Home Upgrade Core Training

Marketing Best Practices_medThis free, three-day course is required for installers without a BPI Building Analyst on staff. It covers basic installation of EE measures as detailed in the Home Upgrade Installation Specifications. The course is also recommended for all staff at Participating Contractor companies.

It is a required course if you do not already have a BPI Building Analyst on staff and it is strongly recommended even if you do.

In this three-day course, you will learn fundamentals of building science and gain practical experience with core measures in the Home Upgrade program, including:

  • How to find air leaks in the building shell and properly seal them
  • How to insulate the attic plane
  • How to test forced air duct systems and building shells to program standards
  • Combustion appliance safety testing practices
  • Essential components of PG&E’s Home Upgrade program
  • How program measures fit with HERS, HERS II, BPI, and other certifications and utility programs

Course time is evenly split between the classroom and a demonstration house.

Frequency: Build It Green conducts up to 4 of these each year. Non BPI certified contractors are required to retake Core Training every two years to refresh skills as the Program changes and evolves over time.
