Individuals that would like to be able to produce Air Conditioning Inspection Reports for clients to be compliant with the Energy Performance of Buildings Regulations will need to apply to be on a Government approved register.  

CIBSE Certification operates such a register and individuals with at least 2 years of relevant experience in the last 5 years can apply through the Approval of Prior Experiential & Learning (APEL) route to be certified and placed on the register.  For details on how to apply go to the CIBSE Certification website.

This course is not mandatory for the APEL route but will exempt you from completing some sections of the APEL application.

If you are hoping to certify as an Air Conditioning Inspector (ACI) it is important that you complete pre-APELbefore you complete a training course.

We recommend reading the following before starting this course:

Improving the Energy Efficiency of our Buildings: A guide to air conditioning inspections for buildings.
