Correction to the BPI Certifications Announcement.
In the original announcement, it was stated that BA-P will replace the BPI Envelope certification, it should have stated BA-T. The announcement below has been updated to reflect the correct certification.
BPI new certifications and Program requirements
Building Performance Institute (BPI) will be replacing the BPI Building Analyst (BA) and BPI Envelope Professional certifications with the BPI Building Analyst Technician (BA-T) and the BPI Building Analyst Professional (BA-P) in early 2023.
Due to these changes, starting January 1, 2023, NYSERDA’s Single Family Residential Programs will continue to accept the BPI BA and Envelope certifications until the certification’s expiration date. When an individual’s certifications expire, they will be required to hold one of the BPI certifications listed in the program manual to perform energy assessments and BA-T will replace BPI Envelope as the requirement for a contractor to do building shell work.
If you have any questions on certifications, please contact your account manager.
