The Residential Energy Services Network (RESNET) has entered into a new partnership with the Energy & Environmental Building Alliance (EEBA) to align future educational and training opportunities for members of both organizations.

RESNET recognizes EEBA as a Preferred Education Partner, a program that allows both organizations to more efficiently and effectively serve the educational needs of the building science and HERS communities.

"RESNET and EEBA share a common goal to grow the industry with well-educated energy professionals who are up-to-date on the latest trends and technologies," RESNET Executive Director Steve Baden said. "That is why we are excited for this partnership to improve access for RESNET raters to EEBA’s high-quality nationally recognized training."

As partners, RESNET may recognize EEBA courses for Professional Development Credits and CEU credits for RESNET Raters, Rating Field Inspectors, Quality Assurance Designees and Rater Trainers, including the following EEBA training courses:

  • Houses That Work
  • Taking the Performance Path: The ERI/HERS Index for Designers and Builders
  • High Performance Mechanical Systems for Houses that Work

In addition, the two organizations will support each other's annual conferences and regional training events.
