Free CPD Points for Energy Assessor accreditation

For past, present and future Education In Building students

Supporting Thermal Performance assessors….

Education In Building is recognised as the leading Nationally Recognised Training provider (RTO) of NatHERS training for Thermal Performance Assessors in Australia. As such, we support industry by providing the tools necessary to be successful as an energy rating specialist.

After a recent review of the industry, the Education In Building Technical and Training Advisory Committee (TTAC) identified that beyond the initial training assessors received for accreditation, there is very little ongoing support other than the few webinars that go over the same old stuff and are offered by providers that are not Registered Training Organisations. The review also identified that a number of current energy rating assessors would fail a quality audit review they may be subjected to by their AAO.

At EIB we believe that it is our duty of care as a responsible Registered Training Organisation (RTO) to support industry by providing CPD programs that are sufficient, relevant, current, informative and valid.

Our Masterplan programs have been designed with this responsibility in mind, which is why we are offering all our past, present and future students their required 12 CPD points for free for a limited time.

Whilst offering CPD points at no charge to our past students sounds to good to be true, we are not just giving them away.

Assessors who participate in our Masterplan courses will be required to successfully complete these courses prior to being awarded the CPD points.

The masterclass courses have been authored by our EIB Technical and Training Advisory Committee (TTAC) ensuring they will broaden the knowledge, skills development of personal qualities necessary for the competent execution of professional and technical duties throughout an assessor’s working career as required by the AAOs.

Each of our CPD courses have been approved by the Assessor Accrediting Organisations. ABSA and BDAV.
