This renewable energy foundation course has been developed by NICEIC in partnership with Virtual College to enable learners to satisfy the requirements of the City & Guilds 2399-01 scheme without spending 2 days in the classroom. With alternative energy sources being a high priority on the Government's schedule, the demand for installation on the above technologies is growing and with it, the demand for highly skilled and qualified individuals who can install and maintain these systems. With the introduction of Feed in Tariffs and the increase in demand of alternative sources of energy, there has never been a better time to participate in the Renewable Technology revolution. This e-learning course will give you the foundation knowledge from which you can base your renewable energy career. The knowledge gained will be ideal for advising potential clients on the best installation to meet their requirements. This module is currently a mandatory unit for a complete 2399 qualification.

Your purchase includes:

  • Online e-learning course (login emailed automatically on completion of online sales purchase)
  • Online revision test (automatically enabled on completion of course)
