RESNET Congratulates New ICC HERS® Rater/IECC Certification Specialists

Oct 6, 2020


On Sunday, February 23, prior to the RESNET 2020 Building Performance Conference in Scottsdale, there was a special pre-conference session for Residential Energy Inspector/Plan Examiner Training and Testing.

Certified RESNET HERS® Raters who successfully pass this ICC Residential Energy Inspector/Plan Examiner exam will earn the new ICC HERS® Rater/IECC Certification Specialist certification.

Now, more than ever, there is a business opportunity for HERS® Raters to fill the role of verifying energy code compliance. The new ICC HERS® Rater/IECC Certification Specialist certification for RESNET HERS® Raters 1) combines the energy code knowledge of code officials with the energy efficiency knowledge of HERS® Raters to identify experts in energy plan review and inspection; 2) verifies competency in energy performance measurement and energy code proficiency; and 3) increases HERS® Raters’ credibility with code officials and presents new business opportunities in expanding its services to include energy code verification.

With the new certification, HERS® Raters can supplement the work of code jurisdictions facing resource constraints that affect their ability to conduct the necessary reviews and can provide both code compliance and energy performance rating services.

Over 200 HERS® Raters have earned the new ICC HERS Rater/IECC Certification certification. RESNET congratulates the 22 new certificants below:
