Domestic Energy Assessor course will provide successful candidates with the necessary qualification to become a Domestic Energy Assessor and issue Domestic Energy Performance Certificates (EPC).
Energy Performance Certificates are required by law as part of the property documents collated by solicitors/conveyance for every home that is constructed, sold or rented, in England & Wales. Since October 2008 it has also become mandatory that landlords provide EPCs for all tenanted properties.
The Green Deal is a UK Government initiative to address the Energy Efficiency of UK building stock. It was introduced in January 2013 and will cover Domestic and Non-Domestic properties, both of which require qualified Green Deal Advisors capable of producing Energy Performance Certificates (EPC, domestic) and creating a Green Deal Assessment Report using approved software, and providing advice to the customer based on this assessment.
The Green Deal will enable many households and businesses to improve the energy efficiency of their properties so less energy is consumed and less money is wasted. The key focus of the new energy company obligation – or “ECO” will be on those householders who cannot achieve significant energy savings without an additional or different measure of support. For example, this includes vulnerable and low-income households and those living in harder to treat properties, such as solid walled properties. A quarter of the UK’s carbon emissions comes from the energy used in homes and a similar amount comes from our businesses, industry and workplaces.
This Course will enable successful candidates to undertake EPC’s (domestic) and Green Deal Assessments.
