Energy Efficiency Training 

What is RESNET?

RESNET provides the leading professional certification for home energy raters.

RESNET provides the leading professional certification for home energy raters and is the creator of the Home Energy Rating System (HERS).  The HERS Rater certification is highly respected nationally, and provides certified Raters with the ability to quantify the relative energy efficiency of both new and existing homes.  Raters measure a home's performance through various on site evaluations, diagnostic testing, and by inputting results into specialized software that generates a home energy rating based on the HERS Index.  In addition, RESNET has identified three levels of home energy audits that HERS Raters can offer, listed in order of ascending scrutiny: Home Energy Survey, Building Performance Audit, and Comprehensive HERS Rating.

RESNET Standards are recognized by the U.S. federal government and are used to verify eligibility for tax incentives and programs including the Environmental Protection Agency’s ENERGY STAR program and the Department of Energy’s Building America Program.  In addition, the mortgage industry utilizes RESNET’s standards to assist in the creation of energy efficient mortgages.

 What does this mean for me?

A HERS Rating delivers a vitally important service to homebuyers, lenders, and appraisers by providing a clear and robust third-party analysis of a home’s energy efficiency.  As a result, the demand for HERS Raters will continue to rise as the awareness of the value of energy efficiency increases.

“If you’re looking for certification training to enter the Building Performance Industry, if you’re interested perhaps in gaining a BPI certification, if you’re trying to further your education for whatever reason, I can’t make any stronger recommendation than that you sign up for a course hosted by Apple Energy Group. These guys have got the right stuff. And I think it’ll be well worth your time to stick with your course of study in order to move your career forward. You’ll probably use one of our textbooks in that course and I think that what you’re going to learn is going to be more than you could possibly hope for. Apple Energy Group can do that for you. Good luck in this next career transition.”
