Press Release Summary: Professional Commercial Energy Assessor Awards now available

Press Release Body: Reading and Birmingham: One of the first Commercial Energy
Assessor Courses in the UK will be running at the Energy Assessor College, in both
Reading and Birmingham, as of 28 April 2008.

Selected applicants undertake training at the Energy Assessor College as well as
studying from home and completing a portfolio of Energy Performance Certificates
(EPCs), gaining a professional Commercial Energy Assessor Award.

ABBE accredited course
Energy Assessor College has designed the course around the National Occupational
Standards for Commercial Energy Assessors.

Following successful completion of this ABBE-accredited course and the related
Diploma, applicants have a route in to the brand new market for issuing EPCs for
commercial properties.

Energy Assessor College created the course in anticipation of legislation due to be
passed on 1 October 2008, decreeing that any Commercial Property with a floor space
of less than 2,500m2 is to be issued with an EPC.

This will mean that thousands of properties, from high street shops to doctors' and
dentists' surgeries, will need the services of a professional Commercial Energy
Assessor in order to assess levels of heat-loss and CO2 emissions and issue EPCs.
Consequently, this will create increased demand for commercial energy assessors.

\"This demand opens the door for anyone seeking a new career, either starting out on
a new business venture, or seeking self-employment through an EPC panel management
company, such as EAC's associated company, Energy Assessments Direct,\" says Simon
MacTaggart, MD, Built Environment and Skills Training (BEST) Ltd.

With training centres for the Energy Assessor College in Reading and Birmingham -
both equipped with relaxed learning environments and the latest presentation
technology - anyone living in Southern and Central England and Wales has the
opportunity to qualify as a Commercial Energy Assessor.

More information
Also available at either training centres are Multi-Skilled, Commercial and Domestic
Energy Assessor courses.
