MINHERS Addendum 59, Rater HERS Modeler Capabilities and Recertification

Nov 19, 2021

RESNET Announces the Adoption of MINHERS Addendum 59, Rater HERS Modeler Capabilities and Recertification

Addendum 59 revises the MINHERS Chapter 2 to establish clear HERS Modeler skill requirements for the certification of new HERS Raters and recertification of current HERS Raters.

Certified HERS Raters were grandfathered in as HERS Modelers and HERS Modelers are required to complete professional development training to retain the certification for modeling HERS Ratings. To maintain consistency in the requirements as well as to improve modeling consistency, the Addendum requires HERS Raters to meet the recertification requirements for HERS Modelers as part of their 18 hours of professional development. The HERS Rater training includes HERS Modeler training for new Raters seeking certification and HERS Rater capabilities now include those of a HERS Modeler.

The mandatory compliance date for Addendum 59 is January 1, 2022.
