SUNY Canton Experts Offer Building Analyst Trainings

Friday, February 12th, 2010

Faculty experts from SUNY Canton’s Alternative and Renewable Energy Systems program will be providing valuable Building Performance Institute (BPI) certified Building Analyst training, beginning Feb. 23 in Watertown.

“Every building works as a system,” said Michael J. Newtown, an Assistant Professor in the Alternative and Renewable Energy Systems program and BPI Instructor. “We show contractors why some homes fail, why some excel, and how to resolve residential heating and cooling problems.”

Newtown said that the training uses a “whole house” performance-based approach with the end result of a more comfortable, safe, and durable home.

Upcoming SUNY Canton BPI trainings include courses beginning at:

  • 3 p.m., Feb. 23, at the Cornell Cooperative Extension in Watertown.
  • 9 a.m., March 2, at ComLinks in Malone.
  • 9 a.m., March 15, at Clinton Community College in Plattsburgh.
  • 3 p.m., April 19, at SUNY Canton.

Newtown and his staff of highly trained professionals will also be offering Envelope Professional training beginning at 9 a.m. April 5 at the Cornell Cooperative Extension in Watertown.

“The knowledge contained in the BPI trainings make contractors more marketable to prospective clients,” Newtown said. “As end consumers look to save money and be ‘greener,’ building efficiency is becoming a necessity rather than a luxury.”

The BPI training includes 24 hours of classroom instruction and 12 hours of field training. Topics include identifying building performance problems such as ice dams, air quality issues, calculating energy consumption and analysis, and analyzing buildings using “blower door” technology. Written and field exams for the Building Analyst Professional certification follow the trainings.

New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) will reimburse 75 to 100 percent of the training program fee upon successful completion of the course.
