There are four key steps in the Clean Energy Council insulation accreditation process.
Watch the video for an overview of the insulation accreditation process.
1. Complete the required training

First you will need to complete the relevant training units required for accreditation.
The required training units are:
- CPCCOHS2001A Apply OHS requirements policies and procedures in the construction industry
- CPCCCM1015A Carry out Measurements and Calculations
- CPCCCM2010B Work Safely at Heights
- CPCCPB3014A Install Batt Insulation Products
- CPCCPB3027A Install Ceiling Insulation
2. Apply for your provisional accreditation
Once you have completed your training, you can apply to become provisionally accredited by completing our online form.
You will need to include copies of your:
- Statement of Attainment from the TAFE/course provider
- Certificate of Currency for Public Liability Insurance (coverage for $5 million +)
- Current Working at Heights certification
- current White Card (construction induction, as below)
Your application will then be processed in three to five working days. Once it has been approved, you will be sent via email an accreditation certificate with your new accreditation number.
Your provisional accreditation lasts for six months.
3. Upgrade to full accreditation
Before six months are up, you must apply to upgrade to full accreditation by submitting proof of your work for installations you performed while provisionally accredited. This should be done using the Clean Energy Council forms (under 'resources' on this page).
The jobs must include insulation of batts or rolled products for:
1. Standard Ceiling accreditation:
- three ceilings
2. Standard accreditation plus wall and floor endorsements:
- three ceilings
- three walls, and
- one floor.
Once approved, your full accreditation lasts for one year after which time you can apply to renew.
4. Renew full accreditation
Once you have successfully completed one year as a fully accredited installer, you will need to renew.
Each year you will be required to complete three case studies of jobs. This is to ensure installers continue to work safely and professionally.
