Completing this two-part course is the necessary step toward becoming a Certified Home Energy Rater authorized to administer the Home Energy Rating System (HERS) developed by the Residential Energy Services Network (RESNET). As a Certified Home Energy Rater, you will be able to produce energy rating reports that will help homebuyers and homeowners qualify for financing incentives through a variety of private and government loan programs. Raters provide the documentation for home builders to receive credit for beyond-code construction, and with more modern energy codes, raters can help builders demonstrate compliance via the Energy Rating Index (ERI) pathway.
Home Energy Ratings can be performed on both new and existing homes and are utilized by numerous energy and green building certification programs including ENERGY STAR, EarthCraft House, LEED for Homes and National Green Building Standard, as well as many utility rebate programs and energy code compliance efforts.
Price includes the cost for the RESNET National Certification written/electronic exam and the RESNET HERS Rater Simulation Practical Exam.
