MALTA, N.Y. — The Building Performance Institute Inc. (BPI) released its 2011 end of year report, which detailed a year of strong growth for the home performance credentialing and standards setting organization.

In 2011, BPI certifications grew 120 percent over 2010 figures. A total of 14,571 certifications were granted in 2011, bringing the total active certifications to 31,662. In response to ANSI protocols requiring certification bodies demonstrate that training is independent of the evaluation and certification process, BPI transitioned its relationship with several training organizations from affiliates to BPI test centers. A total of 304 test centers operated in 2011, up from 242 in 2010.

Proctors rose to 1,400, up from 1,000 in 2010 and more than 30 states included accredited contracting companies. BPI was selected by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) as the certifying body to develop four new ISO 17024 accredited certifications in 2012. The institute developed new quality assurance procedures for proctors and test centers and launched its Green Jobs Connection initiative to connect BPI certified professionals from the federal Weatherization Assistance Program to jobs within BPI’s private contractor network.
