To achieve the 2050 targets for reducing CO2 emissions, it is often said that 27 million UK homes need to be retrofitted at a rate of one per minute.This assumes that a deep retrofit is installed, and works effectively for at least 25 years.The reality is that shallow retrofit is the norm, and measures are not only piecemeal, but also often counter-productive.

The AECB’s cutting edge advanced retrofit training course is aimed principally at UK construction professionals and those whose role involves decision making around retrofit. To get the most out of taking the full course you will already have good professional knowledge within the construction sector.  You will have a serious interest in how to do advanced energy-efficient retrofit and be wanting to deepen your understanding of building physics and the risks associated with measures, to enable you to make informed decisions.

Homeowners with a desire to drive their own retrofit projects will also find this course useful. While only the more technically minded will be interested in all the detail, there is much useful knowledge even for those who are less technical.

The online course is flexible and practical for the busy students and professionals it is designed for. The course offers up to 35 CPD credits towards the Passivhaus Designer qualification renewal process.

New students can book onto the online course at any point in the year, and pay to join the next webinar at the relevant point in the course as dates are released.
