This virtual training event is delivered over two consecutive days with a separate day for the online examinations. The training will introduce you to the BREEAM Domestic Refurbishment scheme and the assessment process.

The BREEAM Domestic Refurbishment scheme provides a methodology, software tool and certification for those responsible for delivering sustainable domestic refurbishment projects. It is designed to help building owners and occupiers save operating costs, reduce the environmental impacts of refurbishments and to increase the sustainability of existing building stock.

Delivered through a mixture of pre-course learning, presentations, workshop and exercises, you will be taken on a journey through the BREEAM Domestic Refurbishment assessment process gradually building up your knowledge and confidence towards becoming an assessor.

Online examinations

The examinations are held online. The day and time will need to be set by individual trainees directly with ProctorU* for a date that is suitable to both parties. The earliest date that the exam could be sat is 72hrs after the virtual event has taken place. BRE Academy are working with ProctorU* Inc., based in the USA, to remotely invigilate and verify the identity of trainees taking the exam which forms part of this online learning course. Please note that any document related to the course to aid trainees with the examination(s) can be either in paper format (these can be your own handwritten notes, note cards, etc) or in PDF copies (the latter must be taken directly from the actual course on the BRE.AC Moodle eLearning website).


On successful completion of the examination you will be issued with notification that verifies your BREEAM Assessor qualification. You will then be required to apply to BRE Global Ltd to become a Licenced BREEAM Assessor under the scheme in order to practice. You must make this application within 12 months of completing the examination.

To practice as a licenced BREEAM Assessor you will be required to pay an annual licence fee and hold adequate levels of professional insurance, particularly professional indemnity insurance. Further information on the route to becoming a licenced BREEAM Assessor can be found at www.breeam.com
