COVENTRY: Greenworks, the sustainable solutions and water conservation products supplier, has launched an academy in partnership with PPL Training, the provider of micro-generation renewable energy education. 

The academy represents the first time a merchant has offered independent training, says Greenworks, part of SGBD. "It will deliver 20 specialist training courses that will provide tradesman with the necessary skills and nationally recognised qualifications required to install sustainable solutions and renewable technologies", said business development director, Alan Penny. 

The academy will cover solar hot water and heat pumps through to underfloor heating design and solar photovoltaic. Training locations can be accessed in York, Brighouse, Nottingham and Carmarthen College. All qualifications are from UKCAS- accredited awarding bodies such as BPEC and NICEIC.

Greenworks is currently looking to extend its provision into sites around London, the South of England and Scotland.
