One of the first Green Deal assessor courses has been completed with a 100% delegate success rate. All eight candidates on the City & Guilds 6066 course run by PPL Training passed the online assessment, ‘real play’ scenario and classroom-based theory. The four-day course ran from 3rd July and candidates were from various backgrounds including PV installers, electricians, plumbers and heating engineers.
All qualified domestic energy assessors (DEA) are eligible to train to offer Green Deal advice for a domestic dwelling. Successful delegates will then be bale to assess properties to ascertain whether or not they are suitable for Green Deal solutions.
Development director of PPL Training Paul Seddon, who ran the first course, said “The course ran very smoothly and I am especially pleased with how the role play went. This was a feature that was enjoyed by all the candidates due to the additional pressure put on them compared to normal classroom learning.”
PPL will run training nationwide with four-day courses starting in York on 3rd July, 17th July, 31st July, 7th August, 14th August, 4th September and 18th September; courses starting in Reading on 17th July and 21st August; courses starting in Wigan on 10th July, 7th August and 21st August; a course in Edinburgh from 14th August; a course starting in Exeter on 14th August and courses in Aylesford in Kent starting on 31st July; 7th August; 21st August and 18th September.
From July, PPL will be running free evening seminars for those interested in knowing more about the Green Deal in Aylesford on 30th July and in York on 21st August. Evenings will give an overview of the scheme; offer opportunities for businesses and look at the Green Deal requirements.
