*About The Home Decarbonisation Skills Training Competition
The Home Decarbonisation Skills Training Competition (HDSTC) is a £9.2m scheme to provide grant awards to a range of training organisations to deliver courses to support the domestic retrofit workforce. The funding is provided by the Department for Energy Security and Net Zero and managed by the Midlands Net Zero Hub.
Appointed training providers will offer training courses to support installers operating across the different domestic retrofit schemes that are run by DESNZ, including Sustainable Warmth Competition and Social Housing Decarbonisation Fund. The training will lead to a recognised qualification across three work packages: insulation, heat pumps, and retrofit accreditation.
These work packages have been designed around anticipated industry requirements and will look to address key shortage areas that currently exist within the supply chain. The competition is expected to deliver approximately 9,000 courses.
Building expertise in the supply chain in this way will also help build capacity and resilience for home energy retrofit delivery more widely, as well as scaling up delivery further as Government works towards meeting its 2030 and 2050 decarbonisation targets.
Tackling climate change remains a priority in the UK, and in 2019, the Government set a legally binding target to achieve net zero greenhouse emissions by 2050. To achieve this goal, more than 30 million homes need to be decarbonised.
This course is ideal for DEAs, Retrofit Assessors and anyone working within the PAS 2035 framework, where Risk Path B & C assessments are required on protected and traditional buildings.
Yes, this qualification has been specifically developed to meet the requirements laid out in PAS 2035 when assessing traditional and protected buildings.
You must be living and working in England to qualify for this funded training.
PAS 2035:2019 is the overarching British standard for Retrofitting dwellings for improved energy efficiency.
Put simply; it provides specifications and guidance for the retrofit of domestic buildings and details best practice guidance for domestic retrofit projects.
What makes PAS 2035 different is the approach to the retrofit process, which is considered to be ‘whole house’ or ‘whole building’ retrofit. This approach considers the home, environment, occupancy and the householders’ improvement objectives when determining the most suitable installation measures. It also eliminates the issue of retrofit work being considered in isolation which can unintentionally damage the overall building performance.
