Home Performance Index Assessor Training @ Irish Green Building Council
Feb 23 @ 9:00 am – 5:00 pm
Home Performance Index Assessor Training @ Irish Green Building Council | County Dublin | Ireland

Training to become Certified HPI Assessor (€275 members/€425 non members*)

The Home Performance Index (HPI) is Ireland’s first national quality and sustainability assessment system for new housing. The HPI is based on five verifiable categories: Environment, Economic, Health and Well being, Quality Assurance and Sustainable Location. The IGBC are currently building a pool of highly skilled HPI professionals by delivering the Home Performance Index Assessor training.

Residential development will be the key growth area in the construction industry over the next five years. There will be considerable government investment, with quality and sustainability as one of the key requirements . A number of large PPP residential projects will be tendered over the coming year and developers who are looking to get an edge on their competitors should consider the Home Performance Index as the clearest way of meeting quality requirements.

Being a Certified HPI Assessor allows you to advise clients and submit assessments for HPI, Ireland’s first national quality and sustainability assessment system for new housing.

For those with no experience in assessment methodologies such as LEED or BREEAM there is a prerequisite one day online training and exercise to be completed.

Are you ready for your LEED credential?

This two-day LEED AP (Accredited Professional) Exam Preparation course will prepare you to sit the LEED AP exam. The LEED AP exam is designed to test the knowledge and skills necessary to participate in the design process, to support and encourage integrated design, and to streamline the LEED application and certification process.

This is a 15-hour programme, with one conference call and two full day sessions, over the course of 6 weeks. Learners will have either done the LEED Green Associate training or have already taken the LEED Green Associate exam. Previous experience in LEED is strongly recommended, but not required.

This course has been structured around the LEED AP BD+C study guide, but is appropriate for those who plan to take the exam in other specialty areas.  Learners will be provided with the candidate handbook for their specialty, and with the LEED AP BD+C study guide.

The course will start with a 1 hour webinar, to review the materials and to distribute the 4-week study guide.

The LEED AP exam costs $400 for the full exam and $250 for specialty only exam fee.  The exam is coordinated by the US GBC. In order to take the exam you will need to register separately through the US GBC and schedule your exam through Prometrics who have an exam centre in Dublin.
