Level 3 Award in Domestic Energy Assessment (Part-Time)

Course Overview

All residential properties in the UK require an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) before being marketed for sale or let. A Domestic Energy Assessor (DEA) is a qualified individual who can undertake energy calculations for residential properties in order to generate these EPCs.

This course is designed to provide individuals with the skills and knowledge required to assess and evaluate the energy performance of existing domestic buildings. It focuses on assessing the energy efficiency and sustainability aspects of residential properties and identifying opportunities for improvement.

Upon completion of this course, individuals will be equipped with the necessary skills to conduct comprehensive assessments of residential buildings, provide recommendations for energy efficiency improvements, and contribute to the overall sustainability goals of domestic retrofit projects.
