Who should do the training?

Why do the training?
To register as a Greenhouse and Energy Auditor, the NGER Regulations 2008 (Legislative Instrument no 127, 2008 as amended) require that applicants have NGER legislation knowledge and be able to provide to the Clean Energy Regulator appropriate evidence of the knowledge (sub-regulation 6.14). Section 7 of the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting (Auditor Registration) Instrument 2010, requires evidence of how the knowledge was obtained, including relevant training in NGER legislation.

Is the NGERS Course relevant and applicable to non-financial auditors?
