House Energy Rating

Thermal Performance Assessment

This training provides the skills and knowledge needed for conducting house energy ratings using Energy Rating Software.

Suitable for those who do not require NatHERS accreditation but wish to learn the skills required to carry out an Energy Rating on Residential dwellings.

Understanding how to use energy rating software is an integral part of this training. Participants can choose to carryout their training in any one of the four Energy Rating software tools Accurate, BERS Pro, FirstRate5 or Hero.

This software modelling course takes participants on a step-by-step journey of modelling a residential dwelling from start to finish.

This course is suitable to achieve the nationally recognised qualifications.

  • CPPHES4004 – Conduct thermal performance assessments of residential buildings.
  • CPPHES5001 – Conduct thermal performance assessments of complex residential buildings.

Participants will learn how to apply software tool functions and modelling methods suitable for complex building types, construction methods and materials as well as running simulations to determine if the potential thermal performance of the complex dwelling complies with regulatory requirements.

Who is this course for?

✅ This course is designed to enhance the skills of those who operate within an office that have a number of employees wishing to upgrade their skills for carrying out energy assessments and are not required to be NatHERS accredited.

✅ This course is offered anywhere in Australia and is suitable for Energy assessors who are not required to be NatHERS Accredited and operate within the states of QLD, VIC, TAS, SA, WA, & NT

Advanced skills

The complex modelling training goes deeper into the latest version of the software. It covers, but is not limited to Advanced split zones, elements & modelling on a complex residential dwelling.

The main objective of this course is to assist assessors understand the energy rating in greater detail.

  • Principles of passive design
  • Thermal performance of a variety of building materials
  • Thermal performance ratings
  • Requirements for modelling complex buildings and non-standard materials
  • Climate- appropriate construction methods and materials
  • Involved complex levels, built shading devises and void arrangements
  • Applying software tool functions and modelling methods suitable for complex building types, construction methods and materials

The outcome is a greater retention of knowledge and skills that can easily be transferred back in the work place.
