2-Day Class: June 28-29, 2017 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.


The Home Energy Score is a great way to enhance your inspection business by adding a DOE-supported service to your offerings. Developed by the U.S. Department of Energy, a Home Energy Score helps homeowners better understand their home's energy use and how to save on their utility bills. This live two-day class will expedite the process for you to become a Department of Energy-approved Home Energy Score Assessor.

The two-day class will take you through the simulation training and exam. The third day is reserved for optional mentoring with Joe Hall to fulfill that requirement. You can sign up for mentoring time slots on the first day of the class.


The class will be held at the InterNACHI School inside InterNACHI Headquarters, located in Boulder, Colorado. Students will also be able to tour the House of Horrors®, a full-size house with a thousand defects built in.

Your expert instructor, Joe Hall, will take you through the classroom, 3D simulation and hands-on training. Most students should be done testing by the end of class and be ready for mentoring.

This class will provide you with:

  • immediate feedback and help on the simulation exams;
  • group mentoring: You will have the opportunity to complete your mentoring requirement directly following the course at the reduced rate of $150 (down from $200);
  • marketing strategies to help you promote this ancillary service to your clients;
  • a free six-month membership in InterNACHI (for non-members);
  • free lunch each day!

HES Instructor Joe Hall


You must be an InterNACHI® Home Energy Inspector to take this class.

Computer Requirements:

You must bring with you a PC or Mac laptop and charger with a minimum 64-bit processor and an operating system that can run the Firefox, Chrome, Edge, or Safari browser, with cookies and plug-ins enabled. The 3D simulation is resource-intensive, so you’ll be running only that program during class time.

Location of the InterNACHI School:

InterNACHI Headquarters, the InterNACHI School, and the House of Horrors® are at 4635 Nautilus Court S, Boulder CO 80301, which is about 50 minutes away from Denver International Airport.
