Efficiency certification open for applications 06 April 2016

Applications for certification under the Energy Efficiency Certification Scheme are now open.

Australia’s only professional certification for individuals that lead and manage comprehensive energy retrofits of commercial buildings, the Scheme is designed to build confidence in the sector, opening up opportunities for business by giving building owners and managers a reliable way to determine whether a project leader has the knowledge and skills required to manage a complex energy upgrade.

Professionals certified under the Scheme enjoy:

  • a competitive business advantage by giving potential clients complete confidence in their skills and experience
  • independent recognition of their knowledge, expertise and skills and an effective professional development opportunity
  • being part of a community working to improve standards and practices in the delivery of energy retrofit projects

There are two levels of certification. The ‘Certified Energy Efficiency Specialist’ designation is available to those with experience working as part of project teams implementing energy efficiency retrofits of commercial buildings, while recognition as a ‘Certified Energy Efficiency Leader’ is available to seasoned energy efficiency professionals that have extensive knowledge and experience, including direct experience leading all stages of a comprehensive building upgrade.

Thanks to a partnership with NSW Office of Environment & Heritage, subsidies of $1210 (inc GST) are available to eligible candidates based in NSW.
