Renewable Energy Training

Renewable Energy Training

We have many years' experience running renewable energy training courses and our trainers can deliver courses on all the main renewable energy topics including: solar PV, solar thermal, heat pumps, wood fuel heating and CHP, micro-CHP and wind turbines.

Flexible renewable energy training

Our flexible approach means that we're able to deliver renewable energy training as anything from lunchtime seminars to more in-depth, five-day courses.

We can also develop renewable energy training materials for delivery by a third party or develop on-line training materials to meet your requirements.

In addition to running our own courses, we offer (as part of the Energy Advice Training Consortium) the more intensive two-day ABBE Energy Advice (Renewable) Award (Level 4 QCF)* on a bespoke basis.
