Overview

The EnergyMasters Compressed Air Specialist Accreditation recognises individuals who have demonstrated best practice design and operation of compressed air systems with respect to energy performance.

Membership of EMANZ or the Institution of Professional Engineers NZ (IPENZ) is not mandatory for Accreditation. However if you are already an IPENZ or EMANZ accredited professional you will not have to complete some aspects of the assessment process, because all IPENZ and EMANZ Members undergo several checks and assessments relevant to EnergyMasters Compressed Air Specialist Accreditation.

Requirements

The minimum requirements for EnergyMasters Compressed Air Specialist Accreditation include demonstrating to the Assessors that you have general competence in comprehending technical concepts and applying systematic scientific methods to problem solving related to compressed air systems design and operation.
 
Membership of an IPENZ Practice College or registration on a relevant current competence register is helpful in demonstrating general competence. Current work experience in the industrial sector with an emphasis on compressed air systems is most important.
 
The CAS Assessors will want evidence of your:
  • Successful completion of a Compressed Air Systems (CAS) Education Course approved under the Scheme. This is a mandatory requirement
  • Relevant work experience
  • Compressed air systems auditing experience.
  • Evidence that you have successfully passed the Education Course
  • A Type 3 CAS Audit Report. Your report should include detailed explanations and calculations to provide evidence of your decision making. 
If you are unable to submit a Type 3 CAS Audit report, you may submit a Type 2 Energy Audit as defined in AS/NZS 3598.2:2014 for assessment to obtain provisional accreditation until you have carried out a Type 3 CAS Audit. All forms and related evidence should be submitted to EMANZ for processing.
 
This accreditation is based on the Compressed Air Systems Audit Standard
