    Yes.
    So you have the option to cancel your appointment and wait until after February, or go ahead with the exam.
    "For new entrants looking to register as a non-domestic BER assessor for the first time, candidates will be required to fulfill the pre-qualification registration requirements currently outlined on SEAI’s website, supply the relevant registration documentation to SEAI and complete a mandatory validation exercise on an example building.
    Once successfully registered as a BER assessor, new entrants will be required to complete a pre- publication mentoring audit and will be subject to current standard QA auditing processes."

    I was scheduled to sit my first dber exam on Jan 15.

    Hypothetically if I was to sit it and fail, how would that affect me in February? Been trying to secure an exam place for 6 months. Could do with starting work again.

    Ditto. I've a DBER exam booked and paid for late January but haven't heard anything about exam disruption. Where did you hear they were abolished and what did you actually hear?

    Email from SEAI to all existing BER assessors on Friday
    I would contact SEAI for clarification

    Spoke to SEAI yesterday. They seemed to know as much about the details of this change as I do, damn all. All that they could do was read the letter which was sent out. What exactly is meant by mentoring in the context of being qualified? Will you be required to undertake a survey while being observed?

    Cancelled exam earlier today. Prometric were not notified about the changes.

    Surely prometric work under contract and you'd think they would be fully aware of the situation??

    When I cancelled earlier the guy that I spoke with in Prometric asked me did SEAI change the rules as I was the second person to cancel in the past couple of days.
