Green Installation & Maintenance Courses

Domestic, Commercial and Industrial Electric Vehicle Charging Installation

The government’s commitment to allocate £1.6 billion to further expand the UK’s charging network – with around 300,000 public chargers expected to be available by 2030 – means the industry needs competent installers.

The City & Guilds 2021-31 course has been designed to standardise practices for manufacturers, suppliers and installers; it reflects the future requirements of this exciting new industry by helping to reduce the risk of unsafe and inefficient practices.

Installation and Maintenance of Small Scale Solar Photovoltaic Systems

The solar power market is growing fast and if you are an electrician or domestic installer who would like to expand your skill set to include the installation of Solar Photovoltaic panel systems, then this course could be right for you.

This three-day Level 3 course will cover the requirements to install, commission, and hand over small-scale solar photovoltaic systems. Unlike many other photovoltaic courses, this includes the practical installation of Solar Panels to a roof.

The Installation and Maintenance of Heat Pump Systems (Non-Refrigeration Circuits)

For those using oil, electricity, liquid gas or solid fuels to heat their home, the installation of a heat pump may be a good way of reducing their carbon footprint and saving money on energy bills.

It is these financial and environmental benefits which have fuelled a surge in popularity for domestic heat pump installation – particularly over the last decade – and a subsequent demand for qualified installation and maintenance operatives.

This Level 3 short course is fully recognised by many accreditation bodies of the Microgeneration Certification Scheme.

Modern Methods of Construction

Introduction to Modern Methods of Construction (MMC)

Awareness and adoption of Modern Methods of Construction (MMC) can empower housing providers with tools to address challenges in the construction industry, improve efficiency, reduce costs, and deliver high-quality, sustainable homes to meet the demands of the modern housing market.

Weymouth College will be offering a two-day fully-funded course for housing sector clients and stakeholders to gain a better understanding of the MMC approach, learning from those who have been delivering MMC homes for social housing providers and helping to develop a greater awareness of MMC for the residential sector.
