We're so very pleased to announce our partnership with Building Performance Center Inc, in Folsom, CA. Our online training is the preparatory course for classroom training for Building Analyst training (BPI Certification). BPCi has a fantastic facility, the Field Training and Test House -- trainees are guaranteed lots of hands-on time with diagnostic equipment, in classes led by instructors who really know their stuff.

This is what we envisioned, working with great partners to amplify the benefits of hands-on training. BHE Building

 Science Basics is a benchmarking tool as well as an educational product. The online course makes sure that everyone coming into classroom or field training has a basic understanding of building science. An customizable exit survey 

allows the trainer to get a handle on the knowledge base of their trainees before class room or field time, so that thetrainer can focus on the needs of the group and, ultimately, offer them a tailored training program.

If you are interested in a blended learning program like this, please give us a shout. We're looking for more regional partners.
