Online Classroom Training – Phase 1
The “classroom” phase of training is held entirely online using the EnergyLogic Academy’s online learning management system.

Our approach advances the state of online learning in the industry by engaging students with a full spectrum of multimedia components, interactive lessons, quizzes, progress evaluations, and live instructor interaction.
Classroom Learning Outcomes:
Field Training – Phase 2
After successfully completing the online training, candidates will join EnergyLogic (or a proxy trainer) for field training. The field training is dedicated to hands-on time with tools and to learning testing processes.
The field training takes place over 4 days. During the field portion, we will conduct diagnostic testing labs, audit multiple homes, and complete the exams.
The EnergyLogic Academy is committed to providing the highest quality field training. To this end, we are committed to small class sizes. Our field trainings are capped at 5 people to ensure extensive hands-on time with the tools and one-on-one time with the instructor.
Field Learning Outcomes:
BPI’s written and field exams will both be administered during field training.
To earn the Building Analyst certification, each candidate is required to take and successfully pass 2 exams (the written and field exams). The first (the written exam) is a 2 hour, 50 question exam administered in the presence of a proctor. The second exam is a 2 hour field practical exam completed in the presence of a proctor. Both of these exams are completed during our field training.
The EnergyLogic Academy is approved as a BPI Test Center.
