To become a Home Energy Advisor you can take the NEA/City and Guilds 6176 qualification in Energy Awareness.

National Energy Action conduct three-day courses leading to a four-part exam for the qualification. Full cost, including exam, is around £750+VAT (at time of writing) .

Discounts are available for various groups.

More details of the course plus dates and venues can be found on the NAE’s website: Energy Awareness 6176.


In a recent letter to members, NAE said:

Government is very much in favour of helping consumers to understand and take action to reduce household energy costs and for this reason has included RTD’s and HEA with a cap of 2% of a suppliers’ [CERT] target. This will lead the way for the installation of 3.7 million RTD’s OR 5.4 million HEA visits or a combination of the two.

2.5% amounts to around £80m. Joseph Pestell of Energenius calculates the cost of each visit to be around £20 each; although it will largely depend on how the split is made.


So far? Oh, at last count the NAE alone had trained in excess of 14,000 (not sure if anyone else offers it), but that's not to say they'll all pile into this "market".

You can also embark on the courses that will inevitably emerge from the finalised NOS too.
