A DEA qualification course is relatively inexpensive when compared to university courses and similar vocational courses, and are cost-effective in the long run. Whereas other previously mentioned training routes can take years to complete, DEA training takes place in a much shorter time frame with a dedicated course tutor and accreditation scheme to support you make the transition into professional practice.
Anyone selling or renting out their properties must obtain an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) , which means there's plenty of working going around for domestic energy assessors. The recent introduction of Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES) has led to further demand for domestic energy assessors to carry out EPC assessments.
