NOTE: ONLY ACT ON THE ESOS LEAD ASSESSOR APPROVAL PROCESS PAYMENT IF YOU HAVE BEEN INSTRUCTED TO DO SO BY THE EMA.
The EMA approves ESOS Lead Assessors on an individual basis after they’ve successfully completed our 4-step process (application pack, training, assessment and interview). The process can be undertaken by applicants with a minimum of 2 years of good quality relevant professional energy management and energy audits/assessments experience relevant to the PAS 51215 capabilities.
The EMA ESOS lead assessor process:
Step 1: Submit a completed application form together with an up-to-date CV, copies of relevant qualification/certificates (BA, BSc, MA, MSc, etc) and agree to the EMA Code of Conduct prior to applicant’s attendance of a one-day training course: ‘EMA Become an ESOS Lead Assessor‘ .
Step 2: Complete a one-day training course: `EMA Become an ESOS Lead Assessor`. The course is delivered as a live tutor-led session on Zoom (09:30-16:00). Find the course date here.
Step 3: Successfully complete a written post-course assessment.
Step 4: Successfully complete a peer review interview.
It takes approximately 4-6 weeks to complete the Steps 2 to 4 of the process. The cost of the entire process, including a 3-year registration as the EMA ESOS Lead Assessor, is £1,500+VAT per applicant. There is an option to continue annually renewing the professional status after the initial 3-year registration.
Please note that if approved as the EMA ESOS Lead Assessor, you will be required to complete a minimum of 10 hours of CPD per annum and report it to the EMA.
