Training & CPD Events

Continuous Professional Development

All members are required to carry out a specified number of hours of CPD in each accreditation year in order to keep you up to date with the latest conventions and guidance. Continuous professional development will encapsulate any changes in software where applicable and scheme changes that affect the provision of Energy Reports.

Every accredited energy assessor is required to complete at least 10 hours learning per annum for a primary strand plus 5 hours per additional accredited strand. The minimum 10 hour requirement is split to 7 hours structured and 3 hours unstructured learning. Structured learning would be an interactive environment with a lecturer and unstructured would be self learning or reading.

Retrofit Assessors are required to complete an additional 10 hours CPD and Retrofit Coordinators 25 Hours CPD. As an example a DEA who is also a Retrofit Assessor would need to complete 20 hours CPD.

It is necessary that you complete the required level of continuous learning throughout the year as failure to do so will result in a disciplinary matter, which would ultimately lead to suspension. As part of our internal audit procedures we will contact you from time to time to discuss your current CPD program.
