Frequently Asked Questions
- What is the difference between BPI Air Leakage Control Installer certification (formerly Residential Building Envelope Whole House Air Leakage Control Installer or RBE-WHALCI Certification) and the BPI Retrofit Installer Certification The ALCI is an entry level certification developed to evaluate a candidate’s ability to demonstrate a fundamental level of skill in the selection and installation of appropriate materials used to reduce air leakage in a typical home.
The BPI Retrofit Installer certification is geared toward experienced technicians who have been in the field and can demonstrate a wider range of skills. This certification has a combination of prerequisites such as industry specific experience (e.g. previous installation of windows, heating systems, and air sealing and insulation measures), industry training and general building experience (e.g. framing, roofing, siding, etc) that potential candidates must meet before sitting for the exam.
- Are the new BPI certifications replacing any of the existing certifications The new certifications are not replacing BPI’s existing certifications. The new certifications are for experienced industry professionals. They are tailored to the specific job tasks of each role: energy auditor, retrofit installer, crew chief, and QC inspector, and have significant work experience prerequisites attached to them. As experienced BPI certified professionals’ certifications come up for renewal (every three years), they may want to go for one of the new certifications that correspond to the role they are playing within their company. BPI’s existing certifications will remain important building blocks for gaining this experience and for ensuring technicians have the broad building science knowledge they need to build their careers.
