Stroma Certification’s ABBE-approved Domestic On Construction Energy Assessor Training is a four-day Level 3 course to qualify as a Domestic On Construction Energy Assessor (DOCEA).
Only qualified Domestic On Construction Energy Assessors can produce both Standard Assessment Procedure (SAP) calculations and Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) required for all new homes.
Complete the DOCEA training with Stroma Certification and you’ll gain membership of a fully audited new build scheme. Candidates are guided through the assessment process, from receiving clients’ instructions to gathering and inputting data to generating the SAP report and lodging the EPC.
The Standard Assessment Procedure is the Government’s methodology for calculating the energy performance of new build UK dwellings. It is used to demonstrate compliance with the requirements of the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) and Part L of the Building Regulations. SAP energy assessments are based on a range of factors including building materials, heating systems and controls, ventilation and renewable technologies.
Stroma Certification provides FSAP software to help DOCEAs to compile SAP calculations in order to consult and assist with the design of new build developments. FSAP 2012 tuition is a component aspect of the four day course and DOCEA members are provided with a software download once they complete the training.
We recommend the completion of a minimum of 10 CPD hours to maintain your DOCEA certification. Stroma Certification will inform you about CPD opportunities to assist with fulfilling this requirement.
Stroma Certification’s Domestic On Construction Energy Assessor (DOCEA) training is approved by the Awarding Body of the Built Environment (ABBE). A registration fee of £230+VAT is payable to ABBE upon course completion. We offer DOCEA training across the UK and can provide the course at a location of your choosing for groups of four or more individuals.
