Plumb Center announces Green Deal training dates
Published: 21 September, 2012
LEAMINGTON SPA: Following two successful pilots, autumn dates at four locations have been announced for Plumb Center's recently launched Green Deal Advisor training course.
The new course, specially developed by Plumb Center and its training partner Sevenoaks Energy Academy, involves both in-house training and some home study. Plumb Center believes that installers are best placed also to become Green Deal Advisors, and this course will provide all the knowledge needed to produce an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) and a Green Deal assessment.
The new course dates run from 1 October through to 10 December 2012, from Mansfield, Leamington Spa, Sevenoaks and Bristol. There are no pre-course requirements for the standard course, the classroom part of which lasts for seven days.
However, if a person works as an electrician, Level 3 domestic plumbing or heating engineer, gas engineer, MCS installer, air conditioning engineer or structural engineer, they will already have some of the knowledge and skills required, said Plumb Center.
The national merchant has already trained more than 600 people to BPEC and NICEIC-recognised qualifications in renewables technologies at its nationwide network of seven training centres. An eighth centre is soon to open in Falkirk.
