Maintain your qualifications

When you become qualified through the NZGBC under one of the rating tools, there are requirements to ensure your qualification remains up to date. This maintains the integrity of the tools by ensuring that professionals actively working on projects have current, up-to-date knowledge and experience.

Your status can be maintained by paying the renewal fee and, for GSAPs and Homestar Assessors, completing FE points. While there are no requirements for FE points for Homestar and Green Star Practitioners, they will be required to undertake refresher training when a major tool update is released.


Green Star Renewals

Green Star renewals are due every two years. You will be emailed an invoice one month before your qualification is due to expire. GSAPs are required to complete 10 FE points in order to be eligible for renewal; see FE points page for more detail.
