Fill in the form to the right to get the EVER application packet, which includes testimonials from raters. It also contains the EVER rater manual, all the forms you need to get started, the fee schedule, and more.
To get a taste of the kind of support you'll get as an EVER rater, here's a sample of the EVER Insight column that all EVER raters receive each week.
If you're interested in becoming a certified home energy rater but have not gone through a rater training program yet, download the document "What and How of Becoming a Rater" from the RESNET home page and read our page on the HERS rater training course we're putting together.
With all the emphasis on weatherization and energy efficiency at the national level now, especially with the Home Star program on the way, it's a great time to be in the home energy rating industry!
