SAP Refresher Course

SAP CPD Events



Who should attend?

These CPD events provide a great opportunity for qualified On-Construction Domestic Energy Assessors to develop their knowledge of complicated SAP Conventions and methodology. The courses are aimed at experienced energy assessors who already understand SAP. Therefore, the course is unsuitable for unqualified assessors. Please visit our OCDEA Training page for more information on becoming qualified to produce SAP Calculations.
