There are many questions you should ask yourself and many aspects of the business to consider. For example, will you be working alone as a contractor or join an existing energy audit team?
Whichever you choose, keep in mind that more titles doesn’t always mean “better.” However, often it does make sense to earn multiple certifications so that you can show customers you are well-rounded and have the ability to help them in several areas. One of the best pieces of advice we have is to add a specialized certification such as Multi-Family or Shell Professional to your already existing BPI Building Analyst designation. In addition to showing your advanced knowledge in the industry, advanced certifications gives the opportunity of applying your company for BPI Accreditation, which can often be a requirement to offer your customer’s the rebates and incentives given by state and utility programs.
