New Build Energy Assessor Course to Meet New Legislation

Reading, United Kingdom, June 04, 2008 --( Energy Assessor College (Reading and Birmingham) is offering applicants the opportunity to qualify as a New Build Energy Assessor.

The New Build Energy Assessor Course, one of the first of its kind in the UK, leads to the On Construction Domestic Energy Assessor Diploma (ABBE OnCon DEA) from ABBE, the body appointed by the Government to oversee the awarding of certification.

Classroom and home-based study
Candidates complete training and exams at the Energy Assessor College in Reading or Birmingham, as well as studying and producing a portfolio of evidence, which is a requirement of the ABBE qualification.

Successful completion of the course and diploma opens the door to a new career as a New Build Energy Assessor, working on a self-employed basis issuing Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) for the new housing sector.

Increased demand for energy assessors
New legislation that came into effect on 6 April 2008 requires every newly constructed home to have an EPC before it can go on the market.

Issuing these EPCs requires the services of a qualified New Build Energy Assessor, and at current rates of 185,000 new homes every year, and the Government’s request for an additional 35,000 per year until 2020, these qualified professionals will be in high demand.

The Energy Assessor College is providing this course in anticipation of this demand and has tailored training to fit the needs of anyone seeking a new career direction or add Energy Assessments to their current service.

Each course module is booked separately and with much of the work produced from home (reviewed by a qualified Energy Assessor) the course can be taken around existing work or lifestyle commitments.

Also on offer from the Energy Assessor College, in Reading and Birmingham, are Multi-Skilled, Commercial and Domestic Energy Assessor courses.
