Training & Certification

Experience Matters

Our trainers have been there before. They’ve crawled through damp basements and dusty attics, boiler rooms, and skyscraper roofs. They share this intimate knowledge of how buildings work in the courses they teach and consistently receive rave reviews from their students.

Our building science curriculum was one of the first in the US developed specifically to incorporate all aspects of becoming a whole house building performance contractor for existing housing stock, including diagnostic investigation, installation, remediation, as well as a full range of best practices. We deliver courses for beginners and advanced certifications. Our roster includes BPI, RESNET, AIA, EPA, IECC, software end-user classes, and advanced training that address the complexities of multifamily and commercial projects. To meet the diverse needs of this quickly growing industry, we offer courses delivered in classrooms, in the field, and through online webinars.
