VIC Residential Efficiency Scorecard

VIC Residential Efficiency Scorecard

The Victorian Residential Efficiency Scorecard (the Scorecard) is a unique program that provides an energy star rating for your home. In the same way as a fridge or washing machine has a star rating, a Scorecard rating shows how much energy is used by different parts of your home.

The Scorecard star rating program is the first of its kind in Australia. Assessments are tailored specifically for your home and are delivered by government-approved assessors. The Victorian Government has applied strict quality control standards which assessors must meet to be accredited.

This opportunity is ideal for people with existing experience and skills in home sustainability assessment.

Transformed is now offering the training pathways specified as a pre-qualification for Scorecard assessor applicants. Only accredited assessors can provide Scorecard assessments.

Transformed offers flexible training and assessment options which allow participants to fit in their training program around work and other commitments. Transformed offers two flexible learning pathways to enable participants to complete this qualification. They are:

1. Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) - this pathway involves assessment only, assessing evidence of existing skills and knowledge against the competency standards.

2. Distance learning - this pathway provides an interactive online virtual learning environment to train and support participants throughout the duration of their course. The Transformed team will keep in touch every step of the way and guide participants either through training literature, videos and trainer / assessor contact. 

  • Various work-based assessment tasks; and
  • Completion of written question and answers.

Assessment for the units noted for the VIC Residential Efficiency Scorecard requirement is against the competency standards within the CPP Property Services Training Package.

Assessment by portfolio and interview is available to those with workplace experience in home and energy sustainability disciplines including NatHERS Assessment. This approach requires the participant to furnish substantial evidence of experience as well as evidence supporting an understanding and application of skills and knowledge relevant to the unit descriptions.

Self-paced study over a 6 month period for distance learning and 6 month period for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL).

This program is designed for those new to, or with an interest in conducting Victorian Residential Energy Scorecard Assessments including:

  • Existing NatHERS Assessors
  • Architects and Draftspersons
  • Builders
  • Building Designers

Testimonials
""...I originally enrolled in Transformed's Diploma of Project Management on the basis of their flexibility. ..As I subsequently discovered, Transformed's approach extends even further to include 'one on one' coaching sessions... and adjusting the training to fit in with the client.."

Michael Irwin, Austrade
"I engaged Michael Young from Transformed to assess me for the Australian Institute of Project Management Certified Practicing Project Manager. I wanted to be certified as I wanted to verify that the skills and knowledge was in line with industry best-practice. At first it seemed a bit daunting, however, Michael made the process very easy, providing templates for references and self-assessment as well as providing a list of the project management documents I would need to provide as evidence. The assessment interview was very relaxed and more like a conversation than an assessment, which brought out the best experiences to evidence my capabilities. Because of Michael's current government security clearance, we were able to look at specific of particular projects, rather me than having to spend a heap of time sanitising documents. Since the assessment, I have been successful in gaining a promotion.."
