BREEAM AP training

 

This qualification enables delegates to work across the relevant BREEAM schemes as a sustainability professional.  Delegates completing all aspects of this course will learn the role of the AP and what a development needs to do in order to meet BREEAM targets and sustainability goals. Delegates will learn the need to facilitate projects teams to schedule activities, set priorities and negotiate the trade-offs required to achieve the target BREEAM rating when the development is formally assessed. Once qualified, a BREEAM AP can help developments achieve up to three BREEAM credits dependent on the schemes that they are working on.

CEEQUAL Projects Assessor training

 

CEEQUAL is the evidence-based sustainability assessment, rating and awards scheme for civil engineering, infrastructure, landscaping, and public realm projects.

In addition to its use as a rating system to assess performance, CEEQUAL also provides significant influence to project or contract teams as they develop, design and construct their work, because it encourages them to consider sustainability issues at the most appropriate time.

A CEEQUAL assessment is undertaken by a trained and registered CEEQUAL Assessor, who is normally part of the project or contract team that applies for the assessment, and it is then independently verified by a CEEQUAL Verifier. So, to undertake an assessment, a project or contract team needs a trained CEEQUAL Assessor.

The nature of the CEEQUAL Scheme means that Assessors usually have experience and interest in either civil engineering and/or public realm works or in environment and sustainability issues, and a knowledge base in either of these areas will be very helpful in the course of an assessment. However, there is no need to be an expert in either of these areas to go through the training process and be a successful Assessor.

The CEEQUAL Projects Assessor Training Course has been designed so that everyone who completes it successfully will be able to undertake an Assessment using either CEEQUAL Version 5 or CEEQUAL Version 6.

Programme

The course covers:

  • Background to CEEQUAL and why it has been developed;
  • The scheme and assessment process in detail;
  • Use of the appropriate CEEQUAL technical manual, including basic skills required and the role of the Assessor;
  • The environmental and social issues covered by the scheme.
  • Detailed study of each category of the assessment including the nature of the questions, reasons for their inclusion and scoping-out advice; and
  • the assessment and verification process.

Following the training course, all delegates who have reached the required standard will be issued with a CEEQUAL Projects Assessor Certificate.

Cost: $ 10,500 HKD

Course Duration: 2 days
