BREEAM New Construction Infrastructure delegates will discover BREEAM through a blended learning approach delivered via online learning modules, classroom engagement followed by two examinations. Successful completion of this process allows you to become a fully qualified BREEAM New Construction Infrastructure Assessor, and a new member of the BREEAM family.

The following information details your journey to becoming qualified as a BREEAM New Construction Infrastructure Assessor:

Online learning

The training programme commences with a period of online modules, delivered through our dedicated online learning portal. You will be led on a journey into BREEAM by way of interactive content and technical presentations, which will gradually build your knowledge of the BREEAM New Construction Infrastructure scheme.

The online learning takes 15-20 hours to complete. This must be completed before attending classroom training.

The structure of the online learning is:

  • Module 1 – An introduction to BREEAM
  • Module 2 – The BREEAM New Construction Infrastructure Assessment process
  • Module 3 – Technical Orientation
  • Module 4 - Examination preparation and mock exams

Classroom training

Following the online learning, you will attend two days of classroom based learning to consolidate your newly acquired knowledge. Through workshops and group learning activities you will refine the understanding you’ve gained through the online learning, before moving on to the more complex and technical aspects of the scheme. Throughout each day there will also be the opportunity to ask questions on the pre-course learning materials, including the mock exams, so that you feel ready for the examinations. Each module is led by BRE technical trainers.

The structure of the classroom course is:

Day 1 – Consolidate knowledge on the role of the assessor, the assessment process, and the pre-assessment process. Learn about the assessment of strategic process and technical issues that inform early planning and design decisions.

Day 2 – Focus on more complex technical strategic issues and project detail calculations.

Day 3 – Examinations

Revision and examinations

Your revision period for the examinations begins before the classroom course. Please ensure that you have attempted the mock examination papers to support your revision. You will be given the opportunity to ask any queries during day 1 and 2 of the classroom course.

The two examinations are held on the third day of the classroom training course. Both exams are multiple choice and open book. You may refer to any notes or documentation that will assist you. You will need to pass both examinations to become a qualified assessor of the scheme.

Please note:

  • You must present acceptable photo identification (ID) for admission to the examination. This may be either your passport, driving licence or EU ID card. Please note that without photo ID you will not be permitted to undertake the examinations.
