Installers only have until 31 July to access funding for environmental technology training under the Joint Investment Programme (JIP), warns the National Skills Academy for Environmental Technology.
Training fund deadline looms
Course costs are vastly reduced and in some cases by as much as 50% for the four main renewable technologies - solar thermal, solar photovoltaics, heat pumps and rainwater harvesting.
Training is available through certain National Skills Academy for Environmental Technology hubs with places limited and allocated on a first come, first served basis.
Executive director of the Skills Academy, Cathryn Hickey, said: "JIP, in conjunction with SummitSkills, provides a great incentive for building services professionals looking to up-skill into renewables. Candidates can be sure that training through the Skills Academy is some of the best currently available in the UK; all training is mapped out to National Occupational Standards (NOS) and meets current and future legislative requirements; a must for businesses looking to take advantage of the market opportunities presented by the RHI, FITs and Green Deal."
JIP funded installation training is available through: Bedford College, Blackburn College, Carlisle College, Central Sussex College, College of Northwest London, Hartlepool College, Somerset College, Stephenson College and Stourbridge College.
