Why should I take this training?

  1. It's required. All certified HERS Raters who plan to provide verification services for ENERGY STAR Version 3 homes must receive ENERGY STAR Version 3.0 training by an Accredited ENERGY STAR Version 3.0 Training Provider.
     
  2. It's online. Taking time off of work for trainings is not an option for most certified Raters. Thus, we are offering certified Raters the ability to attend the ENERGY STAR Version 3.0 Rater Training online.
     
  3. It earns Professional Development credits. See details above for RESNET Professional Development Credits and BPI Continuing Education Units.

If you have any questions on the above training, please contact Sue Davis at PSD at sdavis@psdconsulting.com.
