Training - default windows

Tuesday, May 26, 2015

Free training is currently available for accredited assessors on the new default windows. Funding from the National Administrator for the training finishes on 30 June 2015 when free access to the online training course will cease and after that date assessors will need to pay the course cost of $145.

The training covers the use of the new default windows that are used in NatHERS accredited Energy Rating Software.

Once the training is completed, assessors can register for access to the Australian Fenestration Rating Council (AFRC) custom library files. The training is complemented by a quiz for each of the two sections of training. Once they are successfully completed a certificate can be downloaded and used towards CPD. If you are unable to login because the original registration period has elapsed please email to request an extension. Please note that the extension of a registration will not extend beyond 30 June 2015 and all components of the quiz need to be completed by that date. Partial completed participants will need to pay after 30 June regardless of how far they have progressed through the unit.

BERS and FR5 assessors should take this opportunity to complete both units while it is being supported, as costs will apply when custom windows are available in these two software products.

If you wish to do the course and training post 30 June 2015 you can do so through the AFRC. Registration is through the AWA website The course cost after 30 June 2015 will be $145 including GST.
