Course Description

The demand for your new skills will be high. Figures from the UK Government expect the number of new people required in the UK green energy sector to rise to 50,000 over the next 5 years. The consequences of global warming and the increasing use of green energy into the future will provide you with a secure employment outlook. At PPL we have training many hundreds of people in renewable energy technologies, we were one of the first in the country to offer solar and rainwater courses from Bpec. The unique aspect about this course is the guaranteed work placement with a national green energy company. This can be flexible but is normally of between 2 - 4 weeks of onsite training. After successfully completing the placement students maybe offered contract or permanent work as renewable energy engineer with the placement company. Students complete all the renewable energy courses over a period of about 12 weeks. This can be spilt into weekly blocks when it is convenient for the student to attend for no extra charge. The plumbing NVQ is completed over a 4 to 6 month period while the student is working (and earning!). All students also receive a free comprehensive renewable engineers tool kit. All students who successfully complete this course will be allowed access to future 2008/9 renewable energy courses at a 50% discount as they are developed by the national certification bodies. These include Bpec Solar PV (Electric panels), Bpec Air Source Heat Pumps, Bpec Biomass which are due later in 2008/9. This City & Guilds Renewable energy engineer course package represents a saving of over ?1500 off our normal combined course fees and payment can be made by instalments. After successfully completing the course students go onto start up their own renewable energy company offering solar hot water, heat pumps, rainwater harvesting and general plumbing and electrics. The course is spread over several months to allow the student to complete at a pace which is suitable for them. Students on the City & Guilds Renewable energy engineer course will also have a discount of 50% training fees for the following upcoming courses: Bpec Solar PV Bpec Air Source Heat Pumps Bpec Biomass When these courses are available later in 2008. Students will complete the course in the following order: Block 1 - 8 Weeks full time (can be split into weekly blocks) City & Guilds 6129 Technical Certificate in Plumbing (L2) LOGIC Water regulations certificate LOGIC Building regulations certificate Block 2 - 3 Days Bpec Solar Hot Water Installer LOGIC Unvented hot water certificate Block 3 - 1 Day Bpec Part L Energy Efficiency certificate Block 4 - 5 Days Bpec Part P Electrical Defined Scope Block 5 - 3 Days Bpec Rainwater Harvesting Bpec Ground Source Heat pumps (GSHP) Installer The City & Guilds NVQ 6089 is completed while working and taking the above courses. I will take about 6 months to complete onsite while the student is earning. The course also includes a free renewable energy work placement with a national green energy company. This can be taken at anytime, although it is preferable to do after completing the renewable energy courses. Payment can be made in 3 instalments; a deposit of ?1000 with the remaining balance due in two instalments of ?3802.06 due at the start of the course and week 5 of the 6129.
