About the training
The ABBE Level 3 Award in Energy Efficiency for Older and Traditional Buildings is an essential qualification for retrofit, construction and housing professionals, to ensure they are able to deliver PAS 2035 compliant retrofit projects.
Elmhurst’s course has been developed from a British Standard (BS 7913: 2013) which provides guidance on the conservation of historic buildings, and supports awareness of older, traditional and vulnerable buildings (e.g. buildings built prior to 1919).
Upon completion of this course, learners will have the skills, knowledge and qualification to:
- Identify the age, nature, and characteristics of older and traditional buildings, including the methods and materials used in their construction
- Assess the options available to older and traditional buildings when it comes to introducing new energy efficiency measures
- Make recommendations and give advice for the introduction of energy efficiency measures that will work holistically in the property
- Undertake a Significance Assessment in accordance with BS 7913

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.
