Quidos CPD Series: Legislation
This Quidos CPD Series: Legislation offers a crucial analysis of the Minimum Energy Efficiency Requirements for domestic & non domestic buildings which came into effect in April 2018, thorough clarification of the differences between SAP and RdSAP and an introductory overview of the Section 63 regulations that were introduced in Scotland on September 1st 2016.
Chapter one: Domestic MEES (118848)
These standards will impact upon the vast majority of domestic buildings which are rented out, and should have an impact upon work opportunities for domestic energy assessors with the increased potential workload.
This chapter looks in detail at the background to the standards, as well as addressing the vital details of the legislation and which types of building and tenancy will be impacted. The chapter also looks through which buildings will be exempt from the minimum standards, as well as exploring what the enforcement process will be for those who do not comply. This chapter is essential reading for any energy assessors so they can stay one step ahead of the curve.
Chapter two: Non-Domestic MEES (117592)
These standards will impact upon the vast majority of non-domestic buildings which are rented out, and should have a large impact upon work opportunities for non-domestic energy assessors with the increased workload.
This chapter looks in detail at the background to the standards, as well as looking through the details of the legislation and which types of building and tenancy will be impacted.
The module also looks through which buildings will be exempt from the minimum standards, as well as exploring what the enforcement process will be for those who do not comply.
Chapter three: Sap or RdSAP (115848)
This chapter outlines when the different calculation methods should be used to calculate the efficiency of a domestic dwelling. This is an important ongoing issue for assessors with many DEAs incorrectly completing RdSAP assessments on buildings that require SAP reports.
This chapter examines the vital differences between SAP and RdSAP, as well as looking at what the specific requirements for a SAP report are.
The chapter then concludes by looking at how to determine whether a SAP or RdSAP report is required, whilst also examining the circumstances where it would be acceptable to complete a SAP assessment on a new build.
Chapter four: Section 63 (115482)
These regulations place mandatory requirements on owners of buildings greater than 1000m2 to improve upon the energy efficiency and carbon emissions of their buildings by either implementing a set of improvement measures or annually reporting upon energy consumption.
The legislation therefore provides an excellent opportunity for non-domestic energy assessors with a background in building construction and services to increase the service which they can provide to their clients.
This module will look in detail at what is involved with Section 63, why the legislation has been introduced, what work will be involved in creating a ‘Action Plan’, and which individuals will qualify to operate as section 63 Advisors.
By taking this module you will be left with a full understanding of what will be involved in the launch of Section 63 this year and be in a position to explain the upcoming legislation to your affected clients.
Completion of the Quidos CPD Series: Legislation can be used to provide 2.5 hour’s worth of CPD towards an assessor’s annual requirement. The Quidos CPD Series: Legislation is comprised of a series of presentations followed up by short multiple choice quizzes, which assessors will need to pass in order to obtain the certificate for the CPD.
Upon completion of the Quidos CPD Series: Legislation and successful undertaking of the quizzes, a copy of the certificate will be provided to the assessors via the Quidos Training team
