NREL / BPI Quality Control Inspector
Why take this course:
Companies that have a certified Quality Control Inspector on staff to verify that the home performance job is completed according to BPI standards will be able to differentiate themselves from their competition based on quality assurance.
In addition, government and utility energy efficiency programs may require third party inspection from a BPI Quality Control Inspector to ensure work was done correctly and to reduce the program's risk of liability.
As energy audits become more common and standardized, the need for quality control inspectors will continue to grow, this certification is the first step to getting ahead of the competition.
This course is ideal for energy auditors, home inspectors, and any other individuals interested in a career in inspecting the quality of residential energy audits.
