SmartRate received advice on 13 February 2014 from Solar Logic that the software and the licensing model under NatHERS is under review and that this review may impact on BERS and on the ability of SmartRate to offer training in this tool in the future.

In consequence, training in BERS Pro has been suspended until further clarification is received from Solar Logic in this regard.

"We are reviewing the BERS courses scheduled for March" said SmartRate CEO Michael Plunkett.

"Participants who have enrolled for these courses will be contacted by SmartRate in the coming week and all available options canvassed".

If the courses do not proceed, participants who have paid course fees and wish to withdraw will receive a full refund" he said.

It is also important to note that the suspension of classroom based training does not impact on participants who have enrolled with SmartRate to complete the Certificate 4 in NatHERS Assessment (CPP41212) via the RPL Assessment pathway.
