This is my first post so I wanted to start off with an introduction. My name is TyJ Arambulo, I graduated in Civil Engineering in 2006 and am a current LEED AP. I am hoping to start a career in the energy industry and I thought a great place to start would be in energy auditing. I hope one day to design energy efficient buildings and at the early part of my career would like to be retrofitting homes.
To start a career in energy auditing, I decided to start training towards being certified as a BPI Building Analyst. I chose this route because in California they have the Energy Upgrade California program which requires all auditors to be BPI Certified. My question for you folks is: how is the job outlook for such an occupation? Is getting BPI certification the proper first step in entering this industry? It would also be helpful to know a little bit about the company you work for and what it is you do.
Thanks for the information.
