There are two types of NABERSNZ professionals: NABERSNZ Practitioners and NABERSNZ Accredited Assessors.
NABERSNZ Practitioners are trained to have a broad knowledge about NABERSNZ and the Certified Rating process from a client's perspective. Although they are not fully accredited and cannot perform Certified Rating Assessments, their understanding of the tool and its objectives enables the Practitioners to take a leadership role in initiating and implementing a NABERSNZ Certified Rating and continually improvement process.
- add value to employers or clients through a greater understanding of energy management in commercial buildings
- help save owners and tenants money by reducing the time needed to collect data for a NABERSNZ Certified Rating assessment
- help improve energy efficiency and reduce costs
NABERSNZ Accredited Assessors are independent building energy professionals who are trained and accredited to perform NABERSNZ Certified Ratings. To qualify as NABERSNZ Accredited Assessors they have to complete specific training, pass examinations and carry out supervised ratings. Accredited Assessors are contracted to the NZGBC and carry out rating assessments according to the Rules and Methodology specified by the NABERSNZ programme.
