WHO SHOULD BUY THIS VIDEO?

BPI Field Exam Candidates and those training to become Energy Auditors: This training is targeted for people wanting to become home energy auditors. It is perfect for those who have taken an online or in person building science course and need an in-depth review of the diagnostics tests covered in the BPI Building Analyst or Envelope field examinations. We strongly recommend that trainees watch this video prior to taking the BPI written examination as well, since it visually demonstrates the core concepts of the exam.

BPI Building Analysts: This training will show residential professionals what is included in an energy audit, where energy efficiency problems arise in existing homes, and building science and energy efficiency best practices. It’s good practice for energy auditors who are taking on their first client or those who want to brush up on skills. It’s also great for architects, builders or realtors to gain a new technical understanding of how to improve the efficiency of existing homes.

“We produced this BPI training video because we grew frustrated seeing people fail the Building Analyst field exam because they weren’t comfortable performing a home energy audit in front of a BPI field exam proctor. After watching this video, and practicing with the materials included, you will be confident and prepared to pass the BPI field exams.” Asa Foss and Glenn Dickey, BPI trainers
