MALTA, N.Y. — The Building Performance Institute Inc. (BPI) announced the cost of BPI certification exams has been approved for GI Bill reimbursement. Eligible veterans in the Eastern Region of the United States may be reimbursed by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs when applications are submitted within one year from the time the test was taken.

States recognized in the Eastern Region include Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, D.C., and West Virginia.

BPI is planning to expand its reimbursement program nationwide and encourages veterans throughout the country to apply for GI Bill reimbursement. BPI is also providing logistical assistance nationwide to help all veterans through the reimbursement process.

Officials believe skills and experience obtained through military service, including technical skills and commitment to quality, are highly valued in the home performance industry and may contribute to obtaining BPI professional certification. For more information, visit
