RESNET Adopts Policy to Allow BPI Approved Proctors to Proctor the RESNET Online Rater Test

November 23rd, 2010 - Posted by RESNET under Rater Information, RESNET News, RESNET Notes - November 2010

The RESNET Training and Education Committee has adopted a policy that will allow Building Performance Institute (BPI) proctors to proctor the online RESNET National Rater Test.  RESNET Accredited Rater Training Providers will now have the additional option of having a BPI Approved Proctor to proctor the rater test in addition to libraries, schools, colleges or independent testing institutions.  The policy is seen as another step in the direction of greater cooperation between RESNET and BPI.

    I take it the BPI proctor must work through a RESNET Training Provider to be able to offer this service. I like the idea but why would they want to do that?

    This is great news! I suggested this to Steve Baden a couple weeks ago and it’s great that it was adopted. I am a Proctor and an affiliate for BPI and I have BPI clients standing by to become part of the RESNET family.

    Please contact me ASAP to let me know what I need to do to be on your approved list and begin administering the RESNET online exams.

    This is an advantage to a Accredited Training Provider, as I understand it, in that it gives them flexibility when scheduling the online exam for their students, either for the initial test or to retake it.
    Since Rater Certification Candidates must still perform the 2 Supervised Ratings, and required performance testing, in the presence of an Accredited Trainer, it doesn’t create a lot of opportunity to “Challenge” the exam, and bypass the training.
