Event Description:

USGBC LEED® for Homes™ Green Rater Training

LEED for Homes Growth

There are currently over 75,000 registered LEED® for Homes™ projects nationwide, and each project requires third-party on-site verification and performance testing by a LEED Green Rater. If you’re interested in filling this need as part of USGBC’s LEED for Homes Green Rater program, this training is for you! The two-part LEED for Homes Green Rater Training is designed to prepare qualified participants to provide verification services on LEED for Homes projects.

Applicants must meet/submit initial qualifications and complete a two-part training (this two-day workshop and an online course component). Following the training, participants will take a computer-based exam provided by the Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI) and complete a mentorship on real projects before earning the LEED for Homes Green Rater Certificate.  Must register by Jul 23, 2013.

Learning Objectives

  • Identify responsibilities of a LEED for Homes Green Rater in each phase of a project
  • Manage and conduct verification activities
  • Effectively use the project checklist file
  • Communicate effectively with project teams and LEED for Homes Providers
  • Apply the sampling protocol on applicable projects
  • Prepare accurate and complete certification submittal packages


This training is intended for professionals with a minimum of three years’ experience in the residential construction industry and basic residential green building knowledge who are interested in providing verification services on  LEED for Homes projects. Those with a background in on-site verification and/or energy rating are particularly qualified.
