Rater Certification

This course is the first step toward becoming a Certified Home Energy Rater. As an energy rater, you will be able to produce energy rating reports that will help home buyers and homeowners qualify for financing incentives through a variety of private and government loan programs. This course complies with the Mortgage Industry National Home Energy Rating System Accreditation Standard which has been adopted by Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and the National Association of State Energy Officials.  To learn more about the National Residential Energy Services Network (RESNET) please visit their website at www.resnet.us.

To receive your official energy rater certification you will need the following:

  1. Be able to demonstrate proficiency with the entire rating process.

  2. Contract with a HERS Provider accredited in your state.

  3. Complete 5 probationary energy ratings, two of which may be credited from the course; however, ACC Consulting only credits one from the course toward the rater certification program.  The additional ratings must be submitted within 12 months of the last day of the course.

  4. Complete the RESNET National Rater Test with a score of 80% or greater.  This electronic test will be given at the end of the course. (For a complete list of study topics click here.)
