ABAA has developed NEW programs to thoroughly train and certify professionals to conduct commercial whole building airtightness testing. The ABAA Blower Door Training program is a 40-hour program delivered over 5 days by industry experts and representatives from both blower door manufacturers. The purpose is to educate both entry-level and experienced blower door technicians in the planning, preparation, and execution of a blower door airtightness test on commercial and large buildings in conformance with industry standard test methods. The training aims to equip blower door technicians with the knowledge, skills, and abilities necessary to appropriately evaluate, prepare, test, analyze, and report on a building’s airtightness performance. The ABAA Blower Door Certification program provides two pathways to certification based on your knowledge, skills, and abilities in large building blower door testing. The comprehensive program, which meets the requirements for ISO 17024 personnel certification, was developed by industry leaders and subject matter experts, and is designed to recognize you and your business as large blower door testing experts.
