Overview

The EnergyMasters Fan Specialist Accreditation recognises individuals who have demonstrated best practice design and operation of commercial and industrial fan 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 checks relevant to EnergyMasters Accreditation.

Requirements

The minimum requirements for EnergyMasters Fan Specialist Accreditation include demonstrating to the Assessor that you have general competence in comprehending technical concepts and applying systematic scientific methods to problem solving related to fan system 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 fan systems is most important.

The Fan Assessor will want to see evidence of your:

  • Sufficient qualifications in fluid dynamics
  • Relevant broad work experience
  • Fan design and operational experience
  • Type 3 report (audit, or equivalently technical documentation) applicable to an existing Fan system improvement programme. Your report should include detailed explanations and calculations to provide evidence of your decision making.

If you are unable to submit a Type 3 Fan Systems 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 Fan Systems Audit. All forms and related evidence should be submitted to EMANZ for processing.

This accreditation is based on the Fan Systems Audit Standard
