Qualifications

To be a skilled renewable installation engineer you need to be registered in many emerging areas: Solar Hot Water Systems, Heat Pumps (Ground & Air), Domestic Wind turbines, Rainwater Harvesting, Grey-water recycling. The qualifications you receive are nationally recognised, as an approved installer you will be eligible to join the appropriate approved grants scheme such as the Micro-generation Certification Scheme supported by DECC. It is worth remembering, specific manufacturer courses may be beneficial but they may not entitle the person to join a grant scheme – due to the fact certain renewable energy manufacturer courses tend to be aimed at single products and not generic.
