HERS® Associate

With the increase in the demand for HERS Ratings, builders are increasingly requesting suppliers to relate what contribution the product would have on their homes’ HERS Index score. The RESNET HERS Associate designation trains professionals to answer that question without the time and expense of going through the full HERS Rater training.

This new RESNET certificate level designation is essential for anyone needing a working understanding of RESNET and HERS for uses other than conducting ratings.
