Overview

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.

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.)
