Level 4 Award in U-Value Calculation (QCF)

U-Value L4
Every newly built domestic dwelling in the UK requires an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) before being sold or let. As an On Construction Domestic Energy Assessor (OCDEA) you will have the skills and knowledge to complete energy calculations using Standard Assessment Procedure (SAP) software to produce a new build EPC.

As part of the process of building new homes your architect will need to understand U-Values and how using the right materials and products effect the insulation properties and outcomes related to building sustainability building that meet new regulatory ratings.

You will be given the appropriate tools and preparation to produce accurate energy assessments for these newly built properties which sometimes can be off plans. You will need to register with a professional accreditation body where you will be fully supported.
