Get Trained and Get Qualified
BEAT auditor approval is a 4 step process. Education and Understanding, Training, Testing, and Demonstration. Together, the 4 cornerstones of the approval process give auditors the tools to conduct a valuable audit and building owners the confidence that the audit is conducted safely, accurately and efficiently.
Education and Understanding
Understanding can be gained through conventional learning or practical experience. BEAT gives credit for the knowledge, not the path.
BEAT Training identifies the key features of the BEAT audit, how to conduct a BEAT audit and touches on the financial and environmental impact calculations. It shows you what’s special about the BEAT program.
Beat auditors are tested on their understanding of the material.
To become an authorized BEAT auditor, the candidate will perform a mock audit with an instructor to put the theory into practice.
As an approved BEAT Auditor, you will need to know a little about Building Science, Safety and learn how to conduct an audit. The following subject areas and hours of learning are required. If you are currently enjoying a career within the Energy Conservation industry, you are familiar with most course requirements, simply submit your certificate of participation and you will be credited with your attendance. If you are new to the industry, you must provide proof (certificate or learning credits) that you have attended lectures and accumulated the required hours. Many of these courses are available on the Letstalkpur.com website under the Continuing Education section. All are available at the various providers listed.
