This will be a highly interactive session aimed at encouraging participation from the full range of intended audiences. The goal will be to present a framework for dialogue on what is and what is not working in the healthy homes arena. BPI created a Healthy Home Evaluator credential six years ago for the person who has the diagnostic test capabilities to perform the in-home diagnostic testing work. Now there is a Healthy Housing Principles certificate of knowledge along with a reference guide that helps a much broader audience conduct preliminary healthy homes assessment when they are in homes. Are these two credentials on target with the intended audiences? What changes would you recommend to make them a better fit with the market?
By attending this session, attendees will:
Define what protocols are needed to help Health Home Evaluator (HHE) certified professionals to conduct a full healthy home assessment for building occupants
Determine how to better align the Healthy Housing Principles certificate of knowledge to the communities that need to have access to this information
Learn how to build relationships with the medical community and insurance providers to enhance the delivery of healthy housing upgrades in the market
