A large, quality NDEA scheme.

Authorised by the Department of Communities & Local Government, Stroma Certification's Non-Domestic Energy Assessment Certification scheme has been running for over 7 years. With over 800 members and a regularly audited scheme, you should be joining the Stroma-certified community.

What are Energy Performance Certificates?

EPCs are mandatory upon construction, sale or rental of any non-domestic building, whether new or existing. An assessment must be carried out by an accredited assessor and an EPC generated, which gives the building a rating of A–G (A being the most energy efficient).

An EPC is also accompanied by an Advisory Report (AR), which outlines ways in which energy can be saved and provides recommendations that include the short, medium and long-term paybacks of various green technologies. The implementation of these recommendations would reduce the building's CO2 emissions, as well as fuel costs.

Train to the right level.

Stroma Certification's variety of training packages covers NDEA levels 3 and 4. Includes iSBEM software tutorial for non-domestic properties. Choose the best option for you to get started as a Non-Domestic Energy Assessor. Book your NDEA training with Stroma.
