Please join us in congratulating Matt Thompson of Housing Stabilization on gaining Building Performance Institute (BPI) Quality Control Inspector certification! Matt Thompson is an Energy Auditor in Housing Stabilization’s Weatherization Program here at Sieda.

Building Performance Institute (BPI) is the nation’s premier certification and standard-setting organization for home performance professionals. BPI is accredited by the American National Standards Institute, Inc. (ANSI) as a developer of American National Standards and as a certifying body for personal credentials. BPI develops the technical standards for home energy audits and for energy efficiency, health, and safety improvements.

BPI certification is the culmination of years of working experience, plus many hours of training and grueling testing both in the classroom and in the field.  For individuals to become BPI certified, successful completion of an exam to confirm the candidate’s knowledge and skills and a practicum evaluation is required to confirm the candidate’s abilities.

By earning the HEP Quality Control Inspector certification, you prove that you can verify the compliance of retrofit work performed based on work plans and standards, conduct audits and inspections using diagnostic equipment, and can develop reports that specify corrective actions to achieve whole-house performance

Congratulations, Matt, on achieving this milestone!
