As such, since 2012, Greenworks has worked closely with Jewson, Graham, Minster and Gibbs & Dandy to support the implementation of Green Deal and ensure we have a full training offer to accredit trade professionals.

"At Greenworks, we have seen a positive impact on training levels in the countdown to the Green Deal and a clear uptake in the upskilling of many of our customers. We have seen increasing numbers of customers taking courses to become both qualified Green Deal assessors and advisors and as such, we have increased the number of sessions and released our Green Deal Training Guide, which can be downloaded via the Greenworks website."
