BPI Building Analyst Professional Training & Exam

After you’ve passed the BPI Building Analyst Technician exam, upgrade your skills to become a Building Analyst Professional.

A Building Analyst Professional (BA-P) uses energy modeling software to model the energy upgrade potential of a home and to develop a scope of work. BA-P professionals use the data collected from diagnostic tests to determine how a homeowner can improve the energy efficiency of their home, lower their energy bills, and create a healthier/safe space.

The BPI BA-P Certification is nationally recognized and will underscore your expertise in home performance and energy auditing.

Benefits of Building Analyst Professional Certification

Gain the knowledge you need to be successful as a home performance professional or energy auditor.

Grow Your Business

Qualify for utility rebate programs that require a "certified home energy auditor" with BPI BA-P Certification. This will become increasingly more important as rebate funds from the Inflation Reduction Act trickle down to the states.

Highlight Your Expertise

Building on previous knowledge and skills, a Building Analyst Professional demonstrates additional abilities, such as energy modeling, project administration, in-depth analysis, and workscope development.

Better Help Your Clients

As a true professional, the BA-P credential digs deeper into understanding the home conditions and can provide a more comprehensive look using the whole house approach. You'll be able to interpret diagnostic test results and determine if further action or testing is required.
