Electrical Green Energy Training To Aid Employment

Following the recent coalition Government budget announcement that they plan to create a green investment bank, and intention to bring forward private investment in clean energy and green technologies, many commentators are predicting that the green industry could be a major driving force in the UK's economic recovery.The introduction of renewable technologies like PV Solar and Ground Source Heat Pumps shows signs that the sector is growing within the UK, but still needs support from the government to both help increase awareness of its cost cutting and energy saving benefits for the country's householders and drive private sector investment.Recently, the NICEIC- the UK's electrical installation organisation- stated that electricians training today will have to learn to install the new renewable technologies and clean energy products, if Government targets are to be met in the next 10 years.Although the majority of renewable technologies can be installed on most properties within the UK, not every type will be suitable for each property design.Key to supplying the required trained electricians competent to specify and install green energy source appliances will be the leading, approved training centres like AbleSkills, where dedicated training facilities for 'green' energy assessment and installation have been specifically created to deliver green energy courses to men and women undertaking training to become an electrician. The first foot on their career ladder to enter the electrical industry is the universally recognised City & Guilds NVQ 2330, Level 2 qualification.For current practicing and qualified electricians who recognize the urgent requirements for a change in the way electricity reaches domestic household, the City & Guilds 2372 Level 3 is recommended.Through the NICEICs Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MSS), Able Skills can ensure that registered installers of Ground and Air Source Heat pumps can provide access to Government grants for their customers.The Department for Business Enterprise and Regulatory Reform (BERR) has designed the MSS to create the principle blueprint that installers and product manufacturers can follow to install environmental technologies.
