ABBE Certificate in Domestic Energy Assessment Level 3
In a nutshell
This is a professional qualification for those who wish to pursue a career as a Domestic Energy Assessor (DEA). Once qualified, DEAs register with an Accreditation Scheme which accredits them to produce Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) for individual existing homes (not newly built). This is in accordance with legislation implementing the EU Directive on the Energy Performance of Buildings.
The qualifications that ABBE offer are suitable for preparing to work in a sector, for starting your career and/or for professional development. ABBE works directly with training centres and employers to develop bespoke qualifications to meet the specific needs of their learners and employees.
This course is available as part of a Personal Learning Account (PLA). PLA is an initiative from the Welsh Government which offers people the chance to access free, part-time courses with flexible and convenient learning that fits around their existing lifestyle (subject to eligibility).
This course is for...
... anyone aged 19+, living in Wales, in employment. The usual salary limit of £30,596 does not apply to this course.
... new entrants to the sector seeking to begin a career in energy assessment but also for those with experience in property inspection or surveying wishing to gain a qualification in energy assessment.
This qualification has been designed to encourage participation in education and training in other related areas by:
- Establishing a framework of education and training for prospective DEAs
- Enabling learners with expertise in other housing areas to qualify as DEAs
- Enabling learners from outside this industry to qualify as DEAs
To achieve this qualification, learners must achieve the four mandatory units:
- Conduct energy assessments in a safe, effective and professional manner
