Event Details

TRAINER: John Bergman and Corbett Lunsford of Green Dream Group

This 1-day course is designed by the IL Assoc. of Energy Raters (IAER) to introduce the skills necessary to become a Duct and Envelope Tightness (DET) Verifier, certified to perform the diagnostic testing required for new homes by the 2012 IL Energy Code.  If you've been thinking about getting BPI or HERS Certified but can't yet make the investment, this DET Verifier certification can be your bridge into offering home performance testing services.

After successful completion of this course, you will be able to test the leakage of a building envelope and duct system, and evaluate the results as measured against Illinois code requirements. Specific topics include:
-Protocols for blower door and duct leakage testing
-Calculations for ACH50 and percent duct leakage
-Tips for successfully completing the written and in-field DET Verifier certification exams (must pass with a 75% on both written and field exams)

This Training Includes:
-DET Verifier Training Workbook
-Written DET Verifier exam
-In-field DET Verifier exam
-Certificate of course completion

Students must bring a calculator for the field and written exam. Class size limited to 16.
