Australia Fenestration Rating Council (AFRC) windows training for Energy Assessors

Friday, October 2, 2020

On 14 September 2020, the NatHERS Steering Committee (the Energy Efficiency Advisory Team) agreed to the cessation of mandatory windows training for energy assessors.

This means that windows training provided by the Australia Fenestration Rating Council (AFRC) is no longer mandatory in order for assessors to access the Custom Window Library in NatHERS Software Tools.

The NatHERS Administrator will continue to work with registered training organisations, Assessor Accrediting Organisations and the AFRC to encourage the development of further specialised glazing training which may, for example, be offered as continuing professional development to assessors, builders and certifiers.
