The Alliance 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 this training. We offer a comprehensive training package that includes everything a student needs to be well prepared to become a HERS rater. 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. Due to Covid-19, the classroom component will be conducted live over distance learning. Students will not have to travel to attend this training. 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 certification.
