Future Ready Homes Futureproof Training

Event Details

 Registration is closed for this event
The Future Ready Homes initiative is offering funded places on the Futureproof Essentials Training - a tried and tested course in sustainable retrofit and new-build skills from The Green Register.


About this opportunity

In the face of rising heating bills and carbon emissions targets, more and more homeowners want to embark on a whole house retrofit, or want to know that any building work they have done makes sense within a long-term energy strategy. Yet many struggle to find the expertise they need nearby.

Future Ready Homes is an Energy Redress Scheme funded initiative led by Marches Energy Agency. The project aims to help householders in Shropshire, Herefordshire and Powys make their homes warmer, healthier, and greener. Around 350 householders will be recruited and surveyed, creating a pipeline of retrofit work for local contractors.

If you meet the eligibility criteria (see below), you can apply for a 100% discount code on the course fee and your place will be funded by the Energy Redress Scheme.

About the training

Futureproof Essentials is a clear and concise introduction to all the key principles of sustainable construction – both retrofit and newbuild - to help builders and building professionals to get into retrofit and sustainable construction through a tried-and-tested course from The Green Register.

The training is online, you do it in your own time and we’ll supplement it with some face-to-face, hands-on sessions to put your learning into practice.

The full course fee is £299. This course is free with the Future Ready Homes Discount Code.
