Workforce Development Program

Elizabethtown Gas has partnered with Build Green Maine to offer three residential energy efficiency training programs. All training courses will be offered at no cost to participants and will be fully funded by the Elizabethtown Gas Workforce Development program. We are excited to offer the trainings listed below to bolster the local workforce and support New Jersey’s more energy-efficient future. With diversity, equity and inclusion in mind and a focus on overburden communities, everyone can take advantage of the program to expand your knowledge as the energy efficiency industry continues to rapidly expand. In addition to training, Elizabethtown Gas will work to connect successfully certified participants with potential employment opportunities.  

Build Green Maine’s Building Performance Institute (BPI) certification course covers everything a candidate needs to know and demonstrate to successfully obtain BPI certification. The curriculum addresses all the testable knowledge items listed for the BPI Building Science Principles, Building Analyst Technician and Building Analyst Professional certifications. All certifications require passing an online or field test based on the course.  The courses are designed to prepare industry professionals for careers in energy auditing, building diagnosis and inspection, air sealing & insulation installation, and high-performance construction. Participants do not need to be an Elizabethtown Gas customer to take advantage of this opportunity! See below for course related details. 

  1. Building Science Principles (BSP) Certificate Training – This one-day class is designed for new entrants to the energy efficiency industry, as well as back-office personnel who support industry work.  The BSP is now the starting point for the professional BPI certifications.  It provides an overview of the energy efficiency industry, residential construction and building systems, the field of Building Science and the basics of energy conservation.  Upon completion of the program, participants will need to pass a 100-question BPI test to earn a Building Science Principles Certificate.  

  2. Building Analyst Technician (BAT) Certification Training – With a prerequisite of the BSP Certificate, the BAT course will prepare workers for the field of weatherization, whether as energy auditors or weatherization technicians.  Building on the BSP, this course provides detailed learning and practice of building inspection, data gathering, diagnostic testing, energy conservation measures, HVAC systems and health and safety concerns.  Upon completion of this training class, students will need to pass a 4-hour proctored field exam in order to gain the BPI Building Analyst Technician certification.  

  3. Building Analyst Professional (BAP) Certification Training – With a prerequisite of the BAT certification, the BAP course will upskill existing professionals with work scope development, energy modeling, HVAC systems, best practices, and on-site management.  Upon completion of this training class, students will need to pass a 2-hour proctored online exam in order to gain the BPI Building Analyst Professional certification
