Important Information

  • You MUST take Part 2 before being allowed to sit Part 3. You cannot take Part 3 on its own.
  • Please note that candidates who satisfactorily complete the mandatory BRE Academy ‘Approved Certifier of Design’ (ACD) training and pass the exam are not necessarily guaranteed entry to the ACD scheme. This is because the BRE Global ACD scheme has a separate application process. Please also note that separate domestic and non-domestic ACD schemes exist, and membership of one does not include membership of the other. Prospective delegates should therefore assimilate themselves with the ACD scheme application and membership requirements (as formally set out within the ACD scheme documents (‘SD149’ – domestic and/or ‘SD151’ – non-domestic), both available at: bre.co.uk/acd, prior to accepting booking any training as BRE accept no responsibility should delegates fail to satisfy the Scheme membership criteria.
  • We recommend that applicants undertake the Part 1 training however, in the case where applicants choose not to undertake the Part 1 training this is done at their own risk and BRE accept no responsibility should applicants fail the Part 3 examination owing to shortcomings in this area. Please also note that evidence of suitable competence with regard to compliance assessment (i.e. equivalent to the part 1 training) will need to be provided in support any subsequent application to the BRE Global ACD schemes.
