Earning the IDL certification is a simple, comprehensive and affordable way for technicians of builders, remodelers, HVAC and insulation contractors to gain skills needed to offer duct leakage and blower door tests, in compliance with IECC codes for new home construction or existing home remodels.
Passing the exam (field exam only, allotted time: 1.5 hours) verifies you can conduct duct leakage tests to the ASTM E1554-07 standard and blower door tests to the ASTM E779 standard. Begin with this affordable, single measure credential and work your way up to BPI's "house-as-a-system" certifications using real-time field experience.
