BPI Building Analyst Certification Details
Now is the best time to earn your BPI Building Analyst Certification. The BPI Building Analyst training covers the newest version of the BPI Building Analyst standard, providing you with the most effective and realistic training experience on the market. Students have the opportunity to use real energy auditing equipment and tools at a real home under the supervision of a certified and experienced professional.
BPI Infiltration and Duct Leakage Certification Details
On August 4, 2014, the Building Performance Institute (BPI) announced a brand new certification to its approved BPI Test Centers about blower door and duct blaster concepts.
Sometimes called Duct and Envelope Tightness (DET), the BPI IDL Certification fills a void in new home construction. Code officials, builders, and their sub-contractors are working to comply with IECC 2009 and IECC 2012 codes that require blower door and duct leakage tests on new homes built. DET training is an affordable alternative to traditional credentials for IECC compliance testing services.
Students taking this course will explore the fundamentals of air movement in residential buildings and identify the drivers and sources of air leaks. We will also cover ventilation system requirements and how ventilation relates to overall air leakage in a home.
Program runs for five days (four days of classroom and field training and one day of field exams). Choose from course dates below.
