PAS 2030 training: How to become a Green Deal Installer
One of the biggest opportunities to win work over the coming years...
Can your business afford to miss out? Get your Green Deal Installer training sorted today!
The Green Deal will present a massive opportunity for installers of all sizes; including installers of heating, ventilation, insulation, lighting, glazing and micro-generation/renewable products and systems (see full list at the bottom of this page).
However, unless your business can demonstrate that it meets the required PAS 2030 standards, you will miss out on new work opportunities and may also lose existing customers to competitors who can offer this new source of innovative financing.
PAS 2030 Green deal installer accreditation - why this is essential for your business
The Green Deal will create a massive demand for homeowners, tenants and businesses to upgrade their properties free of charge. This could be because a customer wants to reduce their energy spend and improve the look and feel of their home, or because they need the install (e.g. because their boiler has broken) and would like to use the Green Deal as a way to pay for it to avoid the need the large up front costs (e.g. to install a new energy efficient boiler).
No matter which route a customer takes, to get access to Green Deal work your business must be accredited under the Green Deal scheme and authorised to carry the Green Deal Quality Mark - which is there to ensure that installations are carried out to a high standard by trained and certified Green Deal Installers.
Central to this authorisation is the Green Deal Installer Standard - PAS2030. From as little as £395 +VAT*, we could guide your business through the processes and systems your are required to put into place to gain PAS 2030 Accreditation.
Depending on which measures you intend to install under the Green Deal, you will also be required to demonstrate that your business holds the relevant approved Competent Person Scheme and/or MCS Accreditation and sign u to and adhere to the Green Deal Code of Practice.
What the PAS2030 Green Deal Installer Training & Consultancy Package Includes
Although the solution can be tailored to the individual business's needs, the standard route will involve 3 simple steps:
1. Access to software with the required systems and processes
2. An on site visit from a consultant to help you to implement the processes into your business.
3. On-going telephone and email support to fully prepare you for your final Certification Body visit
How will an accredited installer get access to Green Deal Finance?
