Course Description: This course is brought to you jointly by the N.C. Clean Energy Technology Center and Everblue. It is one of eight courses housed under the award-winning Renewable Energy Technologies Diploma Series.This training course teaches the concepts and skills necessary to provide homeowners and home builders a detailed analysis of energy consumption and money-saving energy conservation strategies as well as all the information needed to take the RESNET Rater Certification test. This 5-day course (40 hours), in addition to being taught in live classroom setting allows each student to complete two energy models. On the first model, the student uses a set of building drawings to predict energy performance of a home that is not yet built. On the second model, they apply actual test data gained during field training to build a model of an existing home. Both models can be used to identify the most cost-effective energy improvement options available to a homeowner or home builder. The class includes a thorough review of basic energy concepts, field experience with blower door testing and duct blasting, training on the latest version of rating software, and performing a home energy rating and entering the data into REM/Rate.
