Becoming a Green Deal Assessor and what training do you need to get involved?

Green Deal Advisors and Green Deal Assessors (GDAs) will provide information and support to householders to help them improve their energy efficiency, thereby reducing their fuel bills and carbon emissions.

As part of the Home Energy Savings (HES) programme to move the UK towards becoming a low carbon economy, the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) and the Department for Communities and Local Government (CLG) have jointly published a consultation on 'Heat and Energy Saving Strategy'. This document sets out the Government's vision up to 2020 and beyond, with the Green Deal at the heart of this vision.

Green energy advisors will allow individuals and businesses to make energy efficiency improvements to their buildings at no upfront cost. Central to the Green Deal is a finance mechanism that will allow access to the finance needed for the improvements, with repayment being made in installments linked to utility bills based on the cost-savings that the installed measures achieve - effectively meaning that consumers will pay-as-they-save.

The domestic Green Deal Assessor (GDA) role more specifically will be to identify and provide green deal advice on how individual householders can reduce their energy usage through changes to their property (e.g. getting cavity wall insulation or renewable energy technologies installed) and changes to their energy consumption behaviour (e.g. not leaving the TV or other equipment on standby).

To get involved, participants will require Green Deal training. Only qualified Green Deal Advisors (also known as Green Deal energy assessors) will be able to undertake this work and provide customers with access to this funding.

To become a qualified assessor, each individual must hold the level 3 Diploma qualification in Domestic Green Deal. Green Qual offer training courses across the UK to help new entrants and existing DEAs to get to the required standard.

Not only is the Green Deal a great offer for customers; it is also a great opportunity for firms to compete in a new market. The DECC has indicated that the Green Deal will drive billions of pounds of investment in energy efficiency measures over the next decade - but only those who have undergone the relevant type of training will be able to get involved.

Who is the GDA Assessor course suitable for?

The green deal assessors course is ideal for anyone looking to get involved in the Green Deal, both new entrants and existing energy professionals (such as DEAs).


    Becoming a Green Deal Assessor

    Green Qual have developed an intensive, 2-5 day advisor training course led and monitored by a team of fully accredited energy experts.

    During the 2-5 day green deal assessor training programme all candidates will have the opportunity to learn the following aspects of the Advisor Role;
    • The Green Deal introduction
    • Consumer requirements for the Green Deal
    • Consumer Protection within the Green Deal
    • Green Deal Finance
    • Preparing for the Occupancy Assessment
    • The effects of building pathology, tenure and behavioural change
    • Advice and the process of delivering green deal advice
    • The principals of the Green Deal Assessor Advice Report
    • Software introduction and software training
    • The Golden Rule calculations
    • plus much, much more...

    No experience in surveying or energy consultancy is neccessary to enroll onto the Green Deal Advisor course however existing Domestic Energy Assessors (DEAs) will follow a slightly different route to new entrants of the industry.

    For new entrants, our Green Deal Assessor programme includes the DEA units as part of the overall Green Deal Advisor qualification. This special 'dove tail' course means that there is no need to do these as two separate qualifications as some centres suggest - meaning that you can pass quicker.

    For the full qualification structure, please see the awarding body handbooks below:

Candidates interested in Green Deal Assessor training, may also wish to learn more about the previous proposals for Community Energy Advisors, which was proposed to be a more extensive role offering energy advice at a community level (as opposed to the individual home level). Although this role is no longer part of the current Green Deal Plans, it demonstrates how this energy advisor role could progress.
