HERS Index Online Training

This online training is perfect for builders, remodelers, contractors, or anyone who doesn't want to take the field training and certification exams (right now or never)*. Click here for the complete RESNET HERS Rater Certification Package.

More and more, builders are required to have their homes energy rated and assigned a HERS Index score – to comply with codes, for MLS listings, to provide verification for utility or government programs such as Energy Star, LEED® for Homes, etc. With HERS Index Training you can PREVENT issues before they arise. Fix problems BEFORE they get detected. Avoid the need for a re-test, and get your homes on the market sooner.

With HERS Index Training, you can DESIGN your homes to the desired (or required) specifications. Don’t wait for the independent HERS Rater to find design flaws. Changes are expensive. Do it right the first time! 

This self-paced online training provides the knowledge you need to design energy efficient homes, and test new and existing homes and assign a HERS Index score.
