Tacoma Energy is a RESNET Accredited Training Provider conducting home energy rater certification training. We offer advanced rater training and business development classes for raters. We focus on taking the in-class curriculum and apply it to on the job training. Each student will have "hands on" experience working with the blower door and duct blaster, as well as, identifying air leakage possibilities. Back in the classroom students will receive training on how to use the REM/Rate Software which is needed to qualify homes for Energy Star status.
Tacoma Energy's Building Performance Institute (BPI) courses cover the basic principles of building science to identify energy efficiency in a home while also monitoring conditions that have a direct impact on health and safety. BPI Standards emphasize the "whole house" approach to inspecting a home, meaning that all systems are interconnected from the HVAC equipment, to the envelope, the foundation, walls, roof, doors and windows. We will give you hands on experience performing diagnostic testing with equipment such as the blower door and the combustion analyzer to ensure systems are functioning together correctly to maximize home performance, comfort, energy efficiency, safety and durability.
We have training courses available in accordance with RESNET/HERS and BPI standards. If you are looking to change careers, or to improve your knowledge base then join us for one of our classes. We provide in the field training to broaden your classroom education, and will prepare you for the examinations.

We are proud to provide rating services to qualify new homes for the ENERGY STAR® label.
ENERGY STAR® qualified new homes are substantially more energy efficient than homes built to the minimum code
requirements. Even in states with more rigorous energy codes, the U.S. EPA ensures that ENERGY STAR® remains
the symbol for truly energy-efficient performance. These homes are good for businesses, consumers, and the environment.
