Qualification Overview

Level 3 Certificate In Domestic Energy Assesment ABBE 600/5478/5


This qualification is a professional qualification for those who wish to pursue a career as a Domestic Energy Assessor (DEA).

Once qualified, DEAs register with an Accreditation Scheme which accredits them to produce Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) for individual existing homes (not newly built).

This is in accordance with legislation implementing the EU Directive on the Energy Performance of Buildings. EPCs, energy ratings for homes similar to consumer-friendly ‘fridge ratings’, have been compulsory at the time of let or sale of domestic properties since 2008. EPCs can only be produced by qualified, accredited energy assessors.

The qualification is suitable for new entrants to the sector seeking to begin a career in energy assessment but also for those with experience in property inspection or surveying wishing to gain a qualification in energy assessment.

What does a Domestic Energy Assessor do?


A domestic energy assessor (DEA) in the UK plays a critical role in assessing the energy performance of residential properties. Their main responsibilities include:


  1. Conducting Assessments: The DEA visits homes to collect data on dimensions, construction, heating and hot water systems, and insulation. This information helps in evaluating the property’s energy efficiency.

  2. Producing EPCs: Using the data collected, the DEA generates an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC). The EPC rates the energy efficiency of the property on a scale from A (most efficient) to G (least efficient) and suggests measures to improve efficiency. This certificate is mandatory when selling or renting out a property.

  3. Advising Homeowners: Beyond just assessing and certifying, DEAs often advise homeowners or potential buyers on how to improve a property’s energy efficiency, which can include suggestions for better insulation, efficient heating systems, or the installation of renewable energy sources.

  4. Regulatory Compliance: DEAs ensure that assessments are compliant with current regulations and standards. They must be accredited and maintain their knowledge and skills according to the latest industry standards.
