RESNET HERS Rater
Why take this course:
A RESNET HERS Rater certification is particularly valuable for new construction because RESNET’s Home Energy Rating System is the only way to qualify new homes for the Environmental Protection Agency's ENERGY STAR label.
There is a $2000 45L Tax Credit for homebuilders/contractors that construct homes that are 50% more energy efficient than the IECC 2004 standard, provided that they have HERS Rater Certification.
CleanEdison’s HERS Rater training will prepare students to perform home energy ratings and offer ways in which energy can be saved. This training can stand alone, or it can be a complement to our BPI certification courses.
This course is ideal for insulation professionals, general contractors, home inspectors or other individuals interested in energy efficiency in residential homes.
