USERA HERS Provider Update
November 1, 2014
OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: USERA Certification Courses

USERA was certified by the California Energy Commission on July 23, 2014 to offer a professional registry for compliance document registrations in prescriptive alterations and to continue our industry leading training for the 2013 code changes established by the CEC.

Be prepared for the new code. ALL USERA raters must be certified for the new 2013 CEC code in order to register certified documents for any permit pulled after July 1. USERA is providing an easy way for our raters to smoothly continue their operations without any hiccups as they enter this new phase: A simple one day class.

We are offering two dates in which you can take your re-certification class. On November 22nd the class will be in Redlands and on December - the 13th in Pleasant Hill. Classes will involve six hours of comprehensive training from leading working professionals in the industry. The class fee is only $325 and includes all class materials. Sign up is easy. Go to the payment tab on this website and enter your name in the Business Name field, UPDATERED for the Redlands class in the invoice field, UPDATEPH for the Pleasant Hill class. Enter $325 in the Amount field and hit enter to go to our secure PayPal page.

What if you are not a USERA rater, but would like to become one? Raters currently certified under the 2008 code with another provider can easily become co-certified with USERA by taking this class. If you have already become re-certified for the 2013 code all you need to do is pass our challenge test and you will be co-certified with USERA!

Challenge tests are $99 and will take place on the same dates/locations as the update classes. To sign up for the challenge test go to the payment tab and enter your name in the Business Name field, CHALLENGERED in the Invoice field for Redlands, CHALLENGEPH for Pleasant Hill. Enter $99 in the Amount field and hit enter to go to our secure PayPal page. Once you’ve signed up for an Update Class or a Challenge Exam, you will be sent materials that will prepare you for your session. We look forward to meeting you in person.
