Training and certifications for the next generation of utilities technology

Why choose a Renewables course?

As of April 1st, 2024, newly built Scottish homes can't have gas boilers installed. This is driving demand for renewable technologies like Solar PV, Air Source Heat Pumps, and EV Charging; creating demand for technicians to install and maintain it!
