So if an inspector is not a Colorado resident, then what?

I don’t really know. Ask Alexandra. It might be required under our grant.

Remember, even if you get free education, in this case a BPI approved CEU or even take a approved BPI BA course, the testing for BPI certification and/or accrediation will still cost you and according to some training sites the written exam and field exams are going up in price…:frowning:
