Expedited RESNET® HERS Rater Training – Phase 1 for Experienced Energy Professionals


Do you already have experience as an energy professional? If you’re BPI certified, an RFI, an engineer, a home auditor, an architect or have  significant experience in new home construction, you may qualify to take our expedited RESNET HERS Rater Online Training.

Expedited HERS Rater Online Training has all of the content featured in our traditional course, with the addition of optional test out quizzes. You’ll have one attempt to take a chapter’s test out quiz and pass with a score of 90% or higher. If you pass the test out quiz for a specific chapter of the training, you’ll be able to skip all of the lessons in that chapter. Don’t worry, if you test out of a chapter or two and decide later you’d like to brush up on the content before your RESNET exams, you’ll still have access to all of the lessons.

Expedited RESNET® HERS Rater Training – Phase 1 for Experienced Energy Professionals covers all of the classroom knowledge necessary to become a HERS Rater.

Program Overview

Phase 1 of the EnergyLogic Academy HERS Rater training is designed to allow participants to navigate through the knowledge base needed for a HERS Rater at the users own pace. The course prepares students for the extensive knowledge needed in building science, building materials, integrated construction processes, HVAC equipment, and diagnostic testing equipment and processes.

The HERS Rater Training online course covers the core knowledge for the HERS Rater certification. By enrolling in our self-paced, open enrollment course, you will have 90 days to complete the training. You can complete the training at your own pace, and you do not need to take the whole enrollment period if it is not needed. There are 24 modules in the course – each module will take a minimum of 2 hours to complete, with some taking over 4 hours.

Phase 1 does not complete the training requirements for HERS Rater candidates. After completing phase 1 students must also join a RESNET Training Provider for field training.
