BREEAM In-Use Training - This event has already finished

27 November 2012
BRE Watford

A one day training course to assess existing buildings.

Details :

BREEAM In-Use is a new scheme to help building managers and owners reduce the running costs and improve the environmental performance of existing buildings.  The scheme will use an on-line assessment tool which can be completed by managers and owners to self-assess their buildings. These self-assessments will have to be audited by independent auditors before certification can be granted. To carry out BREEAM In-Use audits you need to attend a one day course, pass the examination and take out a BREEAM In-Use licence. 

This course is available only to the following individuals:

  • Existing BREEAM Assessors and BRE Global accredited Non Domestic EPC, and DEC assessors currently exclusively registered with BRE schemes.
  • Those with at least two years' experience in one or more of the following professions: Building surveying, Building regulatory (control) services, Facilities management.

BREEAM In-Use is currently only available for assessments made against UK based assets. BREEAM In-Use International is currently underdevelopment and will be available shortly
