Non-Domestic Energy Assessor Training
Commercial Buildings in the UK require Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) before being sold or let. As an Elmhurst trained Non-Domestic Energy Assessor (NDEA) you will be well equipped to undertake energy calculations on these commercial buildings, using approved Simplified Building Energy Model (SBEM).
Established in 1993 and operating across the UK, Elmhurst Energy are recognised for driving standards of excellence in energy assessment. This starts with the high quality training and CPD that we provide.
A commercial/non-domestic building is typically more complex then your average run of the mill residential property, however Elmhurst's professional Non-Domestic Training focuses on making the complex, simple, though clarity of communication and support from our expert trainers.
Elmhurst's Non-Domestic Energy Assessor Training covers everything from processing data into SBEM software to understanding of Building Regulations/Standards and Building Services. We also provide a number of training options depending on the level of service you wish to provide and your previous industry experience.
Elmhurst’s NDEA training options include the Level 3 and Level 4 qualification. The level 3 qualification allows assessors to complete EPCs on all existing commercial buildings with frequently occurring characteristics- this covers a large proportion of the non-domestic market.
The level 4 NDEA qualification allow assessors to produce EPCs on existing commercial buildings without frequently occurring characteristics, including commercial on construction EPCs.
NDEA Level 3 and Level 4
We offer a 5 day course for ‘new entrants’ to qualify as an NDEA level 4. This includes level 3 buildings. The City & Guilds Level 4 Diploma in Non Domestic Energy Assessment (QCF) course includes:

NDEA- Experienced Practitioner Route (APEL)
This is a two day training course for professionals that wish to be certified as an APEL Level 4 NDEA assessor.
This training is designed for those individuals who have non-domestic buildings experience relevant to the energy assessment industry and, who are able to document their involvement and experience of working in this field for at least two of the last five years by way of a competency mapping exercise.
Candidates must demonstrate that they meet the necessary skills, knowledge and understanding as defined by the National Occupational Standards (NOS) by completing an application form & being mapped against the standards. They will be expected to be familiar with Building Regulations, construction methods, HVAC and lighting systems related to non-domestic properties and understand architects’ plans.
Successful completion of this course and all assessments qualifies candidates to assess both level 3 and 4 existing buildings and produce Level 4 non-domestic new-build calculations.
