Training & Certification Courses

Building Science Energy Services is committed to offering a full building science curriculum to entry level workers who do not have experience in the industry to experienced building contractors and energy auditors. Through our training division, Building Science Academy (BSA) - a Michigan Proprietary School - we offer over 300 hours of building science curriculum. Our programs are also recognized by Michigan Works. We also work with colleges and universities interested to develop building science curriculum.

The Building Performance Institute (BPI) offers nationally recognized certification, accreditation and quality assurance programs for the home performance industry. With the decline of new home sales, mandated utility company energy optimization programs and the federal government emphasis on creating jobs in energy efficiency and renewable energy the home performance or retrofit market is re-creating itself for expansion across the United States. The Building Performance Institute has been creating national standards for this industry since 1983. Individuals and contractors can obtain nationally recognized certification or accreditation to nationally recognized standards with the Building Performance Institute. Building Science Academy is an affiliate of BPI to provide the training resources necessary to obtain national certification. All BSA courses are also BPI recognized and count toward continuing education credits for certified professionals.

Courses for BPI certification offered by BSA include:

In addition to BPI certification courses, Building Science Academy has developed their own courses and curriculum to prepare individuals, companies, government organizations, weatherization programs and others on the education and required skills necessary to enter the Home Performance and Retrofit Market.

"Inspired Green is a Michigan and Ohio based performance contractor. One of the most important things for the growth of our business is to have the right training in building science. It gives our team confidence and it allows us to diagnose and solve problems for home owners the right way every time. We tried a couple of different training programs, then we connected with BSA. The difference was amazing! Our staff got into the material in ways we‘d never seen. The instructors are engaging and they make the information into something to be passionate about. We‘ve sent 17 people through training at BSA and we plan to keep sending them. The bottom line is that, if you‘re serious about performance contracting, you need the best training.

You simply can‘t find it to rival BSA‘s program anywhere else. Feel free to contact me via email with any specific questions about our experience."
