I'm at the ENERGY STAR train-the-trainer training in Raleigh for the
next two days. This is the second of 4 such events that are scheduled
for the first half of this month to get the Version 3 Partner training
curriculum delivered to HERS training providers. Actually, it's turning into another part of the feedback loop, and the delivery of the curriculum is now delayed.

In case you aren't aware, the HVAC verification gets much more difficult. There will be two HVAC checklists - one for the rater and one for the contractor. If you qualify ENERGY STAR homes, you definitely should read more about Version 3. Here's the link to the most current guidelines:

It'll be interesting to see how the class goes over the next two days.
I'm sure I'll be blogging about it, but I wanted to open up a discussion
here, too. Do you have any questions about Version 2.5 or Version 3
that you'd like me to ask here at the training? If so, post them here or email them to
me privately (abailes@energyvanguard.com).
