Everblue, a nationally recognized and accredited education company, will work with the Louisiana Housing Corporation to train and certify weatherization contractors across the state in home performance and energy efficiency concepts.
As Louisiana Weatherization Training Center 2020-2021 Partner, Everblue will develop curriculum, train, and provide technical assistance to participants seeking the following certifications:
- BPI Infiltration & Duct Leakage
- BPI Building Analyst
- BPI Envelope Professional
- HEP Energy Auditor
- HEP Quality Control Inspector
Everblue has been offering building science training since 2008 and maintains a close relationship with the Building Performance Institute (BPI), the non-profit organization that created the professional certification standards for home energy auditors and weatherization contractors.
As an approved BPI Test Center, Everblue’s authorized instructors provide BPI training classes and administer corresponding BPI certification exams, allowing for a one-stop-shop certification solution for candidates.
In addition to meeting BPI’s quality standards, Everblue’s training curriculum is also aligned with the National Renewable Energy Laboratory’s job task analyses and accredited by the Interstate Renewable Energy Council. The organization likewise has more than ten years of experience preparing participants for in-demand energy efficiency careers.
“Since inception, we have regularly trained students from weatherization agencies across the country as part of the DOE’s Weatherization Assistance Program,” said Chris Boggiano, co-founder of Everblue. “The vast majority of our BPI training students pass their written and field certification exams on their first attempt. Our instructors have both deep real-world experience and a passion for educating others that make our classes second to none.”
The LHC will host Everblue’s BPI training courses at its state-of-the-art Weatherization Training and BPI Test Center in Baton Rouge, LA, in Spring 2021.
