Energy Trust UK are delivering the ABBE Level 3 Award in Energy Efficiency Measures for Older and Traditional Buildings qualification, which has been developed to raise awareness of older, traditional or vulnerable buildings (e.g. buildings built prior to 1919). The focus is to identify, assess, and give advice on appropriate energy efficiency measures for older and traditional buildings.
This qualification is compliant and meets the Trustmark Standards for the PAS 2035 Retrofit Assessor status to be able to carry out Pathway B and C assessments.
On completing the qualification, learners will be able to:
- Recognise the age, nature and characteristics of older and traditional buildings
- Assess options for the introduction of energy efficiency measures for older and traditional buildings making recommendations and giving advice on the introduction of energy efficiency measures
Learners may already be working in a role where they have responsibility for producing Energy Performance Certificates (e.g. as a DEA/GDA, Retrofit Assessor). It will enable them to demonstrate the skills and knowledge that they have gained through their employment enabling learners to achieve a nationally recognised qualification.
This course will be delivered over two consecutive days via Zoom with a requirement to complete two short multiple-choice tests and a virtual interactive case study on the final afternoon which will make up a portfolio of evidence.
