At RSR we take a holistic view to training. As accredited HERS trainers, we help raters pass the RESNET Rater Test and learn to use REM/Rate modeling software. But energy efficiency doesn’t just stop when a home is rated.

Homeowners and builders who need to implement energy efficient best practices and build to energy efficient codes need training too! That’s why we provide training specific to the needs of raters, homeowners, and builders. You can feel at ease knowing you have the expertise, certifications, and years of field experience behind every energy efficient decision you make for your home.
