To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government how many accredited energy assessors there are on the Landmark database; how many people have undertaken training courses to gain this accreditation; and what expenditure his Department has incurred in the provision of such training to date.

A total of 11,967 accredited energy assessors are currently registered on the domestic Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) Register and 3,027 accredited energy assessors are registered on the non-domestic EPC Register. Training courses to gain accreditation are provided by commercial training providers. No data are collected centrally on the numbers of people that have undertaken training courses and to do so would involve disproportionate cost. No expenditure has been incurred by the Department in the provision of training.
