About the Event
Building Performance Strategies BPI Building Science Principles (BSP) and Infiltration and Duct Leakage (IDL) combo course aligns with the professional standards of excellence set forth by the Building Performance Institute (BPI). This BPI training will provide individuals with the knowledge, skills, and preparation needed to excel in the home energy performance industry.
Earning the Building Science Principles (BSP) Certificate of Knowledge is your first step into the world of energy efficient home performance. You will learn some of the widely-used industry terminology related to building science. Building science demonstrates how various components of a home interact to affect the home’s overall performance. Understanding the relationships between the building envelope, heating, A/C, insulation, mechanical ventilation, lighting, appliances and other systems of the home will enable you to assist yourself and others. Learn how these systems affect the comfort, health and safety of occupants and durability of the home. Discover why improving the energy efficiency of the home should be the first step toward solar, geothermal, or other renewable energy improvements.
Earning the Infiltration and Duct Leakage (IDL) certification is a simple, comprehensive, and affordable way for contractors to gain the skills needed to offer duct leakage and blower door tests, in compliance with IECC codes for new home construction or existing home remodels.The IDL certification is an entry level certification showing you have the knowledge and ability to run blower door testing and duct blaster testing.
