Level 3 Certificate in Domestic Energy Assessment (5 Days)

Domestic Energy Assessor (DEA) L3
Those that are interested in completing Energy Performance Certificates (EPC’s) should consider taking the DEA courses with NETS, we are one of the industry leaders and have qualified well over 600 DEA’s over the last 4 years. We are currently running the revised City & Guild 6361-01 Level 3 Certificate in Domestic Energy Assessment (This incorporates the 9.91 up skill test).

This newly updated and revised training course benefits from having access to various local properties so that a training EPC and Live EPC can be undertaken by the candidate Domestic Energy Assessor, real hands on experience is essential to fully understand the complexities of undertaking an EPC. Our DEA courses also benefit from added value aspects related to marketing and a major element that is often forgotten by other training organisations is the audit process that is undertaken by the accreditation bodies after the candidate is qualified.

Our 5-day classroom and site based course will give you the skills required to survey buildings and produce accurate Energy Performance Certificates (EPC’s) for domestic dwellings. EPC’s are required to be produced by law when a property is Sold, Let, and as part of the governments Green Deal and ECO schemes. EPC’s are also required for all Solar PV installations under the Feed-in-Tariff (FIT) scheme and Biomass/Air Source/Ground Source Installations for the Renewable Heating Incentive (RHI)

During the course candidates will complete 5 Live EPC surveys – giving the learner a real learning experience via hands-on practical experience.

As part of the qualification candidates are required to complete a Portfolio of course work. This Portfolio will be fully completed during the 5-day course.

After 5 Days everything is complete and signed off!
