HLF - Publication, Tuesday, May 19, 2009 7 Ready to cater for green job New household sustainability assessors will be trained to provide advice on the Federal Government's Green Home Loans program. Archicentre, the building advisory service of the Australian Institute of Architects, will expand its training role to cater for the demand for qualified assessors. Archicentre managing director Robert Caulfield said the Green Loans program would involve a team of 1000 assessors providing advice to 360,000 homeowners on what they could do to be more energy-efficient. ''Under the program many assessments to improve household energy-efficiency could be straightforward, but others could be more costly,'' he said. ''The government will make loans of up to $10,000 available to meet those costs.'' Households will need to engage a qualified household sustainability assessor to investigate their current energy and water use and provide recommendations and advice. Households may then have access to a low-interest Green Loan. The assessment fee will be paid by the Federal Government and is $150 to $275 per assessment. Mr Caulfield said in order to become an assessor, individuals must complete a professional course such as the one being offered by Archicentre. ''The course is ideally suited to people involved in building design, documentation or construction, building assessments, energy audits, and people involved with building materials or building-related services,'' he said. ''With sustainability being a major trend in renovation, and with the current economic climate, we see an increased number of people applying for low- interest Green Loans and it is vital there are enough household sustainability assessors to assist homeowners.''
