RESNET & BPI Certification


RESNET/HERS Rater Training &

BPI Energy Auditor Training 


NEW in 2014

All 2014 RESNET HERS Rater training will
 include the newly required CAZ (Combustion Appliance Zone) training. The CAZ segment requires students to pass 2 additional exams which are independent of the online RESNET HERS test. In order to become fully certified HERS Raters, candidates must pass the standard 50 question RESNET exam, the 2 CAZ exams and complete 5 mentored ratings.

All previously certified HERS raters are required to take CAZ training and pass the related tests by January 1st, 2015 to stay current with their HERS Rater standing. 

We are the only Midwest company certified to train Both RESNET & BPI Building Analyst, Envelope Specialist.  We also provide Heating Professional and A/C Heat Pump Training.

Our 5-day training programs will prepare students to take the RESNET Rater and/or BPI Building Analyst & Envelope Exams.  Our hands-on instructors will guide you through the fundamentals of a successful audit, building inspection techniques and equipment use, information gathering processes, and report preparation. We’ll show you what to inspect, how to inspect it, and how to market your business. 
Prices include text books (mailed in advance to the student's home), customized classroom work binders, simulated in-home audits, written exam fees and field exam fees.

Why Priority Energy?

 #1 - Our Reputation!  We recognize the Energy Auditing field is small and our reputation is only as good as the training we give our students.  This is not a training class for those who want to simply "pass the test" it is for those who want to understand the fundamentals and hold their own in the Energy Auditing field.  

#2 - We are local and accessible.  We are available long after the class for additional support.  For RESNET Raters, we are a Provider and can hold your license.  For BPI students, we administer the final field exams.  We are your partner and want to continue a long relationship with you.

#3 - If we say we're going to do something, We Do It!  Unlike other national companies which seem to offer training all over the country every single week, when we post a class we intend to fill it and we teach it!  We won't take your money to sell you on another time or location and we will immediately refund your money if we change the class time or location.  Plus, we do not hire outside instructors.  We are the instructors and are resposible to you.
