Healthy Home Evaluator (HHE) Second Pilot Certification Form Now Available

Healthy Home Evaluator (HHE) Second Pilot Certification Form Now Available

MALTA, NY – July 27, 2016 – In the beginning of April, BPI launched the first form of the Healthy Home Evaluator (HHE) credential pilot exam at the ACI National Home Performance Conference in Austin, TX. This first form has been completed in the pilot phase and the second form is now available. Results from both forms will be released after the second form pilot phase is complete. The credential builds upon a prerequisite of the BPI Building Analyst (BA), Energy Auditor (EA) or Quality Control Inspector (QCI) certifications to verify competencies required to conduct in-depth healthy home environmental risk assessments.

The credential is a critical building block for home performance contractors and WAP providers participating in DOE's Weatherization Plus Health initiative. In addition to the whole house building science knowledge already demonstrated by the BA, EA or QCI certifications, the HHE certification verifies the individual has the skills to assess, collect and analyze home health-based data, and develop a prioritized scope of work to address hazards.
