EnergyCPD - heat pumps today
The European Energy Centre is helping individuals enter the renewable energy market with the launch of a new certification, the Renewable Energy Award.
The training programme includes modules in finance, heat pumps, solar thermal, solar PV, biomass and CHP, to name a few. Students have to pass a minimum of nine modules out the 12 available in the programme to gain the qualification. 

Demand for the course, according to the Centre, strong because students want to differentiate themselves in a quickly developing and competitive market. Delegates for the courses so far includes people from 105 countries. 

Training is delivered remotely and flexibly using videos, webinars and other study materials. Many learners fit the training in around their working lives in the evenings and at weekends.Users can use laptops, tablet PCs or smartphones to see the training. Learners have to complete nine modules within 18 months of starting to get their certificates.  

It is not all remote learning, however. Students can attend some of the modules at participating universities. When students pass three quarters of the modules, they are automatically entered into the EnergyCPD Professional Membership Programme's top membership level. 

It is not cheap, however. At nearly £3,000, it is probably a course which many will need help in funding to complete it.
