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.
To do this they visit properties and collect property information which is entered into approved Reduced data Standard Assessment Procedure (RdSAP) software in order to calculate the energy performance of the property.
This course is suited to new entrants with no previous energy assessment experience. Although this course is predominantly online, there are parts where you will need to go and find information and carry out test EPC’s away from the course in your own time.

Summary of Outcomes
DEA, Trainer, Energy Advisor, Retrofit Assessor
This five day course covers the skills required and SAP methodology to enable the candidate to become an On Construction Domestic Energy Assessor.
Following the course, the delegate is required to complete a portfolio of work including Centre devised test cases to meet the requirements of the ABBE OCDEA qualification.
Upon successful completion of the assessment portfolio individuals are classed as qualified. Once qualified you are eligible to join Elmhurst’s government approved accreditation scheme free of charge.
Unlike some other independent training providers, members who go on to join Elmhurst’s DEA accreditation scheme are fully supported long after the course is finished- we won’t leave you feeling high and dry.
Only individuals who are registered with an accreditation scheme are able to produce legally valid EPCs.
