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/conveyancers 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.
While the Government has scrapped the need for home Information packs (HIPs), the requirement for an EPC is still in place and these must be issued by a suitably qualified and registered domestic energy assessor.

Do I have to produce a portfolio?
All learners produce a portfolio of evidence that they have acquired the required knowledge and have carried out 5 inspections to the standard. The external verifier from City & Guilds checks this before they will issue certificates.
No previous qualifications or experience is required; however you must have basic computer skills as all assessors must input data into a software program in order to produce the energy performance certificate.
If there are multiple people wanting to carry out the course, we may be able to put the course on in different locations.
