Overview

To become a BREEAM In-Use assessor you need to complete the online learning, attend a two day course, pass the examination and take out a BREEAM In-Use licence. To become licensed, assessors are required to hold professional indemnity insurance.

BREEAM in-Use can be used to assess assets worldwide and has already been used in over 25 countries.

Programme

This course is a combination of online learning and a two day classroom workshop

Online Learning:

The estimated minimum study time needed is up to 25 hours. The content will include:

  • The background to BREEAM and the context for BREEAM In-Use
  • The assessment methodology
  • The roles in BREEAM In Use

Two day classroom workshop:

  • 1 x 60 minute BREEAM In-Use examination.

Please note that if you wish to become a licensed BREEAM In-Use assessor you will need to submit an application form for licence after you have successfully passed the examination.

On successful completion of the course and the examinations 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 course.

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

Qualification for the current course will allow you to carry out assessments (providing that a license has been taken out as an assessor) for the new BIU V6 scheme which was launched in May 2020. The training course material and examinations for the new V6 scheme are still under development and these will be launched later this year; for this reason we are able to continue to offer the BIU International and UK training as a route for qualification.
