    Details

    This course is aimed at delegates who are planning to work on current BREEAM Infrastructure pilot projects in the UK. Please contact us if you are unsure if the course is right for you.

    Delegates will learn how to complete assessments using BREEAM New Construction Infrastructure (Pilot) through a blended approach of online learning modules and classroom training. The course is followed by two examinations that allow you to become a qualified BREEAM New Construction Infrastructure (Pilot) Assessor.

    Qualified assessors will be able to upgrade to the coming CEEQUAL (2018) scheme with top-up training in the future. Further details regarding top-up training will be available in the summer 2018.

    Online learning

    The training programme commences with a period of online modules, delivered through our dedicated online learning portal. You will be led on a journey into BREEAM by way of interactive content and technical presentations, which will gradually build your knowledge of the BREEAM New Construction Infrastructure (Pilot) scheme.

    The online learning takes 15-20 hours to complete. This must be completed before attending classroom training.

    The structure of the online learning is:

    • Module 1 – An introduction to BREEAM
    • Module 2 – The BREEAM New Construction Infrastructure Assessment process
    • Module 3 – Technical Orientation
    • Module 4 - Examination preparation and mock exams

    Classroom training

    Following the online learning, you will attend two days of classroom based learning to consolidate your newly acquired knowledge. Through workshops and group learning activities you will refine the understanding you’ve gained through the online learning, before moving on to the more complex and technical aspects of the scheme. Throughout each day there will also be the opportunity to ask questions on the pre-course learning materials, including the mock exams, so that you feel ready for the examinations. Each module is led by BRE technical trainers.

    The structure of the classroom course is:

    • Day 1 – Consolidate knowledge on the role of the assessor, the assessment process, and the pre-assessment process. Learn about the strategic assessment and technical issues that inform early planning and design decisions.
    • Day 2 – Focus on more complex technical strategic issues and project detail calculations.
    • Day 3 – Examinations

    Revision and examinations

    Your revision period for the examinations begins before the classroom course. Please ensure that you have attempted the mock examination papers to support your revision. You will be given the opportunity to ask any queries during day 1 and 2 of the classroom course.

    Two examinations are held on the third day of the classroom training course:

    • BREEAM New Construction Infrastructure (Pilot) Technical, 120 minutes
    • BREEAM General Understanding, 90 minutes

    Both exams are multiple choice and open book. You may refer to any notes or documentation that will assist you. You will need to pass both examinations to become a qualified assessor of the scheme. Current licenced BREEAM Assessors who have passed a BREEAM General Understanding paper will not need to sit the BREEAM General Understanding paper again.
