Certified HERS Rating Field Inspector (RFI) Training

Begin your Home Energy Rating career by training to become a RESNET Certified Rating Field Inspector!

Certified HERS Rating Field Inspector

With the increased popularity of home energy efficiency programs and more states adopting stringent energy codes that require third-party testing, the demand for RFI’s is growing.

RFI certification is the first step in becoming a part of the home energy rating industry, and RFIs must work under the direct supervision of a RESNET Certified Home Energy Rater. A RFI is certified to conduct the inspections and necessary basic performance tests (Building Envelope/Blower Door and Duct Leakage tests) and collect the data to produce the home energy rating. This certification requires the ability to identify and quantify various building components, systems, data collection, and interpretation.
