Commercial energy assessor training (NDEA) Level 3&4 / 5 Day
(Course title: 6361-04 Level 4 diploma in non-domestic energy assessment)
This course will enable you to qualify as a Level 3 and Level 4 commercial energy assessor. It makes sense to qualify to up to level 4 as this will give you access to all commercial buildings requiring EPCs.
This course is designed for new entrants with no previous experience necessary.
There is no exam; however you will be expected to produce a portfolio of 5 sample surveys to demonstrate your competence. We will supply you with two of these buildings during the course. The commercial energy assessor role is challenging yet satisfying as you will be inspecting many varied buildings and producing energy performance certificates in a professional environment.
Green Deal advisors will need to be qualified NDEAs. The progress is totally up to the learner but can be completed in less than 2 weeks and we will help progress learners to achieve their goals.
The cost of the course includes training, assessment, the certification fee and all course material, along with refreshments throughout the day.
