EcoSkies unveils Green Deal Advisor training

One national training company is throwing its support behind the Green Deal by bringing out new courses to skill up the Green Deal Advisors crucial to the scheme.

With the Green Deal approaching its October 2012 launch, national training company EcoSkies has announced the unveiling of its comprehensive new Green Deal Advisor courses.

The Green Deal is one of the government’s flagship renewable energy initiatives, with the mission of upgrading the UK’s notoriously draughty housing stock. The scheme will loan customers up to £10,000 for upgrading insulation and other energy efficiency measures, with the amount of the loan tied to the cost of the upgrades.

Before a customer receives funds from the Green Deal scheme their property will be inspected by a Green Deal Advisor. The Advisor will assess energy performance, draw up a list of recommended improvements, and connect with the Green Deal Provider to secure financing for the upgrades.

This will require a raft of new Green Deal Advisors to be trained. Trainees who are already qualified Domestic Energy Assessors (DEAs) will be able to top up their qualification at EcoSkies with a five day course, rather than undergoing a full 10 day course.
