Program Overview

The field portion of HERS Rater Training is 4 days of field training designed to introduce the HERS Rater inspection processes and diagnostic testing. During the field training we will complete 2 practice ratings according to the RESNET training standard. Practice ratings will be performed on an existing and new home.

This is an instructor facilitated course. Students will have one-on-one instruction on the testing equipment. Much of the field work will be done in a group setting where peer to peer interaction is used to complete the practice ratings.
