Getting Started

ABSA is a nationally based not-for-profit member organisation. As one of its functions, ABSA accredits HERS assessors (also called Residential Building Thermal Performance assessors) under the Federal Government’s Nationwide House Energy Rating Scheme (NatHERS) protocols. ABSA aims to provide all its members with a high level of professionalism and support.

As of 11 November 2019 all NatHERS Accredited Assessors must hold a Certificate IV in Home Energy Efficiency and Sustainability (Thermal Performance Assessment) (CPP41119).

For those who have held their certification prior to 11 November 2019, but equivalent Certificate IV in NatHERS Assessment (CPP41212) still applies and there is no requirement for you to upgrade or attend any further training to uphold your current qualification.

Here is a detailed explanation about the current qualification requirements from the NatHERS Regulator for your reference. 

In order to expedite the accreditation process, ABSA has set out the steps that will need to be fulfilled in order to gain accreditation.
