On December 4, 2013, the RESNET Board adopted several proposed amendments that went into effect on January 4, 2014. These amendments changed the requirements for becoming a certified RESNET HERS Rater. Old requirements for becoming a Rater included passing the National Rater Core Exam, completing two probationary ratings during classroom training, and agreeing to the Quality Assurance (QA) Process with a Quality Assurance Provider, a process that includes completing three probationary ratings. New requirements for becoming a Rater include all of these previous requirements and three additional requirements.

RESNET Combustion Safety

RESNET-logoTwo of the new pieces include additional exams covering RESNET combustion safety. First, a Rater Candidate must now pass the RESNET Combustion Safety Written Exam. Preparation for this is now included in the Everblue 2014 RESNET course. We will also include this exam as a part of the class. Additionally, a Rater Candidate must also pass the RESNET Combustion Safety Simulation Exam. We will train you for this exam as well and pay for this exam. However, it is important to know that this exam must be administered after class by a third-party proctor.

Probationary Ratings

The third new requirement for becoming a Rater deals with the probationary ratings. A Rater must still complete three probationary ratings with a QA Provider; however, as of January 4, 2014, all new Raters must have one of their three probationary ratings performed in the presence of a RESNET Quality Assurance Designee (QAD).

Everblue Offers Solutions: Introducing our New RESNET Probationary Rater Workshop

Although these new requirements may seem complicated, our Everblue team has been hard at work to learn the details of these new changes and has updated our RESNET program to account for these new requirements. We have recently introduced a RESNET Probationary Rater Workshop. This two-day experience is aimed at taking someone from one of our RESNET classes and getting them through the RESNET process as easily and quickly as possible. Students will not be doing any testing during these two days, but they will complete two of the three probationary ratings and a third rating as homework. With Everblue training, you can rest assured that we will guide you through this new process and provide support to you every step of the way.
