  • There are multiple BPI certifications available. This class is dedicated to Building Analyst Certification (top left). There are additional single family certifications as well as multifamily certifications (second row). Although credentials can be earned in any order, Building Analyst is the beginner credential, so that’s where most students start.Envelope/Shell Professional Certification (second from left) is very closely related to Building Analyst Certification. Many students who want to earn a second credential go after the Envelope Professional certification because of the 80% overlap between the two. The biggest benefit to someone with two credentials is that their firm can become a BPI Accredited contractor, which makes them eligible to participate in a number of federal and state programs, including the Homestar program’s Gold Level.

    9. 9. LEED’s Adopted Cousin
    10. 10. Who is LEED’s Adopted Cousin? For the purposes of this presentation, you may consider Certified Sustainability Manager – aka CSM to be the adopted cousin of LEED. The learning objectives for LEED and CSM are similar, and we often see crossover in students taking both courses.

About CSM Certified Sustainability Manager • Define “Sustainability” • Understand the Factors Driving Sustainability • Learn the History of Sustainability • Discuss Reporting Metrics and Organizations * Students will complete an Everblue exam at the conclusion of this course. Upon passage of this exam, students will receive a certificate – not a certification.
