EnergyGauge Rater Training Class 3
Purpose of Certified Rater Training Courses:
The Florida Energy Gauge Program - formerly called the Building Energy-Efficiency Rating System - was created by the 1993 Florida Building Energy-Efficiency Rating Act, which established a voluntary statewide energy-efficiency rating system for residential buildings.
The purpose of the Act is to provide home buyers with a marketplace yardstick that measures the benefits of energy-efficient improvements. The rating system provides unambiguous and specific information on how much energy the home is expected to use. The rating system is built upon the platform provided by the statewide energy code.
The Ratings provide overall estimates for the home's annual energy cost in dollars and energy, and a rating for the home in relation to the most- and least-efficient homes of its size in the state.
Ratings can be conducted only by State-Certified Raters. These courses provide the training and testing required to become a Certified Class 3, 2 or 1 residential Rater.
- Class 3 Raters can rate new buildings only.
- Class 2 Raters can rate new or existing buildings using site audit data.
- Class 1 Raters can rate new or existing buildings using both site data and actual field performance tests of the building's energy efficiency.
Note: Class 2 Raters must be certified for Class 3 as well as Class 2, and Class 1 Raters must be certified for all three classes.
Registration begins at 8:00 am and class starts at 8:30 am. Lunch is provided.
