An insight into the qualification
In order to be able to complete ACRs, candidates need to complete the ABBE L3 diploma in air conditioning energy assessment (ACEA L3).
The air conditioning energy assessor L3 training qualification is comprised of a mix of classroom and distance learning elements, and will ensure that trainees have complied with each of the elements of the national occupation standards (NOS) for L3 air conditioning energy assessment.
Once candidates have completed the classroom training days, there is one assessment criterion that needs to be completed:
Complete a portfolio of 3 ACRs on all air conditioning systems that candidate will encounter at level 3.
Once candidates have completed the portfolio, they will be awarded the qualification and be ready to practice as an accredited L3 air conditioning energy assessor.

As of January 4th 2011, all air conditioning systems in the U.K. which have an effective rated output of more than 12 kw are required to have had their first energy inspection completed on the units.
Air conditioning inspections can only be completed by qualified and accredited air conditioning energy assessors.
The assessor is required to inspect the air conditioning systems and report on their findings.
Air conditioning systems have been split into various levels of complexity. The level 3 diploma will enable you to complete air conditioning reports on all packaged systems:
This includes split, multi-split and VRF systems.
