The Air Leakage Control Installer (formerly known as RBE-WHALCI) certification verifies the ability to tighten the building envelope, reduce energy loss from air leakage, and better indoor air quality by reducing pollutants and allergens. Installers improve thermal comfort and energy efficiency through the proper installation of dense-pack insulation materials.
Please read the Air Leakage Control Installer Certification Scheme Handbook prior to applying for the certification.
