Update on BPI Healthy Home Evaluator

Thu, 2016-04-07 11:30

Two weeks ago, we posted about the new BPI Healthy Home Evaluator Certification as it was explained to us on the BPI Test Center conference call. At that point in time, the Building Performance Institute (BPI) had planned to launch the pilot for the Healthy Home Evaluator exam on April 4 to coincide with the 2016 ACI National Home Performance Conference & Trade Show. It turns out that this was an early April Fool’s Day joke – likely unintentional – because the pilot actually launched on Friday, April 1st.

Late Friday afternoon (4/1/16), it was decided that the HEP Quality Control Inspector (QCI) designation would also be accepted as a pre-requisite for the BPI HHE Certification exam. This means that candidates who are interested in taking the BPI HHE exam may do so if they hold one of these active certifications:

  • BPI Building Analyst
  • HEP Energy Auditor
  • HEP Quality Control Inspector

If a candidate does not have one of these certifications, the testing portal will not allow him or her to continue into the exam.

And finally, as a reminder, this is a pilot for the BPI Healthy Home Evaluator Certification. This means that those who take the BPI HHE exam will not receive their exam results until after the pilot period has concluded.
