BREEAM is the world’s leading sustainability assessment method for master planning projects, infrastructure and buildings, and addresses construction at all stages. It is the world’s longest established method of assessing, rating, and certifying the sustainability of buildings.
This comprehensive online course has been developed with input from more than 400 industry professionals across the supply chain (many of whom have rolled it out to their full teams and use it as compulsory induction training for new team members). It offers an understanding of BREEAM principles, the process of applying these and managing risk from pre-tender to completion. The breadth of coverage appeals to all members of the project team to understand, in-depth, the essence of what the BREEAM Environmental Assessment Methodology is about, what it involves, and how to successfully support the BREEAM process.
BREEAM Associate was the winner of the Chartered Institute of Building Service Engineers (CIBSE) Building Performance Training Programme Awards. It was recognised for having a significant effect upon staff skills and development, resulting in a positive impact on the performance of buildings through design, construction, commissioning and operation.
After successfully completing this course, you’ll be able to:
- Develop a deeper understanding of BREEAM and what it involves
- Be proactive in planning, delivery and managing risk
- Identify opportunities for high environmental performance at low cost
- Set out the behaviours needed to deliver cost-effective results
- Support the BREEAM process day to day
- Know how and when to work with BREEAM assessors and sustainability champions
- Confidently navigate the BREEAM manuals
- Avoid common mistakes and manage risk from pre-tender through to completion

excellent course, all in one box
Very useful in understanding the core principles of BREEAM
enjoyed the course, highly interactive and gave in-depth knowledge
Great course. Gives you the basic knowledge needed to start navigating the rating world of BREEAM. Clear flow and structured modules to follow.
It gave me a good understanding of the principles behind BREEAM, and how it can enable more sustainability in new and existing buildings. Very useful.
This course really helped pull together a greater understanding of the components and how different team members need to work collaboratively to chieve best results.
As a design professional the course has certainly given me lots to consider on future projects. The content was easy to follow and flexible.
The precise and clear content as well as the available resources. It is definitely worth it.
The course is very good, the study materials are very clear and simple to go through, allowing to go back at any point and studying in a flexible way.
I felt it was a good course because this was justifiably a difficult course
As a recent Environmental Engineer Graduate, I can assure that the course provided me with expertise in the area of sustainability as well as a plethora of useful resources for my future career in the field of built environment.
This course really tested my knowledge!
Excellent course. The subject matter was comprehensively delivered and very informative.
Very informative and useful to further my career.
I couldn't think of a better way to be proficient in the BREEAM methodology than by taking this course.
Great and interesting course; clear, well-structured and comprehensive presentations, although maybe a little bit more information can be included.
Excellent course! I look forward to using my newly gained knowledge on my next project.
Good plain, easy to understand information with no stress examination.
Very informative course which gave a broad overview of what BREEAM is and how it can benefit assets in a variety of ways
As a non construction professional, it was interesting to learn about environmental considerations from a different perspective.
Very helpful in understanding the main principles of the BREEAM Assessments.
This course has helped me enormously in understanding the needs and processes involved in BREEAM.
An excellent first encounter into the role of BREEAM!
A well constructed, informative course.
I have just completed the BREEAM Associate Course. I very much enjoyed how clear and rigorous it was, especially regarding how to interpret the various BREEAM Schemes and assess the relevant technical standards vis-a-vis the built environment assets in question, concerning target BREEAM ratings, evidence gathering, compliance issues and eventual certification (whether at the interim stage and/or final stage). The interactive nature of the lesson delivery made it much easier to follow and absorb the relevant material. I found neither the mock examination nor the formal examination but that is a good thing - it reassured me of the high standards that a BREEAM Associate is expected to achieve and maintain. Thank you very much, BRE Academy. My journey to becoming a BREEAM Associate was worth every penny. Now for the next stage of the journey, wherever it leads me....! Cheers, Peter Gisbey (Dr.)
This course provided the adequate amount of information needed for the first stage of familiarising with BREEAM.
Very helpful in understanding the main principles of the BREEAM Assessments and the process of certification.
It was the right level for what I was hoping to acheive.
Good introductory course for professionals entering into BREEAM. It sets out the scope and highlights avenues for further study in sustainability.
I enjoyed the course because it was prepared in intelligent way.
I really enjoyed studying for the course and taking the exam!
