This course is delivered through our partner Retrofit Academy.
This Level 5 Diploma provides a comprehensive overview of key domestic retrofit processes and best practices. Applicants will learn the essential knowledge and skills needed to perform the role of Retrofit Coordinator.
When you sign up to the course you will get access to The Retrofit Academy Learner Management System; our state-of-the-art eLearning platform through which the course is delivered and your assignments are submitted.
To complete your qualification you will need to complete 13 modules and deliver a case study (verbal presentation) to your assessor, in order to demonstrate your competence to practice as a Retrofit Coordinator. All assessors are experienced Retrofit Coordinators themselves who are qualified to provide you with a solid grounding in the theory and practice of domestic retrofit, and help you understand the pathway to PAS 2035 compliance.
As well as assessing your assignments, our expert assessors are on-hand to offer you invaluable guidance and feedback on your progress.
150 hours of guided study and assignments.
This course covers:
Learning the skills and knowledge required for the design, assessment, and project management of domestic refurbishment projects.
Understanding the technical factors that influence the energy efficiency and heat loss of domestic buildings.
Learning how to reduce the instances of common defects and failures that can hinder retrofit projects.
To be eligible for the Level 5 course, there are three requirements you must meet:
* Professional Competencies
* Built Environment Experience
For our Essential Online and Essentials Classroom packages (previously ‘Blended Learning’), this carries a minimum requirement of 12 Level 3 credits in a built environment subject.
It will usually tell you how many credits your qualification carries on your certificate. A university degree is usually at Level 5 or 6, but the subject must be relevant to the built environment. Domestic Energy Assessors usually hold a Level 3 qualification that carries sufficient credits.
In addition to the relevant qualifications, you will also need to be competent in certain areas expected by a built environment professional, as defined by the PAS 2035 standard. We do not teach these things as part of the course, so you will need to have a firm grasp on concepts such as:
* Project management including programming and advising on the budget
* Assessing and managing technical and procedural risks
* Making applications for statutory approvals
* Managing a tender process to identify and appoint Retrofit Installer(s)
* Negotiating contracts
* Ensuring effective communication between teams
* Administering contracts
* Inspecting work to check progress, quality and compliance
* Overseeing testing and commissioning
* Overseeing the handover of the project on completion
* Adjudicating any disputes
* Making defects inspections and arranging any necessary remedial works
* Built Environment Experience
Finally, you need to have at least two years’ experience of construction management in the built environment and have worked on retrofit or energy efficiency projects. We do not require this to be in any specific capacity.
On sucessful completion of this course you will gain a certificate from the Retrofit Academy.
I recently attended an Asbestos Awareness course ran by Phil and I must say it exceeded my expectations. I learned a great deal about ACM's, its history, and how to manage it etc. Having been in the USA for 8 years it was great to come back and see huge progress in this area. I will be recommending this course delivery by Expedient to all of my team.

Expedient staff always try to go the extra mile to assist with any late or urgent training requests that we might have. I have always received great feedback and assistance from staff at Expedient while trying to arrange any courses. Thank you!
I have dealt with Expedient Training Services Limited for many years during which time they have provided us with an excellent service in the areas of Health and Safety and Plant Training. The trainers are well qualified, the centre is accredited and they offer guidance and support before and after the training event. Being familiar with our work and our premises and having built up a partnership over time, Expedient Training Services are the perfect training provider for us. Their training expertise is well documented and reliable. I can confidently recommend Expedient Training Services as a solid and reliable supplier, and experts in their field.

Everything from my initial enquiry to the booking has been dealt with professionally and every member of the team I have spoken with has been very friendly and have gone over and above to meet my training needs.
Claire and all her team, in particular Maria, made our annual training event a success. Delivering 15 different courses , over 2 weeks for 21 staff is a huge task. No request was too difficult and all our training aims and objectives for this year were met. The feedback from our staff has been all positive. This has been the fourth successful year of training with Expedient and we intend to carry on using their services in the future. Many thanks for making the very complicated training programme a success.
We have been using Expedient for over 5 years now.; initially they delivered Over Head Crane Training and Abrasive Wheels. We found their office staff very knowledgeable and helpful when deciding which training courses would best suit our needs and requirements. Expedient are always able to deliver on-site training and often at short notice. Their trainers are very competent in their field and this is reflected in the standard of output by the workforce. Since then we have arranged numerous other training courses including Train the Trainer which has been valuable to our business needs. I would have no hesitation when recommending Expedient to an organisation looking for a solid, all round training provider.
