Domestic Energy Assessor (DEA) Training
Elmhurst train and qualify Domestic Energy Assessors (DEAs) to undertake property assessments of existing dwellings. Using a government standard methodology they can calculate the energy performance of a property and produce a legally valid Energy Performance Certificate (EPC).
Elmhurst’s City and Guilds accredited training is a fantastic introduction into the world of energy assessment; providing individuals with the skills and knowledge to produce energy calculations using reduced data Standard Assessment Procedure (RdSAP) methodology- which is a lot easier than it sounds!
Essentially EPCs are required for all existing residential dwellings in the UK before they are sold or let, which is why DEAs are required to produce those important energy calculations for these properties.
Elmhurst's training course provides information at a pace that suits our trainees to ensure they understand the content and are able to gradually build up their skills and knowledge. Our training takes individuals from classroom learning to undertaking practical energy assessments in a matter of days!
The MEES Effect
With the introduction of the Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES) on the 1st April 2018, there has been a significant increase in demand for domestic energy assessors to produce up to date energy certificates for landlords in the private rented sector. You can find out more about MEES and what this means for DEAs here.
Training Course Options
Domestic Energy Assessor Condensed 5 Day
The DEA 5-day course is ideal for new entrants to the industry and property professionals, and has the added bonus of candidates being able to get assistance and guidance with their portfolio whilst on the training course.
This course follows the same format of the 3-day DEA course, with the exception that the last two days will be spent conducting property inspections and building a portfolio of supporting work.
This condensed course allows candidates to complete the course in a shorter time period, owing to the portfolio of work being integrated into the course. Candidates can therefore expect an element of pre-course learning and self-directed evening study, although this does not make up a significant part of the course.
