Everblue became a test center with the Building Performance Institute (BPI) over a decade ago. We’ve trained tens of thousands of weatherization professionals, HVAC contractors, home inspectors, and general contractors to become certified home energy auditors. As a BPI Test Center, we are authorized to not only provide high-quality training but to also administer and proctor the official BPI certification exams as part of our program.
When the Department of Energy (DOE) and National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) developed the Home Energy Professionals (HEP) program roughly 10 years ago, they contracted with the Interstate Renewable Energy Council (IREC) to develop an accreditation for their HEP certifications.
Everblue earned IREC Accreditation for its HEP Energy Auditor & Quality Control Inspector (QCI) trainings in 2014. To this day, Everblue is still 1 of only 22 weatherization training centers in the nation with this accreditation.
