NEHERS is pleased to offer high quality HERS rater training classes in the Northeast, approximately 2-3 times per year. We have contracted with Performance Systems Development (PSD) to run all three of our 2021 trainings. Our hybrid HERS rater training classes have an online component, which includes all of the building science theory, and a classroom component, which includes all of the hands-on practical training and testing that is necessary to pass the rater exams. HERS rater training is the first step towards rater certification. Both online and classroom components are required for certification.
This course has been approved by the Massachusetts Workforce Training Fund, which has funds available for employee training. Please visit our website for details about how to apply.
