BPI in Brooks

Dear Energy Professional,

Build Green Maine LLC of Brooks, ME is pleased to announce that it has been welcomed as an Affiliate to the Building Performance Institute (BPI) of Malta, NY. Leveraging on its tenure as Maine State Housing Authority’s leading building science trainer, this agreement with BPI permits Build Green Maine to offer accredited Building Analyst I training throughout the state and region. Nearly all federal/state energy efficiency rebate programs require BPI certification for participation.

Our inaugural 8-day Building Analyst I class is scheduled for Belfast at the Hutchinson Center, starting Monday, August 16th and concluding Wednesday, August 25th. The class will consist of five classroom days along with two “in field” sessions. This period includes both the Online and Field portions of the BPI Examination. The Online Building Analyst I test will take place during the fifth classroom day. One-on-one Field examinations will begin on Tuesday afternoon the 24th, individual tests are scheduled on a first to register, first preference basis.

Build Green Maine’s proprietary curriculum and in-depth field experience are what set us apart. Our trainers have extensive field experience, ranging from old construction to new, large to small and from traditional to high-performance. We have lectured and taught building science widely, delivering energy evaluation training for federal and state programs, to architects, engineers, contractors and homeowners alike. BGM schedules test houses for “hands on” field training. Each student will use all pertinent diagnostic equipment ranging from the blower door and IR imagers to combustion analyzers. Advanced topics (e.g., Zone Pressure Diagnostics) will be taught in the field, under real world conditions.

The cost of the course is $1,395, which includes BPI’s Online and Field Examination Fees and meals. A $300 discount is available to those holding a Maine Housing Energy Auditor Certification. Reservations can be made by calling 207-323-1974 or by emailing info@buildgreenmaine.org. A $250 deposit will guarantee your place. We also offer a test-only option.

Take a step in the right direction and get your BPI BA I certification with Build Green Maine today!
