The Home Energy Professional (HEP) Crew Leader course is a comprehensive, five-day training designed to prepare students to take the written and practical exams for the HEP Crew Leader Certification. This certification is based on the Crew Leader Job Task Analysis, an industry-led collaboration directed by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), which defines the knowledge, skills and abilities necessary to perform the job of a crew leader working in the weatherization or home performance industries.
To achieve the Crew Leader Certification, a student must receive a passing score on three (3) exams: a written exam, a field exam and a multiple choice exam covering practical field components. Students seeking this certification must meet additional prerequisites in order to qualify to take the exams (see Prerequisites section below) and must provide proof of approval from BPI in order to take the exams. Please note that, for this course, the cost of the exams is NOT included in the price and must be paid for and scheduled separately. This training has been approved for 14 BPI Continuing Education Units (CEUs). Additional information regarding this and other HEP certifications may be found here: http://www.bpi.org/certified-professionals.
This course includes both classroom and lab/field instruction.
