If your certification as an Energy and Environmental Ratings Alliance (EERA) rater expires this year, you must re-take the exam and submit two additional inspections for review to be re-certified as an EERA rater.

You must also re-certify if you operate through another accredited HERS Provider which uses KBSI as their trainer. 

There are two options for re-certification. You can attend a one-day refresher course and take the exam at KBSI, or you can arrange to take a proctored exam near you.

To be re-certified as an EERA rater, the following requirements must be met:

  • A score of 80 percent or higher on the open book performance exam. While much of the exam will be familiar to KBSI trainees, the new exam is longer and more comprehensive.

  • Satisfactory review of two energy ratings. Evaluation of these ratings is included in your registration fee, regardless of which re-certification option you choose. Ratings must be submitted within two months of the re-certification test date.

Class size:
Attendance is limited to 18, so early registration is advised.

Next scheduled dates:
