About the Program

Growing occupant demand, investor pressures, and building code requirements have led to a new standard in high-performance building, driving many markets to mandate comprehensive sustainability and energy-efficiency programs. To meet this challenge, BOMI International presents a new High-Performance Program, designed by industry experts to further enhance the competencies—knowledge, skills, and abilities needed to perform key job functions—of professionals who are responsible for implementing sustainable initiatives. 
           
This three-course comprehensive program delivers an integrated and practical curriculum that encompasses virtually every aspect of a sustainable built environment. These courses provide industry professionals with the tools and advanced knowledge necessary for understanding, creating, and applying sustainable initiatives; optimizing current and future high-performance building operations; maximizing cost-savings and environmental stewardship; and reaching individual professional development goals.
           
The new program offers professionals the opportunity to obtain a High-Performance Certificate, or to earn an enhanced RPA|HP or FMA|HP Designation
