What is the Building Analyst Professional course?

Prerequisites: None, but experience in building trades is helpful.

Audience: This course is ideal for home inspectors, HVAC technicians, general contractors, home builders, students, and anyone interesting in understanding the house as a system or seeking a career in energy auditing.
