HERS Rater training is the middle step to becoming an expert in the field of applied building science. To earn this RESNET certification, the candidate must be able to climb ladders, carry 35 pounds, pass a National Core Competency academic exam, a Combustion Appliance Zone (CAZ) and Workscope academic exam, a graded field evaluation, produce two software energy simulation models, pass a CAZ simulator exam, and if you are going to work on ENERGY STAR New Homes verifications- an ENERGY STAR exam. You must also perform 3 probationary ratings under the supervision of a Quality Assurance Designee (QAD), or a Quality Assurance Designee Delegate (QADD).
