Pilot Certification Open: Register Now

Registration for the four new Home Energy Professional certifications is still open.  These certifications are funded by the U.S. Department of Energy and offered through the Building Performance Institute, Inc. (BPI).  They focus on the most common job classifications in the home energy upgrade industry: energy auditor, retrofit installer, crew leader, and quality control inspector. 

BPI will pilot written and field practical exams for the new certifications beginning in June. The results of the pilot test cycle will be used to set passing scores for the national exams, scheduled to roll out this fall.  Candidates who take the pilot exam and meet the passing requirements will be amongst the first group of professionals to earn these certifications.

Registration information, exam prerequisites and FAQs for the pilot certification exams are available at: www.bpi.org/pilot. Scheduling for pilot exams begins this month, so interested individuals should submit their applications now!
