Do you have to have previous HVAC experience in order to take this course. Is the course tailored to people who come from other fields or industries and have no previous work in the energy field? I have been unemployed for 6 months. My career has been business professional. Due to econmy and employment situation, a career change must be made.

Do you have to have previous

Submitted by Bana@Everblue

Hello,

Thank you for your question. Students are not required to have any specialty background to take BPI training or become an Energy Auditor. However, a HVAC and/or contracting background can be useful to when performing an energy audit.

Thank you,

Does build it green CGBP work for the prerequisite for the BPI Envelope shell pro?

Submitted by Bana@Everblue

Hello,

The only course that can prerequisite the BPI Envelope Shell is the BPI Building Analyst/Energy Auditor. It is very important to take the BPI Building Analyst/Energy Auditor to understand BPI Envelope Shell as it is a foundational course for BPI.

Thank you,
Bana

Accreditation

Submitted by Everblue

Hi,

In order to have your business accredited with BPI, you must have at least one employee with a BPI Building Analyst certification and then an advanced BPI credential above that.

Once the employee has both of these requirements, your company can then apply to be BPI accredited. You would want to contact BPI directly at www.bpi.org directly for more information on the business certification process.

Thanks,
Everblue
