All domestic properties put up for either sale or rent within the U.K. require an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC). The EPC provides potential tenants/home-owners with information regarding the energy performance of the building, as well as providing cost-effective recommendations for reducing household energy bills.
EPCs can only be completed by qualified and accredited domestic energy assessors. The assessor is required to survey properties and obtain information relating to the following aspects of the building: construction type, property form, building dimensions and heating/hot water systems. Assessors then enter this info into a recognised software program which will analyse the information and produce a certificate which rates the building’s energy performance.
Course Fee includes –
- Workbooks & Portfolio manuals
- Registration, Exam & Certification
- Access to online information portals
- Registration with ECMK or STROMA software
- Lunch & Refreshments daily
Previous experience in building performance management or relevant occupational experience.
In order to be able to complete EPCs, candidates need to complete a L3 Diploma in Domestic Energy Assessment (DEA L3). The qualification is comprised of a mix of classroom and distance learning elements, and will ensure that trainees have complied with each of the elements of the National Occupation Standards (NOS) for Domestic Energy Assessment. The five units that candidates are required to demonstrate their competence in are:
