Tamasin is performing the "tai chi" of blower door setup.  Seriously, there is a great article in the July/August issue of Home Energy Magazine written by Kathy Price-Robinson.  The article is about Pure Energy's Women's Energy Auditing Course held at The Pure Energy Center last October. 


And while reading the magazine, be sure to check out our ad on page 16!

Does ASHRAE 62.2 Scare You?


If so, we have the course for you!  We've partnered with Therma-View www.thermaviewenergy.com to offer a two-day training on ASHRAE 62.2 and mechanical ventilation.  This two day course qualifies for 17.5 BPI CEU's! 


Our course includes:

  • How to measure exhaust fan flow
  • How to improve fan flow
  • Choosing ducting and duct configurations
  • Controls, Fan Types
  • Moisture measurement
  • And much more!

BPI is adopting ASHRAE 62.2 on January 1, 2013.  This means those recertifying next year or later must learn ASHRAE 62.2 for their recertification exams.


Pure Energy offers many courses and presentations that include CEU's.  See our course list on our website, www.PureEnergyCoach.com.


If your group wants a private training session, contact us.  If you get 6-10 people together, we'd be happy to hold a training session at your site, with our without COACH.

Confused about BPI CEU's?  Worried about recertification?  Is training before recertification required?

We get many calls from BPI Certified individuals whose certification is about to expire.  They want to know if they must take more training; how to get CEU's; what benefits they get from CEU's; and how to renew their certification.

   You don't HAVE to have CEU's in order to be recertified.  However, if you have CEU's, you may save some time and money.  Here is how it works: 
Your BPI Certification is good for three years.  About 6 months prior to your certification expiration, you can begin the process of becoming recertified. 
If you have less than 10 CEU's, you must take the 100 question written (on-line) exam and the field exam and pass both.  If you have 10 to 29 CEU's, you only have to take the 50 question written exam and the field exam and pass both.  If you have 30 or more CEU's, all you have to do is take and pass the field exam.
So, the best you can do is save yourself from taking the written exam.

Regarding training:  There is no requirement for you to be re-trained in order to be recertified.  However, if you aren't ready for the exams, it would be a good idea to take a refresher course. 
Pure Energy offers Standards Review training, typically one day, where you can brush up on the BPI Standards and testing protocols.  If you need more than one day, Pure Energy offers two and five day training sessions as well.  We want you to be ready for your exams and will support you any way we can.
