Section 63 Advisor DEC APEL Course Combined s.63 and DEC

Display Energy Certificate APEL Course Only £395.00 + VAT

DEC APEL Training is your route to become approved as a DEC Assessor in the quickest time possible. This course is specifically aimed at existing NDEAs who wish to offer DECs to their clients as part of the upcoming Section 63 requirements.

Whilst it is not a requirement that a Section 63 Advisor must also be a DEC Assessor, it is likely that a single individual may often offer all three services – EPC Assessor, Section 63 Advisor and DEC Assessor – to building owners.

During your one day attendance you will learn all aspects of Display Energy Certificates which includes surveying, building identification techniques, understanding ORScotland software and how this fits into Scottish regulations. We will also provide you with a route to become a member of an Approved Organisation.

As part of the APEL application process you will be required to complete three simulated DEC projects and demonstrate your existing skills and knowledge within the energy assessment industry. For new entrants who do not qualify for the APEL route we also offer the full ABBE Level 3 Diploma in Operational Ratings (DECs).

50% Funding may also be available for this course through The Low Carbon Skills Fund.

If you would like to find out more please contact 0333 012 0002 or email

We can also offer this course in-house for groups of 6 or more.
