What makes the Energy Friend qualification different?

The GDA and DEA qualification offered Energy Friend are all certified by ABBE. Unlike the City & Guilds GDA & DEA training courses, the ABBE qualification is that of a very practical nature. There are no exams and all assessments are based on practical portfolio work, made up of sample Green Deal Assessments and Energy Performance Certificates. This allows the trainees to develop the practical skills of becoming a GDA and/or DEA.

Instructors with significant experience

The role of a GDA and DEA is that of a very practical nature; therefore it only makes sense to be trained how to do the job practically, as opposed to learning the theory of how to do the job in a classroom.

All Energy Friend training courses are delivered by highly experienced instructors, Colin Robinson & Guy Mason, both who were amongst the first cohort in England and Wales to be trained as Green Deal Assessors.

In fact, it will be rare to find a Green Deal Assessor like Colin, who has solely carried out near to 100 Green Deal Assessments.

While Guy on the other hand, is qualified both as a domestic and commercial Energy Advisor and has carried out over 5,000 EPCs, as well as having qualifications and experience in installing a vast array of energy products.

Both Colin and Guy have significant practical ’boots on the ground’ experience, delivering energy assessments on a daily basis and their many years of industry knowledge and practical experiences are first handly passed onto the trainees.

The training courses thoroughly teach all the practical elements of being a GDA or DEA, giving trainees a better chance to first hand learn of all the pitfalls they may come across on the job and how to avoid/overcome them.
