance Institute. Everblue’s Building Analyst program can be completed in less than a week and includes classroom instruction, study materials, field training, field testing, and the online exam.

Everblue provides all the equipment and runs trainees through the energy audit process from start to finish. There are no pre-requisites to becoming a BPI energy auditor, though BPI Certification can be a great way to expand business for someone like a home inspector, HVAC pro, general contractor, home builder, or HERS Rater.

So if you’re looking for a start with energy audit work, or want to learn more in this area, please visit www.everbluetraining.com to reserve a seat. *This is a sponsored post.
