Become a BPI Building Analyst

HSI Training Center's Building Performance Institute (BPI) Building Analyst course covers the basic principles of building science to assess energy efficiency in a home while also monitoring conditions that have a direct impact on human health and safety. BPI standards emphasize the 'house-as-a-system' approach to inspecting a home, meaning that all systems are interconnected — from the HVAC equipment, to the envelop, the foundation, walls, roof, doors, and windows. You will learn how to use diagnostic equipment such as the blower door and the combustion analyzer to ensure systems are  functioning together correctly to maximize home performance, comfort, energy efficiency, safety, and durability.
