This training is an all inclusive energy auditor training with emphasis on new residential construction and the HERS Rating process. It will teach you how to evaluate the energy performance, comfort, and safety of a house through whole house diagnostic procedures. You will learn how to use the diagnostic tools to find and correct problems in the building’s thermal envelope. This training incorporates information about how the Energy Star New Homes Program is operated both nationally and in the four Northwest States.
