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.

Just recently completed a fault finding course with the ever knowledgeable Roy Fugler.I honestly cannot rate this training centre and Roy highly enough!I completed my ACS training with them over two years ago and they were my number one choice when I decided to expand my knowledge around the inner workings of a boiler and how to diagnose the issues that often arise.I will have to re-sit my ACS again in a few years and there’s only one place I’ll be going. It’s VIVA all the way!

Passed my ACS with Viva, great trainers put me at ease in a relaxed training atmosphere. Roy & Pete are down to earth, helpful and know there stuff. Lindsay was helpful with the paperwork/ portfolio side of the course, which also helped as paperwork isn't my forte.The company they use for placement are also good, made a few new friends and enjoyed the experience with Basi. Would recommend and I will be going back.
Top guys and great place

Great training great experience would recommend
Did the heat pump installation course. Really good and informative. Free brews as well!
Very good course good tutor and learned more than I thought I would.
Best course I have attended Unlike others which are showroom based don’t touch this or you left mark there.This was actually hands on course Different makes and models were in workshop both live and dead boilers also lots of sensor switches pumps,G valves etc. Pete was excellent made sure everyone understood what were they doing and what outcome or readings they were looking from each test carried out.pete put faults on live Boilers when we were away for break to simulate real world scenarios which was really good.Excellent would really recommend it.
Well worth the journey from London! Thank you Roy you have answered many of my questions I have had for many years. Can’t thank you enough for passing on the knowledge which will massively improve me as an engineer for years to come.David
