The program includes a walk-through of two full HERS ratings, from interpreting the plans and specs to the final report. To earn the HERS Modeler designation, students will complete the training course, complete three mentored HERS rating models, and pass the RESNET Practical Evaluation as observed by a RESNET Training Provider.
