Launching Renewables

17th November 2010 saw the official opening of Able Skills newest training centre, one that is completely dedicated to delivering training in various aspects of Renewable Technology:

  • Solar Thermal
  • Solar PV
  • Heat Pumps
  • Rainwater Harvesting
  • Grey Water Recycling
  • Underfloor Heating Design & Installation
  • Renewable Energy Awareness
  • Health & Safety

With biomass, micro wind turbine, heat recovery and air conditioning installation courses planned for early 2011The event was supported by a number of Companies who have provided support and guidance whilst we have been building the Centre and we would like to thank Polypipe, Mitsubishi, Riomay, Domus, Newey & Eyre, Ecoplay, HPS and Veissman for their support at the official opening.Other visitors for the day came from Princes Trust, Quest, Direct News, Bexley Resources, NICEIC, NAPIT, Lambeth College, PureBlue Web Design, Edwardes Bros, CKR Accountancy and Wolseley.The event was attended by the Mayor of Dartford and was covered by Kent on Sunday, YouTube and Natwest press office with support from Natwest Business Manager Tony Knowles.The day went very well, complete with the traditional cutting of ribbon by the Mayor, accompanied by Gary Measures (Director) and Jed Smith (Renewables Training Manager). Everyone had the opportunity to take a stroll around the Centre with trained staff in attendance to give technical information or provide equipment demonstration. With training available over 2 floors there was a lot to see and a lot of questions being fired around and the day was broken up by a buffet lunch for everyone giving people the opportunity to mingle and network.Everyone in attendance was stunned by the sheer volume of training equipment we have available and by the wide variety of courses on offer. The layout of the Centre promotes a healthy training environment, completely open plan with all of the technologies in full view for everyone to see.The day has really put Able Skills on the map as a training provider of choice for anyone looking to diversify into the world of Renewable Technology. We have built great relationships with the likes of Polypipe, Mitsubishi etc and moving forward, have secured routes to market and support networks for installers of green technology.We would like to thank everyone who attended the day, particularly the Mayor of Dartford who came at very short notice and who has a fantastic understanding of Renewable Technologies and a great interest in the subject.Lots of plans were made, courses for the future discussed and development of more partnerships are in the making so the future is bright for Able Skills and all of those who are linked with us in one way or another.
