Graham releases its dedicated training prospectus
Published:  19 September, 2011

COVENTRY: Plumbers’ merchant Graham is now able to offer customers a one stop solution to becoming MCS accredited through its Greenworks Training Academy and partner Stroma.

Aiding the recent move, a comprehensive training prospectus and partner website has been developed to allow customers access to the range of training courses on offer. For those looking to enrol on the MCS training programme, the Graham Training Prospectus clearly explains what the course entails, the costs involved and how to go about signing up.

Customers can learn how to become an MCS certified installer, including Quality Manual System (QMS) preparation – something that is required to meet the set criteria for joining an MCS certification body.

Once a customer has gained QMS, they will be able to join Stroma, a UKAS accredited certification body licensed by the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) for the certification of microgeneration installers.

The prospectus offers professionals a guide by which they can select the most appropriate course to meet their needs. From introductory courses for those looking to increase their knowledge of various technologies, without gaining a formal qualification, through to complimentary courses designed to make the attainment of a qualification easier, the prospectus contains an in depth break down of what is to be expected from each course.

Supporting the prospectus, Graham has launched a new Greenworks Learning Gateway for customers to access e-learning modules on a range of renewable technologies, market drivers and legislation updates.

Debbie-Sue Price, market director of renewables at Graham, said: “Through our state of the art Greenworks Training Academy, we can offer customers access to the qualifications they need to take advantage of the growing renewables sector, we have been able to put together a comprehensive prospectus that allows potential course attendees to select the training course that best suits their needs, including offering local courses on MCS – the quality assurance scheme needed to install renewable technology and access the government incentive.”

Greenworks has grown to become the UK’s recognised authority and market expert in sustainable building products and solutions. It provides construction professionals with in-depth advice and support on sustainable building solutions, including renewable energy products.

Through its specialist Training Academy, Greenworks also provides a range of industry leading practical and classroom based training and e-learning modules.
