I am in the process of assessing the value of seeking the HEP QCI Cerificaiton. You have to know a lot just to qualify to take the exams. It costs a lot to get the training plus taking the exams if you qualify. The question is once you have gone through all that pain, is there a market for your services? The Weatherization Assistance Program's (WAP) comprehensive Quality Work Plan requires that all quality control inspections be signed off by a QCI professional as of yesterday. Does that mean that the market for these qualified professional has grown significantly? I can't get a good handle on the number of QCI professionals in the country. The BPI site seems out of date in their listings. Those of you who have achieved this lofty goal: has it been worth it?
