Pro Building Analysis Training Services

Since our start in 2009 Insight Property Services, Inc. has trained over 2,000 students throughout the United States. As a BPI Certified Education Provider, as well as an Illinois Home Inspector Continuing Education provider, we pride ourselves on going above and beyond the “normal” scope of education.

Our goal is to reform the home industry, starting with the architecture and design all the way to groundwork. Architects, Builders, Contractors, and Home Inspectors all benefit from training. If we begin to design buildings that are sustainable, energy-efficient, and healthy, the rest will follow. We believe in going above and beyond what is expected because that is what allows us to grow and to create a better future where “Green Homes” are the new normal.

We believe that by continuously educating ourselves and others we can make this a reality. Energy-efficient, healthy, and sustainable homes are achievable, and the more we educate the people at the forefront of the industry, such as the architects, builders, and the contractors they hire, the more time, money, and frustration people will save when it comes to their homes.

We are a certified BPI Testing Center, a licensed IL Home Inspector Continuing Education Provider, and we provide continuing education credits for NATE and NARI as well. We provide training throughout Illinois, Wisconsin, Michigan, Indiana, Minnesota, and across the United States.

BPI Building Science Principles Training

Would understanding the interactions of building systems and their effects on home performance assist you in your position or your business? Earning the Building Science Principles certificate is your first step into the world of energy-efficient home performance. Building science demonstrates how various components of the home interact to affect the home’s overall performance.

Understand the relationship between the building envelope, heating, A/C, insulation, mechanical ventilation, lighting, appliances, and other systems of the home. Learn how all of these systems affect the comfort, health, and safety of occupants and the durability of the home. This non-technical BPI certificate is the first step toward understanding & improving whole-house building performance. Perfect for salespeople, admin personnel, architects, or anyone who needs to know about building science, but may never need to perform testing.

Providing professional Building, Construction, Inspection, and Audit training to Architects, General Contractors and Builders since 2009.

Home Performance Field Experience


Has it been a while since you’ve performed a BPI Energy Audit on a house? If you need refresher training or are looking to earn additional BPI CEUs, this is a great BPI training opportunity! You can join one of Insight’s Field Proctors at the home of one of their customers or one of yours.

Insight’s proctor will provide any necessary test equipment and will guide you in testing the home. This evaluation will follow the BPI 1200 standards and will include generating a Home Energy Score and actionable work scope.

This course will consist of following the Home Performance Testing Procedure of completing a Homeowner Interview, an Exterior Walk-around, an Interior Walk-through, an Attic/Crawlspace Inspection, and inspecting the mechanical equipment. Then the class will test for gas leaks, perform applicable combustion safety testing, and measure & evaluate mechanical ventilation. Building infiltration testing will include blower door testing, infrared surveying, zone-pressure testing, and pressure panning. Finally, there will be data gathering for generating a Home Energy Score.

FOR CERTIFICATION: ​Your completed Home Energy Score and a prioritized work-scope will be submitted and evaluated in order to complete the training and earn BPI CEUs.
