Assessor Training

Education In Building is the leading providersof training for Energy Assessors in Australia. We offer training pathways to obtain the formal qualifications required for the Residential Efficiency scorecard in Victoria.

The Residential Efficiency Scorecard will allow Victorian households to understand and improve the energy efficiency of their home through a new star rating system. The star rating is a great way to show the value of investing in a better performing and more comfortable home.

The web-based Scorecard tool generates the star rating based on an in-home assessment. Trained assessors accredited with the program have access to the tool. Assessors are supported with a range of administration services including training and quality control of assessments. All the information relating to assessments is stored centrally and is managed in accordance with Victorian Government policy on storing private information.
