|BPI Exam Opportunities - Are You Camera Shy?
Take your certification exams or re-certification exams before BPI requires video and audio recording and before the prices go up!
Starting February 2012, BPI is requiring that all certification exams be video and audio recorded. Because so many people are camera shy, we are offering testing opportunities before BPI's new rules go into effect.
Pure Energy is offering BPI Building Analyst, Envelope Professional, Multi-Family, and Heating Professional Certification Testing in the first week of January 2012.
Space is limited. Pre-registration and pre-payment is required, so act now!
|Pure Energy Coach Completes Co-training of 60 Contractors in CT|
A. Tamasin Sterner worked with Larry D. Armanda from Therma-View Infrared and Energy Consultants to complete training 60 ARRA and WAP contractors in CT on duct testing, including the use of a Duct Blaster, as well as advanced zone pressure diagnostics including series leakage tests. Not only did students learn how to detect air leaks but also how to "size" the hole, measure it in CFM's, and decide if the holes are worth sealing.
Of course, sealing the attics from the living spaces remains the highest priority for so many important reasons - and these talented contractors saw why this is so. And, they learned the impact of duct leakage on atmospheric draft combustion appliances. Not only does this knowlege and skill save energy and keep houses from falling down, it saves lives.
