Please note that this training is designed primarily as the final stage for those who have already successfully completed the main application process to be admitted onto the Register of Energy Efficiency Experts or onto the register of Chartered Energy Managers approved to act as lead assessor for ESOS. It does not qualify you as an ESOS Lead Assessor on its own – you must demonstrate your competence and experience through applying to become an approved ESOS Lead Assessor through one of our application routes.
