Building Professional Institute (BPI)
The Building Professional Institute (BPI) was originally established at the University of Texas at Arlington in 1992 by the Building Officials Association of Texas (BOAT) and the Construction Research Center (CRC) at UTA. The BPI is typically an annual week long program of quality education and training for the Building Professionals including Builders, Building Officials, Contractors, Municipal Inspectors, Real Estate Inspectors,Architects, Engineers, Plumbers, Fire Protection Personnel, Code Enforcement, Permit Technicians, Electricians,and Environmental Health and Safety Personnel. Many of these professionals need areas certifications and approved continuing education to maintain their licensing and expertise. Such courses and training are developed and offered by BPI.
To satisfy the huge demand of training and education in the state of Texas, BOAT established four annual BPI’s: Houston BPI, North Texas BPI, Central Texas BPI and South Texas BPI.
Starting in November 2017, BOAT will be working with the International Code Council. A new registration system is being developed and will be up soon.
