Am I eligible to become an assessor?

Domestic Assessors require a NFQ Level 6 Advanced Certificate/Higher Certificate in construction studies (or similar) or a recognised equivalent. Equivalence maybe defined as a combination of an appropriate construction-related qualification and significant relevant experience.

Recognised appropriate construction-related qualifications include:

  • The UK Domestic Energy Assessor (DEA) course
  • The UK Home Inspectors Course

 

Non-Domestic BER and DEC Assessors are required to satisfy two criteria for pre-qualification. The first is a qualification in a building construction-related discipline. This can be either:

  • Proof of qualifications in a building or construction-related discipline; or
  • Proof of membership in a professional organisation
