Are you interested in sustainable buildings, looking for a new career, or adding to your current portfolio to improve the quality of the built environment? If so, we are running a four day training course (including examinations) on BREEAM UK New Construction 2014, the standard for new non domestic buildings. BREEAM is the world’s leading environmental assessment methodology. The training will introduce you to BREEAM, and the assessment process.
Delivered through a mixture of pre-course learning, presentations, workshops and exercises, learners will be taken on a journey through the BREEAM assessment process gradually building up their knowledge and confidence towards becoming an assessor.
Successful learners will emerge qualified to undertake BREEAM assessments of new non domestic buildings leading to BREEAM certification.
Key learning outcomes from the course:
- Understanding the role of the assessor
- Approaching assessment with the mind-set of an assessor
- The technical aspects of assessing the sustainability of a Non domestic building using BREEAM
- The assessment process and support structures in place for the scheme and assessors
Day 2 will be based in a computer suite as learners undertake interactive training and exercises on using the BREEAM calculator tools.
Approximately 4 weeks after the initial 3 day training course learners will need to attend an examination day where they shall undertake the BREEAM UK New Construction 2014 competent persons examinations. During the 4 week revision period learners are given access to additional revision materials to study in preparation for their examination.
This scheme uses calculation tools which run in MS Excel with macros. Macintosh computers are unable to use this function and you will need access to a PC to complete assessments.
The course fee includes all material including a copy of the BREEAM UK New Construction 2014 technical guide. All learners completing the course will receive a CPD certificate.
- The price of the four day course is £1995 plus VAT (including the examinations)
