HERS Rater Certification Training
The week-long, intensive session prepares students to pass the four RESNET certification exams and to perform energy efficiency ratings with industry-specific software. Priority Energy combines RESNET’s curriculum with our proprietary building science material for an interactive week of classroom instruction, hands-on lab work and in-field home assessments.
RESNET students must also complete energy ratings on five houses under the guidance of our certified HERS raters. Our students complete two of the ratings during class and perform three mentored ratings on their own. Once all ratings are submitted satisfactorily, the HERS rater certificate is awarded.
Summary of requirements to become a HERS Rater:
- Complete Rater Training and 2 in-class ratings
- Pass National Rater Core Exam (written)
- Pass RESNET Practical Simulation Exam (interactive)
- Pass National Rater Combustion Safety Exam (written)
- Pass National Rater Combustion Safety Simulation Exam (interactive)
- Complete 3 Probationary Ratings
Our RESNET training package includes all of the exams and mentoring, plus a one year REMRate software license and membership to Priority Energy’s providership.
We are also available long after the class for additional support.
Quality Assurance Reviews
Active HERS Raters, or raters who are performing Confirmed Ratings, are required to have their work evaluated by their Rating Provider. Building file reviews will be conducted on at a rate of one (1) home or ten percent (10%) of the Rater's annual total of rated homes. In person or on-site reviews are conducted at a rate of one (1) home or one percent (1%) of a Rater's annual total of submitted homes.
If a Rater is inactive or not submitting confirmed ratings, he/she must maintain his/her certification by attaining continuing education credits.
