About the training
This course is available on demand through Elmhurst’s online learning management system. With this training, DEAs will enjoy a thorough introduction of PAS 2035 and the retrofit process, and will also be presented with advanced energy assessment techniques, together with software skills, legislation knowledge and data collection methods.
In addition to this, the course has since been expanded to cover new and evolving areas of whole house retrofit and the work involved in it. This includes, but is not limited to, Phase 4 of the Energy Company Obligation (ECO), revised guidance covering advice to homeowners, and also software demonstrations.

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 the Department for Energy Security and Net Zero, 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.
