““Quidos training is very professional, but always in a relaxed and interactive way. Always my first choice in training courses. C. Louw“
Since October 2008, all non domestic properties put up for either sale or rent within the U.K. require an energy performance certificate (EPC). The EPC provides an overview of the building’s energy performance and helps owners and occupiers make their buildings more energy efficient. Non domestic buildings have been split into various level of complexity. The level 4 diploma will enable you to complete EPCs on all buildings without “frequently occurring characteristics”.
We offer Level 3 and 4 City and Guilds NDEA training, with dates throughout 2017.The qualification comprises of a mix of classroom and distance learning elements and ensures that trainees have complied with each of the elements of the national occupation standards (NOS).

The EPC provides an overview of the building’s energy performance and helps owners and occupiers make their buildings more energy efficient.
Non domestic buildings have been split into various level of complexity. The level 4 diploma will enable you to complete EPCs on all buildings without “frequently occurring characteristics”.
This encompassed approximately 25% of the commercial market.
The qualification comprises of a mix of classroom and distance learning elements and ensures that trainees have complied with each of the elements of the national occupation standards (NOS)
-The classroom element lasts an initial five days
-The training days focus on both L3 and L4 systems on non domestic buildings.
Once the classroom days are complete, there are two additional assessment criterias
-Complete a portfolio of 5 EPCs on a range of non domestic properties (data collected can be used for the portfolio work, however additional work is required at home)
-Submit supporting portfolio evidence
Once candidates have completed the portfolio successfully, they will be awarded the qualification and be ready to join an accreditation scheme and then practice as a non domestic energy assessor.
Please note that these qualifications can be completed with ABBE and with City & Guilds.
The structure of the portfolio depends on the Awarding body used. Generally in London, candidates will be asked to work with the City and Guilds portfolio structure.
Commercial Energy Assessor Training (NDEA) Level 3&4 / 5 Day
(Course title: 6361-04 Level 4 Diploma in Non-Domestic Energy Assessment)
This course will enable you to qualify as a Level 3 and Level 4 Commercial Energy Assessor. It makes sense to qualify to up to Level 4 as this will give you access to all Commercial Buildings requiring EPCs. This course is designed for new entrants with no previous experience necessary. There is no exam; however you will be expected to produce a Portfolio of 5 sample surveys to demonstrate your competence. We will supply you with two of these buildings during the course. The Commercial Energy Assessor role is challenging yet satisfying as you will be inspecting many varied buildings and producing Energy Performance Certificates in a professional environment. Green Deal Advisors will need to be Qualified NDEAs. The progress is totally up to the learner but can be completed in less than 2 weeks and we will help progress learners to achieve their goals.The cost of the course includes training, assessment, the certification fee and all course material, along with refreshments throughout the day.
