  • Becoming Accredited

    Formal NABERS Energy for data centre ratings can be conducted by NABERS Accredited Assessors or those who first complete the Core Assessor Course. The accreditation process for NABERS Energy for data centres includes a one day face-to-face training course and a written exam. Those who successfully complete the training requirements will need to undergo a Supervised Rating for their first data centre rating.

    • Existing NABERS Accredited Assessors:

    As NABERS Accredited Assessors, you have already attended the introductory course or completed NABERS Essentials, and passed as a minimum the Core Assessor Course.

    To become accredited for Data Centres, you will be required to:

    - attend the one day NABERS Energy for data centres Training Course; and
    - pass the written data centres exam

    Your first data centre rating will be supervised. Please note that the rating lodgement fee for the NABERS data centre Supervised Ratings applies for existing NABERS Accredited Assessors.

    • Becoming a NABERS Accredited Assessor for Data Centres ONLY:

    If you are interested in becoming accredited for NABERS for Data Centres ONLY and are thus new to the NABERS program, you will be required to:

    - complete NABERS Essentials, our introductory e-learning course; and
    - complete the Core Assessor Course; and
    - attend the one day NABERS Energy for data centres Training Course; and
    - pass the written data centres exam

    Note: The rating lodgement fee is waived for the first Supervised Rating for people who seek accreditation for data centres only.

    The NABERS program relates to existing buildings and applicants should be comfortable with analysing these buildings and auditing information such as energy consumption, metering diagrams and IT equipment. Every assessment includes at least one site visit to confirm data.

    You will need to have the confidence and ability to inspect data centres and to interpret engineering documents including drawings and plant specifications and IT equipment. You must also understand your responsibilities under the OH&S Act within the state you are operating in. Many existing Assessors are engineers, architects and facility managers.
