Existing Dwellings Energy Assessor (DEA/rdSAP) training

The Energy Performance of Buildings Directive requires all buildings to have an EPC from October 2008. Each year 2.2 million homes are sold, including 200,000 newly constructed dwellings, all of which require an EPC. Anyone, including RSLs, selling or letting a house or flat will need an EPC for each dwelling.

All existing dwellings will require Domestic Energy Assessors, to be trained to undertake the onsite requirements as well as the design based assessment techniques. The cost of an EPC certification for a house is approximately £75-100. If your organisation has stock of 500 units that could cost you as much as £50,000.

Our 3 day training course is very competitively priced at only £2,000. This includes:

- City & Guilds Level 3 Diploma as a DEA (including training materials/manual, buffet lunch, tea and coffee)
- Examination fee and City & Guilds registration (online exam taken at time and place to suit you)

And our training course provides a route to accreditation under an Approved Accreditation Scheme. Download an information pack.

Becoming a Domestic Energy Assessor could save your organisation money on EPC costs and help to improve the energy efficiency of each building, improving its marketability and saving tenants money on fuel bills.
