Fully Funded Renewable Energy Training Available (2018)

One of the North East’s leading renewable energy specialists, Decerna (Decerna), will be providing full funded accredited training to electricians, plumbers and heating engineers on Solar PV, solar thermal and heat pumps to enable installers to meet requirements set out in the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) throughout 2018.

Based in Northumberland, Decerna is the only company in a 100-mile radius to provide the nationally accredited courses, educating installers on how to safely and efficiently install low carbon technologies. The company is providing free training, on behalf of New College Durham, fully funded by the European Social Fund to help companies and individuals adhere to industry standards.

Taking place at Decerna’s renewable energy training centre in Blyth the training courses are available to sole traders and SMEs. Set up like a concept house, each room has a different type of renewable energy technology – such as Solar PV, Solar Thermal and Heat Pumps – giving trainees a real hands on training experience.

The courses cover regulations, principles of the technologies and the installation and maintenance of renewable energy technologies, allowing any suitably qualified electrician, plumber or heating engineer to diversify into low carbon technologies.

Speaking about the invaluable experience and training courses, Hayley Corney, Renewable Energy Training Coordinator said:

“We are delighted to be offering our many years of expertise in the renewables industry to enable more companies to embrace new technologies and in return reap the benefits whilst also playing a role in helping to build a sustainable environment.

“One of the courses we offer is the heat pump training which we think will be of particular interest as the increasing demand in the Renewable Heat Incentive Scheme offered by the government has led to a skill shortage in the industry.”

Offering training services for seven years, Decernas specialist courses are accredited by LOGIC and EAL, giving those who complete the course an industry recognized qualification. These certified qualifications are accepted by the nationally recognized quality assurance scheme, MCS. The technical courses on offer have been developed in compliance to both LOGIC and MCS requirements. The MCS is an eligibility requirement to receive green energy financial incentives offered by the government such as the Feed-in Tariff and the Renewable Heat Incentive.

Hayley said:

“Our courses are available to individuals and small companies whether they are trying to meet their green energy goals or qualify for government-funded energy schemes. Training can be tailored to suit individual or business goals and relevant accreditations will be awarded in recognition of this. Our passion for the renewable energy industry inspired us to provide these courses to increase the use of renewable energy throughout the UK and build a better and more sustainable future.”

Established in 2012, Narec Distribution Energy was started by the UK National Renewable Energy Centre. Decerna is an organisation that offer strategic, technical and training services within the renewable and low carbon sectors, focusing on the built environment. The purpose of the work is to reduce carbon emissions, alleviate fuel poverty, improve energy security, stimulate economic growth and educate energy users about renewables.

  2. We are so glad to hear about such a wonderful training that is available, because back in my country, we once had one company that really meant to introduce energy technologies to us, but unfortunately they’ve to shoot down and leave, so some of us didn’t had the time to learn, by the way, the company name was (Buchanan Renewable Energy) BRE, for short.
