Northamptonshire builders complete training in support of Green Deal

Published:  26 July, 2013

A group of Northamptonshire builders, plumbers and contractors, all customers of merchant Travis Perkins, have completed an exclusive 10-day course to become New Entrant Green Deal Domestic Advisors (Assessors).

The course, provided by Sustainable Building Solutions (SBS) – part of the Travis Perkins Group – and its official partner PPL Training, is unique in that training can be held at dedicated local facilities, making it highly accessible, workable, and low-cost.

The course not only offers an initial six-day course to become a Domestic Energy Assessor, but also a further four days to enable delegates to qualify as a Green Deal Domestic Advisor (Assessor). The course has the added benefit of ensuring all five required domestic energy assessment properties are arranged as part of the City & Guilds full portfolio build.

Eimear Montague, service development manager for SBS, said: “The third New Entrant Green Deal course was run in Northampton after the local Travis Perkins branch identified demand from a number of customers. With the course held in the branch and at local residences, the training process can be much quicker, allowing delegates to get out there and offer Green Deal assessments to homeowners in next to no time.”

SBS was created to provide builders, architects and specifiers with energy-efficient and compliant solutions which are applicable for newbuild, retrofit and repair and maintenance markets.
