Course description

Home Quality Mark | New Assessor

This course equips you with the knowledge and skills to become a licensed Home Quality Mark Assessor. This enables you to drive sustainability and quality in new build domestic projects by assessing and delivering Home Quality Mark certified dwellings in the UK.

The Home Quality Mark (HQM) is the national quality mark designed to give people the confidence that their new home is well designed, well built, and cost-effective to run. It also allows house builders to demonstrate the high quality of their homes and to differentiate them in the marketplace.

It is developed by BRE with an extensive list of partners from the private and social housing sectors and promotes the positive attributes of quality and performance in a new build home.

This training course provides a technical understanding of HQM and enables learners to gain the HQM assessor qualification.
