Housing & Energy Efficiency – NCC CPD Course

11 August 2021

The Australian Building Codes Board is offering an NCC CPD course to help build understanding of housing energy efficiency requirements. A special discounted offer is available for a limited time.

The booming housing market is an opportunity for practitioners to give more consideration to the important role energy efficiency plays in designing future homes. Practitioners have choice in which compliance pathway they follow to meet housing energy efficiency requirements in the National Construction Code (NCC).

The Australian Building Codes Board’s new NCC CPD course on housing energy efficiency will enhance the understanding of those designing and delivering Class 1 residential buildings and some Class 10a buildings by deepening understanding of relevant provisions of Volume Two of the NCC.

Course outline

The two-hour online course gives an introductory overview of the key concepts that are covered by the Volume Two energy efficiency provisions, including the options for compliance, concessions and the pathways involved.

Course participants will become familiar with Deemed-to-Satisfy methods for energy efficiency compliance. The course will also provide insight into when and how a Performance Solution may be used and explain the reference building Verification Method.
