Learning the health and safety issues that go hand and hand with home performance was eye opening for me. Pairing the energy efficiency aspect of home upgrades with health and safety makes the BPI training very valuable for people.

I love how BPI as an organization is both transparent and accessible. If you have any questions or just want to discuss home performance with experts, it isn’t hard to get a hold of somebody willing to have these discussions with you.

As I learned more from the BPI trainings and on the job experience, my reason for staying in the field is that I feel like I help people every day. And in doing so I help ensure their families’ health and safety through all of the safety checks I’m required to perform. I love my work and feel so very fortunate to work in the energy efficiency field.
