Please note we are strictly following the Governor's guidelines.  NYSWDA will now be following the indoor-mask mandate for all attendees regardless of vaccinatination status.  All those who who are not vaccinated will be required to wear a mask and to complete a Student Screening Checklist prior to attending the class.

Course Description:
Building Analyst training provides the foundation of building science through the framework of an audit process to understanding the "how's" and "why's" of building issues: ice dams, mold and indoor air quality. It is the quintessential "house-as-a-system" in what goes on in building durability, comfort and energy usage.

This five day course provides an understanding of the BPI Building Analyst Standards through classroom studies and in-field activities. The in-field portion of the class will provide hands-on training with gas appliance testing, blower door use and set-up and proper and accurate combustion appliance zone testing in the state-of-the-art NYSWDA Pressure House and Heating Lab.

The class is followed by a review of the BPI standards and the 100-question (2 hour) Building Analyst test. After the trainees successfully complete the written portion of the test, we will schedule them for the Field test.
