Domestic Energy Assessor (DEA) Training

Upskill for EPCs, RSAP+ and RdSAP 9.92.

Stroma Certification’s ABBE-approved Domestic Energy Assessor Training is a three-day intensive course to qualify as a Domestic Energy Assessor (DEA).

Join the industry’s largest, DCLG authorised DEA scheme. Get a license to collect domestic property data, generate Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) and comply with the Reduced Data Standard Assessment Procedure (RdSAP).


Complete the DEA training with Stroma Certification and you’ll gain membership of a fully audited domestic scheme. You’re supported by a dedicated and expert technical support team and provided with the software and technical resources to gain a competitive advantage within the energy assessment industry.

RSAP+ software: our energy assessment suite

During the DEA course we’ll demonstrate and tutor you in the use of RSAP+ - Stroma Certification’s energy assessment software for desktop and iPad. With four RdSAP 9.92 compliant modules, RSAP+ is an indispensable, complementary benefit to all our DEA members.

Green DEAl

Once qualified as a DEA, you can extend your training to become a Domestic Green Deal Advisor. A 10% discount is available to existing Stroma Certification members and you need to complete a successful on site Witnessed Assessment.

Continuing Professional Development

We recommend the completion of a minimum of 10 CPD hours to maintain your DEA certification. Stroma Certification provides regular CPD sessions to members to assist with fulfilling this requirement.
