The Energy Performance of Buildings Directive requires all buildings to have an EPC from October 2008.We estimate that EPCs will be required for approximately 220,000 buildings (non-dwellings) per annum.

All of these buildings will require Commercial Buildings Energy Assessors to be trained to undertake the onsite requirements as well as the design based assessment techniques. Our 4-day training course is very competitively priced at only £1,750 + VAT. This includes training to ABBE Level 3 Diploma. ABBE exam fee and Certification is £285 + VAT.

All level 3 assessors can then undertake 2 top up days for level 4.  Level 4 assessors will be qualified to undertake assessments of newly constructed and existing non dwellings (that can be modelled on SBEM).  Level 4 assessors may also be competent to oversee a team of specialist surveyors that on their behalf may undertake site surveys, (although the assessor will take responsibility for the completed energy assessment).  £750 + VAT; exam £400 + VAT.
