Program Overview

The online portion of HERS Rater training covers the core knowledge for the HERS Rater certification. This shortened supplemental course is geared toward those that already hold the BPI Building Analyst certification. If you are not a certified Building Analyst but feel that you have enough background knowledge to be eligible for this supplemental course, please contact us to discuss your experience.

The second phase of training is completed by joining EnergyLogic during a HERS Rater Field training. The standard HERS Rater field training is four days. For BPI Building Analysts we reduce the training to three days. The first day of the full HERS Rater Field training is dedicated to labs teaching participants about the blower door, duct testing, and pressure diagnostics. We excuse the BPI Building Analyst from this day of training. The BPI Building Analyst joins the class on the second day when the first practice rating is completed. They then participate in day three and four of the training.
