How to become a commercial energy assessor
You can get into this job through specialist courses run by private training organisations.
If you have no previous experience of commercial energy assessing you'll need to do one or both of the following:
- Level 3 Diploma in Non-Domestic Energy Assessments
- Level 4 Diploma in Commercial Energy Assessments
With a Level 3 diploma, you can carry out assessments on existing buildings.
With a Level 4 diploma, you can carry out assessments on new and existing commercial buildings.
If you have relevant experience from related roles or industries like surveying, construction or engineering, you may be able to do a fast-track course or have your previous experience accredited.
The government provides further information and a register of commercial energy assessors.
