HCB Staff to Complete HERS Rater Certification Training


ELKINS, WV (February 16, 2010)

Staff at Highland Community Builders will be participating in training to become Home Energy Rating System (HERS) certified.  This HERS Rater training cycle begins the week of February 15, 2010, and runs through April 1, 2010.

HERS Raters analyze houses for energy efficiency.  Official HERS ratings are key parts of EnergyStar and most other green building certification systems.

HERS Rater training, which is sanctioned by the Residential Energy Services Network (www.natresnet.org), consists of 6 weeks of online coursework followed by four days of hands-on training and an exam.  The training and exam period will be offered in Elkins from March 29-April 1, 2010.
