Certificate IV in NatHERS Package Pricing

The Nationwide House Energy Ratings Scheme (NatHERS) encourages energy efficiency by giving homes a star rating based on the thermal performance of their design. NatHERS is the most common way to show that a new home or major renovation meets the minimum state and territory building efficiency requirements as detailed in the National Construction Code (NCC).

In 2015 there were 228,950 new buildings approved in Australia. At the same time, there were only 289 Accredited NatHERS Assessors operating nationally.

At Transformed we’re on a mission to create an army of energy raters and thermal performance assessors who can drive improvements in sustainable house design.  We are continuously writing blog posts, compiling reports of our best thinking and key learning from our experiences.  We’re engaging with key players in the industry and facilitating discussions on thermal performance assessment.

We’re passionate about energy rating and we wanted to bring more knowledge and opportunity to you rather than just offering the standard qualification so we developed some packages to supercharge your study and provide extraordinary value to get you well on your path to being a NatHERS assessor.

Benefits of the Packages:
  • Fast track your establishment as a NatHERS Assessor – With over 70% of new buildings being rated by Accredited NatHERS Assessors, a huge opportunity exists to earn extra income.
  • Gain access to our growing network of assessors and utilize professional advice with 10 hours of coaching : By becoming an Accredited NatHERS Assessor, you will join the small number of energy raters across Australia who are recognised as professionals in their field.
  • Learn the software tool Firstrate5– Now with over 60 videos to get you confident and competent in producing NatHERS Reports.
  • Only Accredited NatHERS Assessors can issue the coloured Accredited Universal Certificate and stamp plans with the official NatHERS logo – this satisfies the competence requirements to conduct ratings in all jurisdictions and complete BASIX assessments for Development Applications for multi-storey unit developments in NSW.
