HERS Modeler Certification for REM/Rate & Ekotrope

CEUs: 36 ESC | 18 RESNET 

Being a HERS Modeler is much, much more than data entry.  The ability to generate an accurate energy model is one of the most difficult and critical responsibilities of a HERS Rating.  This course provides information about home energy ratings, but also about the energy and construction considerations that must be made when developing an energy model.  Students can expect to learn construction math and building science as well as obtain a working knowledge of where the model data comes from and why it is important.  An understanding of what data are gathered in the field, what to expect from that field data gathering, and how to turn that data into modeling information and enter it into HERS Modeling tools is all included in this training. YOU HAVE THE CHOICE: This course can be used to become certified as a HERS Modeler for the Ekotrope software or REM/Rate software or both!

Cost: $545.00

Insulation and Radiant Barrier Evaluation

CEUs: 0.5 ICC | 5 ESC | 5 RESNET

This online, on-demand training class will be of interest to Insulation Installers, HERS Raters, RFIs, Code Officials, and General Contractors. The amount of items and standards to be considered and evaluated when determining the quality of a residential insulation job or the installation of radiant barriers is surprising. The installation, the application, and the specific materials used all have their own set of requirements. After those have been met, the installation itself must be evaluated to determine the quality of that installation. Insulation and Radiant Barrier Evaluation walks you through all these considerations and explains how Grading works for insulation and radiant barrier installations according to the ANSI/RESNET/ICC 301 Standard.

Cost: $100.00
