Type of institution: Registered Training Organisation
Level: Pre-degree

This is a qualification for thermal performance assessors and home sustainability assessors. Thermal performance assessors operate under the Nationwide House Energy Rating Scheme (NatHERS) to rate the energy efficiency of a home based on its design. They use government approved software and information obtained from residential building plans and drawings to model potential consumption of energy for heating and cooling purposes and assess and certify the thermal performance of homes based on a ten-star rating system.Home sustainability assessors provide advice to homeowners seeking to improve the efficiency, cost to run, sustainability and comfort needs of their household. They conduct on-site assessments of residences and advise on opportunities to improve comfort and to save on energy and water costs, and ways to live more sustainably in a residential environment.Licensing requirements apply to thermal performance assessments in some states and territories. For further information, check with the relevant regulatory authority.
