BRE Watford

This is a four day course which incorporates all building types covered under the BREEAM New Construction 2014 scheme and is for New Assessors Only.

The examination day takes place after the initial 3 day training course – 30 September 2014

Details :

Are you interested in sustainable buildings, looking for a new career or adding to your current portfolio to improve the quality of the built environment?  If so we are running a four day training course (including examination) on BREEAM UK New Construction 2014, the standard for new non domestic buildings. BREEAM is the world's leading environmental assessment methodology. The training will introduce you to BREEAM, and the assessment process.    

Delivered through a mixture of pre-course learning, presentations, workshops and exercises, delegates will be taken on a journey through the BREEAM assessment process gradually building up their knowledge and confidence towards becoming an assessor.

Successful delegates will emerge qualified to undertake BREEAM assessments of new non domestic buildings leading to BREEAM certification.

Key learning outcomes from the course:

  • Understanding the role of the assessor
  • Approaching assessment with the mind-set of an assessor
  • The technical aspects of assessing the sustainability of a Non domestic building using BREEAM
  • The assessment process and support structures in place for the scheme and assessors

Day 3 will be based in a computer suite as delegates undertake interactive training and exercises on using the BREEAM calculator tools. 

Approximately 4 weeks after the inital 3 day training course delegates shall attend an examination day and undertake the BREEAM UK New Construction 2014 competent persons examinations. Delegates are required to bring photo ID with them on this exam day.

This course requires completion of pre-course work that will form the basis of the classroom training; therefore the last booking date for this course will be one week prior to the course commencing to allow delegates enough time to complete this pre-course work.

This scheme uses calculation tools which run in MS Excel with macros. Macintosh computers are unable to use this function and you will need access to a PC to complete assessments.

  • The price of the four day course is £1995 plus VAT (including the examinations)
