Course Details


Domestic Energy Assessor - Virtual Classroom (DEA)

Course Title: Level 3 Certificate in Domestic Energy Assessment

Awarding Body: ABBE

This course will be delivered via live video conferencing over two consecutive days with a live tutor with interactive case studies and the facility to ask questions in real time - just as if you were sat in the classroom!

This two day virtual classroom based course, plus coursework assignments, will give you the skills required to survey buildings and produce accurate Energy Performance Certificates for domestic dwellings. These EPC's are required to be produced by law when a property is sold or let. EPC's are also required for certain aspects of various Government grant schemes such as ECO.

April 2018 saw the introduction of the Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES) in England & Wales which makes it illegal for private landlords to rent out any properties which have an EPC rating worse than an E. This has been extended to existing private tenants since April 2020.

Once the two days are complete, students will be required to complete a portfolio of 5 example EPCs along with other electronic academic assignments. Full portfolio guidance will be provided during the training sessions and each student will be assigned a personal tutor to help guide you through the process via email and telephone support.

Once qualified, candidates can become accredited for FREE with any of the UKs approved accreditation schemes.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is the difference between the DEA 5 Day Course and the DEA Online Courses?

A: The qualification, registration and portfolio requirements are all exactly the same. The difference is that any candidates opting for the attendance course will complete the portfolio requirements whilst in attendance, whereas if you opt for one of our webinar courses, you will complete some courseworks assignments remotely after the webinar has concluded.

Q: Are then any hidden or extra costs?

A: The price you see advertised includes everything you need to achieve the qualification. This includes the ABBE registration fee, all training and course materials, unlimited portfolio attempts and your final Certificate.

Q: What happens after I am qualified?

A: Once qualified you will need to become a member of an approved accreditation body. Most of them are free to join and charge a lodgement fee each time you produce and register an EPC. This cost is approximately £5.00 + VAT per certificate.

Q: Do Energy Trust offer student finance?

A: Yes, we offer finance through a third party provider. Please contact us on 0333 012 0002 if you wish to explore financing one of our qualifications.
