Elmhurst’s ABBE, City & Guilds and APEL qualification courses provides a fantastic opportunity for those either completely new or familiar with the world of energy assessment, to become a fully qualified Non-Domestic Energy Assessor (NDEA).
Commercial buildings in the UK require Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) on construction, 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).
Elmhurst provides three different training routes for those interested in becoming a Non-Domestic Energy Assessor, two are provided for new entrants and one for experienced practitioners. Those who complete the Level 3 and 4 qualification or APEL route will be qualified to deliver energy assessments for both existing (level 3) and new build (level 4) commercial buildings.

Elmhurst has been operating for over 25 years, and during this time our experienced and qualified trainers have undertaken training for thousands of individuals. As the UK’s largest accreditation scheme for Non-Domestic Energy Assessors, we have the expertise and the knowledge to help you thrive and grow within this exciting career.
Our role as one of the UK’s approved NDEA accreditation schemes means that we are able to provide continued support to those who join our accreditation scheme (free of charge), long after the training. This is something which independent training providers are unable to provide.
Elmhurst’s NDEA courses have been developed to provide information at a pace that suits all of our trainees, regardless of whether they are new to the industry or are more experienced. We ensure that everyone understands the content and are able to gradually build up their skills and knowledge.
The role of the NDEA is predominantly site based and involves the collection of commercial property data concerning constructions, glazing, heating, ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) and lighting. They will collect and enter this data into approved SBEM software which is used to calculate the energy performance of the property and produce an EPC.
No previous experience or qualifications are required for individuals to qualify as a NDEA, which makes starting a new career in this area relatively easy. NDEAs can choose to work for an existing company or become self-employed, where they can manage their own workloads.
The role of the Energy Assessor is becoming increasingly popular as the UK government aims to improve the energy efficiency of existing homes in pursuit of its net zero carbon by 2050 target.
Regulations such as Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES) in the private rental sector has also increased the demand for the services of Non-Domestic Energy Assessors in England and Wales as landlords and property agents take action to determine if their properties are up to scratch.
Once qualified as a NDEA, you will be eligible to join Elmhurst’s industry leading accreditation scheme, free of charge. If you are looking for a scheme which offers competitive lodgement fees, market leading software, professional technical support, opportunities to enhance your skills, as well as the tools to build a competitive business, then Elmhurst Energy is the accreditation scheme for you.
