Domestic Energy Assessor Training (DEA) | City & Guilds 6361 Level 3 Training Course Overview: 

Over 1 Million homes go on the housing market each year, all require an Energy Performance Certificates. Only accredited and suitably qualified Domestic Energy Assessors (and existing Home Inspectors) will be allowed to carry out the Energy Assessment. All rental properties with a new tenancy, along with sold houses in England and Wales will also require an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC).

It is the role of the DEA to collect data on the dimensions, construction, heating and hot water provision of a property. They then enter the information into an approved software programme. This, in turn, will produce the EPC. The first part of the certificate is a benchmarked measure of the home's energy performance on a scale A to G, where A is very efficient and G is at the other end of the spectrum.

The second part of the EPC is to produce cost effective recommendations for improving the energy performance of the home. Information on renewable energy and recommendations on energy efficient behaviour are also aspects. It is the role of the Domestic Energy Assessor to interpret whether these are practical for his/her client.

What is an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC)?

The Energy Performance Certificate will look broadly similar to a certificate on a refrigerator. Its purpose is to record, in a clear unambiguous format, how energy efficient the home is as a building. Using colour charts, the EPC records the current rating and compares this with the rating at which the owner or tenant should aim.

The City & Guilds 6361 Domestic Energy Assessor (DEA) training course includes visits to ALL the 5 domestic properties types required to complete the City & Guilds Domestic Energy Assessor training course assessments.

Unlike some other providers, candidates from PPL will leave the course will all the 5 required assessment visits which are completed during the course. Candidates portfolios are complete and ready for final validation and certification - saving potentially weeks of time in finding, assessing and portfolio building. You will be able to register with an appropriate energy assessment body in a matter of days after leaving the centre.

Receive Your Personal PPL DEA Pack  

When you arrive at PPL Training, you will receive everything that you will need for your Domestic Energy Assessment training course, as well as items you can use once you are a fully qualified Domestic Energy Assessor or Green Deal Advisor. This includes a camera, pen, ruler, laptop and an A4 clipboard; as well as your own personal portfolio file for collating your work.

Comprehensive Theory Learning

During your first day at PPL Training, you will be sat in a classroom-based learning environment, where you will study the background of energy efficiency and general building construction; as well as an overview of what you will be doing for the rest of the week. You will be in a small group to ensure that everybody receives high-quality training tailored to them. 

Use Of Specialist EPC Software  

Once the practical portion of the DEA course is over (see Practical Overview tab), you will use specialist Energy Assessing and Green Deal software called RdSAP. On the Domestic Energy Assessment course you will input information you have gathered on the property assessments to generate your own EPCs, whereas on the GDA portion of the course you will use the information supplied from the completed EPC and occupancy assessment to complete your training. You will be fully trained on this software which is used professionally, leaving you feeling competent and confident for the future. 

1-2-1 Training

Our dedicated and experienced trainers will work with you extensively in the classroom to answer any questions you have, as well as assist you in making subjective decisions and assumptions about Domestic Energy Assessment and the Green Deal. If required, we have ‘focus rooms’ for 1-2-1 learning.

Complete Portfolio Build

Once each EPC has been generated, the last day of the course is spent collating all documentation and supporting evidence such as site notes, site plans, tables of calculations, datasheets and Inspection Risk Assessments into your finished  DEA or GDA portfolio. 

On both the Domestic Energy Assessment training course and the Green Deal Advisor Training, the last thing you will do is hand in your fully completed portfolio folder for internal verification by our trainers, before it is sent to City & Guilds for final assessment. Our trainers will spend up to 3 hours assessing your completed portfolio after you have left the course, ensuring it is of the highest industry standard. This will increase the likelihood that City & Guilds issue your qualification in suitable and efficient timescales.
