Renewable Energy Training

The UK needs renewable installers

Interested in renewable energy training?

Worcester Bosch Training
In the not too distant future, all of our buildings will be powered and heated by renewables – either indirectly, through the national grid which is in the process of moving away from fossil fuels, or directly using technology such as heat pumps and solar photovoltaics.

 

The UK needs renewable energy installers if it is going to meet the target of ‘Net Zero’ by 2050, presenting a great opportunity for plumbing and heating engineers looking to upskill. Our renewable courses are designed for existing building services installers, providing a relatively easy way to gain the necessary qualifications to future-proof your business.

 

The government has promised 600,000 heat pump installations by 2028 – that’s a lot of heat pumps! At the moment, there are nowhere near the amount of trained engineers required to meet this ambition. If you train as a heat pump installer, you will be in demand. 

 

We deliver an Air Source Heat Pump (ASHP) course, using the latest Daikin heat pumps, plus supporting Water Regulations (WRAS) and Energy Efficiency in Domestic Heating qualifications, providing everything you need to hit the ground running.

 

The Green & Renewable sector is here to stay. As innovations in green technologies progress, they are set to be incorporated into all aspects of modern life in both the public and private sector. Unfortunately, education is yet to match the technology’s exponential curve, so getting into the renewables industry now is a gold-mine for installers as the demand far overshadows the supply of qualified installers.

For existing heating and plumbing engineers, training takes less than a week. 

Take your place in a green and lucrative future!

In the industry renewable energy training revolves around electricity based energy production as well as courses around low temperature and low emission processes.

Jobs in the Renewable Sector include; Heat Pump installer and servicer, Air Conditioning Installer, Solar Technician, Power Storage Technician, Work within the water authority.

The most common around today are boilers, cookers, and fires.

To start a career in the renewable industry you will need to either hold an electrician qualification or qualify in a Air Source Heat Pump course which is a great into the industry.

Broadly, any non-fossil fuel based energy, primarily electricity. While electricity can be produced with fossil fuels, more and more is becoming green or low emission, with the infrastructure being widely transferable over to full green energy when the time comes.
