St Gobain takes micro-generation training
Published: 05 August, 2011
COVENTRY: Saint-Gobain building distribution companies, Jewson, Graham, Gibbs & Dandy and Minster are using training provided by the Greenworks Training Academy in partnership with Stroma Certification.
This training will provide clear routes for Saint-Gobain clients to become members of government- approved certification schemes that encourage high standards in sustainable construction and refurbishment.
Governmental approved schemes for Micro-generation Certification and Competent Persons Schemes ensure all notifications, inspections and installations of the micro-generation technologies; solar photovoltaics, solar thermal and heat pumps are produced to consistently high standards.
The combination of renewable technology training courses available, based at the purpose built Academy in Birmingham are designed to provide either an introduction for those considering pursuing a career in renewable energy or to meet the full City & Guilds qualification criteria for solar PV, solar thermal and heat pump design, installation and maintenance.
Stroma has also developed an overview course of legislative compliance and product related scope, that details how Part L integrates with SAP (Standard Assessment Procedure) and accredited construction details, all of which are new for Building Regulation compliance, to enable Greenworks to offer a truly bespoke course tailored for its clients' needs.
Marcus Jefford, Greenworks Academy manager commented: "We have already seen numerous customers through the door eager to discover the parameters of renewable technologies and the interest from our staff across all brands to update their skills and knowledge with compliance requirements has been very well received. Stroma has taken a very hands on and straightforward approach to ensuring the training is carried out thoroughly and in tune with meeting Greenworks core values."
