Self-Guided Independent HERS Rater Training

For some professionals, the cost and time out of work of following the traditional training route to certification is not feasible. This alternative path to the traditional classroom training is intended for industry professionals who have a background in one or more of the following fields: construction, engineering, building science, energy audits and energy modeling.

Although this approach to certification is not for everyone, it can be significantly less expensive, as forgoing attending the training allows a rater candidate to avoid most of the cost associated with travel, lodging, food, and the actual cost of the training itself.

Our BER HERS Rater Training and Certification Package is a blend of self-guided study, online training, field training, and includes all examinations. BER provides training materials and support throughout this process to prepare the Rater Candidate for the successful completion of the required exams, two training ratings and three provisional ratings to become Certified.

All training can be performed without attending a traditional HERS Rater training course or leaving home. The field training and probationary ratings can all be scheduled on consecutive days.

The package price for all the above is $2,999.00. This is the lowest price in the industry. If you are interested in a payment plan, we can schedule one for you.
