Training courses in Scotland and Northern Ireland
Elmhurst Energy serves a significant and growing community of energy assessors both in Scotland and Northern Ireland. We have been delivering regional training for some time and our recent customer survey suggests that there is an appetite for even more of this in these communities. As a result we have scheduled three new celtic energy assessor courses. Two taking place in the Maldron Hotel in Belfast, Northern Ireland and one in Scotland’s capital, The Capital Hotel in Edinburgh.
On Construction Domestic Energy Assessor (OCDEA) training at the Maldron Hotel in Belfast on Monday 18th May.
The ABBE OCDEA course will run for four days, alongside an APEL course for the last two days. An OCDEA undertakes energy calculations on newly constructed dwellings to produce Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs). All newly constructed domestic dwellings in the UK require an EPC before they are sold or let. The course covers all skills required and SAP methodology to enable delegates to become an OCDEA. See further course details or the APEL route is available for experienced practitioners.
Thermal Bridging CPD at the Maldron Hotel in Belfast on Friday 22nd May.
This day will see two sessions of the popular Thermal Bridging CPD course take place. Delegates will be awarded three hours of CPD for attending either of these sessions. The course aims to improve assessors’ knowledge and confidence in calculating Thermal Bridging in SAP assessments. Topics covered include:
- An explanation of the terminology used
- A look at some of the most common Thermal Bridging schemes available
- A detailed look at each of the 42 thermal bridges in SAP 2012
- How to deal with common scenarios in dwellings such as rooms in the roof
- A guide through entering Thermal Bridging into Design SAP software
- Practical workshops measuring Thermal Bridging in dwellings and entry into Design SAP software.
Non Domestic Energy Assessor (NDEA) Training at the Capital Hotel, Edinburgh from Monday 1st June.
The course will consist of the level 3/4 course for all five days, with the level 3 course running alongside it for the first four days. An NDEA undertakes energy calculations on non domestic buildings to produce an Energy Performance Certificate. The Level 3 qualification allows assessors to complete EPCs on all buildings with more frequently occurring characteristics with less complex HVAC (heating ventilation and air conditioning) systems and the Level 4 qualification covers buildings with more complex HVAC systems and also allows the assessor to produce non domestic new build compliance EPCs.
