RESNET HERS Raters (a Class 1 in Florida)must comply with the new RESNET Combustion Appliance Safety Testing protocols outlined in Chapter 8 of RESNET Standards. Combustion Safety Testing is a requirement for homes with gas appliances participating in the EnergyStar program. Raters certified prior to 12/31/13 have until 12/31/14 to pass the Combustion module. This is a mandatory requirement to maintain certification. At the present, there is a single path to comply RESNET testing requirements for the CAZ and Work Scope certification include a traditional online open book multiple choice exam (25 questions, 2 hours) and a new practical exam. The practical exam is an internet-based 3-D simulation exam.
You will need to register to get access to the simulation tool prior to coming to class. The price of the simulation exam is $199 and includes RESNETís certification fee. This will also allow you access to the simulation trainer prior to the exam. Here is the link to purchase: http://store.resnetcazsimtest.com/.
