The first step in becoming a Green Deal assessor and a domestic energy assessor is to complete the DEA qualification, which allows successful candidates to issues domestic Energy Performance Certificates (EPC), a mandatory part of any house move.
GDA training is then available as a top-up to this course.
The company states that there are no pre-requisites to be a DEA, opening up a potential marketplace when the Green Deal begins.
UTN has said, however, that the best candidates will be those who have some knowledge of domestic building types and with taking measurements and working out dimensions a key part of the course a reasonable knowledge of maths is also required.
The first Domestic Energy Assessor courses will be taking place on the 3 to the 5 September, with Green Deal Assessor training launched shortly after, in October.
