IMPORTANT NEWS FOR THOSE NEEDING TO CERTIFY OR RECERTIFY AS A BPI BUILDING ANALYST

As of 2/1/14 BPI has rolled out Advanced Building Analyst certification testing. All TSFEE training and testing will be to this new level.

If you currently hold a Building Analyst (BA) certification and need to recertify, you must do so at the Advanced Building Analyst level.

Advanced BA includes about 15-20% new information not previously presented in BA training. It is recommended that any recertifying candidate consider Advanced BA refresher training prior to testing. See our class calendar for upcoming training dates.

The School for Energy Efficiency helps companies and individuals capitalize on the growing interest in costs savings through improved energy efficiency. As governmental agencies promote a whole-building approach to efficiency, homeowners and business owners will increasingly look for a new breed of professional who offers a systematic, science-based approach.

We teach building science and certify students as building professionals under the auspices of the Building Performance Institute (BPI). Our instructors are also certified by RESNET and the U.S. Green Building Council, and we will soon offer certification training on behalf of those organizations.

By identifying energy-saving opportunities within a scientific context, today's professionals help customers recognize the value of energy efficiency and overcome their reluctance to invest in new equipment.. The School of Energy Efficiency is affiliated with Entech Advanced Energy Training school as a satellite training facility.

Certification Leads to Opportunity

The School for Energy Efficiency provides training in energy efficiency and accredits contractors under the auspices of the Building Performance Institute (BPI), which is the leading credentialing organization for energy efficiency professionals. BPI certification is a prerequisite for participation in more than 100 government-funded incentive programs across the country.

Our training courses are a cut above the rest. We meet the requirements for certificate training, and then we go farther. We draw on extensive field experience to help our students grasp the practical applications of energy efficiency in the energy and building comfort industries. There is more to building efficiency than science: Professionals need to leverage energy auditing services into business opportunities, and we show them the way.

In addition to the BPI Certification training we offer now, we'll soon offer training for LEED Certification and the RESNET HERS rating and a variety of other subject matters relevant to the industry needs of today.
