Our hybrid HERS rater training classes include an online and a classroom training component. This comprehensive package has everything a student needs to be well prepared to become a HERS rater. HERS Rater Training is the first step towards Rater Certification. To learn more about the requirements for certification click here. Both online and classroom components are required for Rater Certification. This course has been approved by the Massachusetts Workforce Training Fund, which has funds available for employee training.
The full training cost of $2595 includes the combined online and classroom components, and $525 in RESNET testing fees.
The Alliance is now offering an online only option as a stand-alone component for anyone who wants to know about ratings but does not want to become a rater. The online only component costs $750 and includes information about building science, energy modeling, and performance testing. This offer also includes an NEHERS manual ($100 value) and a 1-year associate membership to the Alliance ($50 value) but does not include simulation software or RESNET testing. The online section has been pre-approved for 17.5 BPI CEUs.
