There is an urgent national and international need to construct or rebuild housing, especially in light of the incredible magnitude of damage from recent disasters. Job growth for certified home energy raters and rating field inspectors is rapidly increasing, especially now that certified raters can perform energy code compliance inspections as part of the recent national and international codes. Programs such as LEED® for Homes and ENERGY STAR® rely on certified home energy raters to test, inspect and verify compliance with requirements.
If the world is to move from energy waste and inadequate, unsafe buildings into a more sustainable and resilient future then home energy raters, rating field inspectors and other professionals will be relied upon to help facilitate these changes.
ESI has courses specifically applicable for residential home energy raters, energy auditors and residential field inspectors (RFIs).
