Non-Domestic Energy Assessor Level 5 (DSM) Training

Elmhurst’s NDEA Level 5 Training ensures that energy assessors have the skills and knowledge to deliver professional energy assessments, and lodge Energy Performance Certificates for commercial buildings in England and Wales using Dynamic Simulation Modelling (DSM). 

Level 5 commercial buildings are typically the most complex buildings to produce energy assessments for. A Level 5 non-domestic property can be identified from specific features such as atriums, automatic blind control and ventilation with enhanced thermal coupling. A larger commercial building with a complex structure, such as a shopping centre or a skyscraper, will require a Level 5 Energy Performance Certificate (EPC).

Training Options 

Elmhurst has partnered with leading DSM software provider DesignBuilder to provide courses, recommended for Level 4 Non-Domestic Energy Assessors. Previous experience with DesignBuilder's software interface (SBEM or DSM) will determine which training course is right for you: 

Please note: Existing assessors familiar with DSM or SBEM, and non-accredited assessors producing Building Regulations compliance documents are welcome to attend the software training days with DesignBuilder.

However, if you are looking to become accredited as a Level 5 Non-Domestic Energy Assessor with Elmhurst, please be aware that we are only accepting individuals qualified as a Level 4 Non-Domestic Energy Assessor, as a minimum, onto our scheme.
