SUNY Ulster's Kelder Test House Receives BPI Approval

Quality Control Inspector and Energy Auditor Certifications Now Available

          May 9, 2018 - Stone Ridge, NY – SUNY Ulster's Kelder Test House site has received approval from the Building Performance Institute, Inc. (BPI) as an approved test site for the BPI HEP Quality Control Inspector field exam and for the BPI HEP Energy Auditor field exam.   This approval is the 9th for the state of New York.

The Home Energy Professional (HEP) Quality Control Inspector certification is offered by BPI and is supported by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and its National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). By earning the Home Energy Professional Quality Control Inspector certification, professionals prove that they can verify the compliance of retrofit work performed based on work plans and standards, conduct audits and inspections using diagnostic equipment, and can develop reports that specify corrective actions to achieve whole house performance.

The Home Energy Professional Energy Auditor certification is offered by BPI and is supported by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL).  The HEP Energy Auditor certification demonstrates advanced competency through rigorous written and field exams and work experience prerequisites.  Once certified, professionals will be able to evaluate the energy efficiency, health, and safety of a home. HEP Energy Auditors gain in-depth knowledge of how to use diagnostic equipment and modeling software to identify areas for energy savings, produce an audit report, and develop a prioritized scope of work for customers.

Candidates must take both an online and field exam to become certified as a Quality Control Inspector and as an Energy Auditor.
