Step 6: Mentoring

Following your registration as a BER Assessor, you will be allocated a Mentoring Audit with one of SEAI’s BER Auditors. This will be randomly selected from one of your published BER assessments.

Mentoring audits are a learning resource provided by SEAI, within which you will be given the opportunity to ask questions and discuss various aspects of the BER’s data inputs with your assigned auditor. Learning outcomes will be provided to you following the mentoring sessions, which can then be used in the completion of subsequent BER assessments.

SEAI will be in contact with you directly to organise the allocation of your mentoring audit.
