New Training Center
We are excited to announce that we opened our new BPI Certification and Exam Center in Silver Spring this week. The row-house facility is one of only five Building Performance Institute (BPI) Testing Centers in the state of Maryland. The training center will begin courses later this month, with two courses for BPI Building Analyst certification. We plan on training over 150 BPI Professionals per year through one-week classes in BPI Building Analyst and BPI Envelope Professional certifications.
We decided to develop the facility after years of conducting training and testing in our offices in Silver Spring. We realized that other businesses and professionals were also looking for places to train and test their building science acumen.
“There is a real need for better, real world experience in building science training. Unfortunately, there aren’t many resources in Maryland that address training needs. With our new training center we hope to improve the quality and professionalism of building scientists in the Washington, D.C. and Baltimore areas,” -Jim Conlon, our Owner
Our objective is to contribute to improved energy efficiency practices and a ‘whole-house’
We’ll have pictures of the training facility soon, and we’ll definitely keep you posted as our classes start later this month! In the mean time, check out a photo from the outside.
