HomeFit Courses

We offer a comprehensive training webinar on HomeFit. Anyone may participate in the free webinar, but participants who are interested in gaining a qualification and operating as a HomeFit assessor will need to meet the prerequisite qualifications outlined below.

HomeFit assessor training

The HomeFit training webinar focuses on teaching an in-depth understanding of HomeFit and the assessment process. Participants will be able to become a qualified HomeFit assessor and receive a subscription to the online tool. The course includes a presentation followed by a live Q&A.

After the successful completion of the training and exam, assessors will be required to pay the HomeFit subscription fee and sign the HomeFit Assessor Agreement, which contains the terms and conditions under which they agree to operate as a HomeFit assessor.

Become a HomeFit Installer

The HomeFit online check gives consumers an indication of how close they are to achieving the standard and if close, how to have the home independently assessed. If there are improvements needing to be done first, these are included in a detailed report, along with the opportunity to contact an installer directly from the HomeFit app. If you would like to become a HomeFit installer please email us here.
