Course Description

NDEA combined level 3 & 4 City & Guilds CEA training What is a Commercial Energy Assessor? Since October 2008 there has been a legal requirement for all commercial properties when constructed, leased, or sold to have an accompanying commercial Energy Performance Certificate. Due to the substantial number of commercial premises across the country there is currently a large requirement for qualified commercial energy assessors. Only level 3 or level 4 qualified Non Domestic Energy Assessors (NDEA) , more commonly known as commercial energy assessors, can undertake this work. The new YourHIPSearch combined level 3 & 4 Commercial Energy Assessor training course will equip you will the skills to service this market. Working closely with commercial letting and sales agents, construction companies, business transfer agents and facility managers; the role of a Commercial Energy Assessor will be to survey the commercial premises and collate data incorporating elements such as heating, lighting, and construction type. Utilizing a nationally recognised software system interfaced with SBEM calculations, assessors will input data to generate the Non Domestic Energy Certificate. Why is this a fast track course? City & Guilds require candidates to undertake a number of simulated commercial property assessments. The trainers help you to complete these required EPC assessments during your training by taking you to live commercial properties and then returning to the classroom to input the data. We also organise your exam for the 5th day of the course with immediate results. This reduces the qualification time dramatically as there is only a small amount of paper work required for you to submit once the course has completed. There is no need for you to return for exams, and full qualification can be obtained in as little as 3 weeks. Most training providers will ask you to return in a month or so for your exam and usually will not provide live property assessments during the training. All the trainers are experts in energy conservation and energy related training and will ensure you receive the highest standard of training and support. Why train to level 4? Because level 3 assessors can only service approximately 60% of the commercial property market! This means that you could miss out on up to 40% of the commercial energy assessor work available. CEAs qualified at level 3 are only able to undertake EPCs on basic existing non-dwellings, which have frequently occurring characteristics that can be modeled using the Simplified Building Energy Model (SBEM). Commonly occurring characteristics include simple heating systems (less than 100kw), natural ventilation and small (non-complex) cooling systems (less than 12kw). The restricts Level 3 assessors to site-based energy assessment, usually on smaller less-lucrative premises, and does not include assessment of new-build properties from plans or design specification. Candidates at level 4 can undertake assessments on virtually all commercial premises, including assessment of new-build properties from plans or design specification, which will ensure that you can offer a comprehensive service for all prospective clients. Who is this Commercial Energy Assessor training for? Level 3 and 4 commercial energy training is available to anyone including non-experienced people who wish to work in the energy consultancy industry. It is advised that applying candidates are comfortable with computer data input and it is an advantage if you have a small amount of knowledge on construction related topics. The course will be of particular interest to surveyors, builders, service engineers, heating and electrical engineers and commercial property managers. Domestic Energy Assessors or new entrants may also want to to hold this qualification. Following the CEA training, qualified level 3 and 4 NDEA assessors can energy rate commercial buildings only.
