6 Months BPI Experience in 6 Days! Really?

Tue, 2011-05-03 14:12

At ACI, I saw a booth advertising BPI Training, “6 months experience in 6 days.” Really. That’s impressive! I don’t buy it, though. (I should have taken a picture).

Here at Everblue, we frequently get asked, “Can I really become an energy auditor in 6 days?” Technically, the answer is that you can get all the training to become a RESNET HERS Rater or BPI certified energy auditor in 5 or 6 days, but that will not make you an expert. From a practical standpoint, if you are new to the industry, the certifications can be a great starting point, but you’ll have to get out into the field and gain real world experience. The training and certification process is just one step in your journey, but in and of themselves, they are not sufficient.

Everblue’s six-day Energy Auditor courses will challenge you, motivate you, and prepare you to become an energy auditor, but there’s more to the process than just a six-day course. I don’t want to discourage anyone, as you have to start somewhere, and a training course is a great way to “get started.”

Of course, if you already have years of experience, you too can learn a lot and demonstrate your knowledge with a BPI Certification.
