BPI mandates recertification every three years.

There are three routes to recertification:

  1. Candidates who submit 30 or more CEUs shall be required to register for, and successfully pass a field exam for each designation.
  2. Submit between 10 and 29 CEUs, pass a 50 question written examination, and pass the field examination for each designation.
  3. Submit fewer than 0-9 CEUs, and pass the 100 question written examination and field examination for each designation. (Essentially, go back through the complete certification).

Field Exam Requirements:
Individuals renewing their certification for the first or second time (time certified 3 to 6 years)
BPI Will waive the field exam if you qualify in one of two ways:

  1. Practitioners must have proof of experience: Minimum of 3,000 hours relevant experience.

For example:

  • Building Analyst / Envelope Professional: energy audits, diagnostic measurement(s), work scopes, installation oversight, QA test in/test out.
  • Heating / AC and Heat Pump / Manufactured Housing Professional: work scopes, diagnostic measurement(s), installation oversight, QA test in/test out
  • Multifamily Building Analyst: energy audits, diagnostic measurement(s), work scopes, installation oversight, QA test in/test out

*Note: BPI accepts a signed letter on company letterhead from current and/or past employers documenting work experience. For the applicant’s convenience, a standard template letter is included with the Application for BPI Certification Renewal. Simply print the template out on company letterhead, fill out the requested information and have it signed by a supervisor.

  • For individuals that are self employed, BPI accepts a letter containing all of the following:
    An Employer Identification Number (EIN) or other documentation showing how long your company has been in business.
  • Number of jobs completed over the last year, including customer contact information and a brief description of each job (i.e., energy audit, air sealing and insulation). BPI will randomly contact customers to verify information given.

  1. Trainers: For individuals whose primary function involves training with content relevant to the house-as-a-system, you need 10 points over three years to bypass the field exam.
