This qualification is a professional qualification for those who wish to pursue a career as a Domestic Energy Assessor (DEA). Once qualified, DEAs register with an Accreditation Scheme which accredits them to produce Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) for individual existing homes (not newly built). This is in accordance with legislation implementing the EU Directive on the Energy Performance of Buildings. EPCs, energy ratings for homes similar to consumer-friendly ‘fridge ratings’, have been compulsory at the time of let or sale of domestic properties since 2008. EPCs can only be produced by qualified, accredited energy assessors.
Construction students will have the opportunity to work in state of the art workshops, and have access to a real life outdoor construction site. This realistic work environment allows students to gain practical experience in constructing a single story dwelling which is built from foundations up to the roof.
