BPI Building Analyst Certification

BPI Building Analyst Certification is proof that a home performance contractor is skilled at using building science knowledge to diagnose energy-related problems in the home.

This energy auditor certification relies on visual inspection, blower door testing, and combustion appliance safety testing to ensure a safe and energy-efficient dwelling for home occupants. BPI Building Analysts evaluate uncontrolled air leakage and identify heating and cooling problems that lead to high energy costs, health problems, and occupant discomfort.

"David Leatherwood and John Costello were great instructors. They were very informative and friendly. They made the information easier to understand and were the reason why I was able to successfully complete the class. I look forward to doing more training with EverBlue very soon!" - Levi Brown

"I attended the BPI Building Analyst class in Charlotte, NC two weeks ago and wanted to send this note thanking Vince and Ryan, the teacher and the proctor, for the fantastic job they did. I have been to many, many classes and found this training to be among the best I have ever received. Vince worked with the class to make sure everyone understood every aspect of the training so everyone would stand a good chance at passing the tests. The training can be difficult as it covers many different items including air conditioning, building, combustion, transfers of heat and numerous other details concerning the structure as a system. Vince explained all these in ways that were easy to understand and to visualize how they all work together. I am very pleased with the class and know that I made the right choice with Everblue to further my education in the industry. Thank you again. By the way, yes, I passed the tests." - Michael Browman
