Certified Solar Installation Training Course

The Feed-In Tariffs (FITs), and proposed Renewable Heat Incentives (RHI) have dramatically increased demand for Solar PV (photovoltaic) and Solar Thermal installations in the UK.

Epogee has offered Approved Installer Solar Certification, accredited by the SSA (Solar Standards Association) and has trained over 3000 installers over the last 6 years - more than any other renewable energy training provider.

Epogee offers training courses in environmental energy. The Solar PV and  Solar Hot Water (Solar Heating) Courses are currently the most popular - suitable for Solar Installers, Heating Engineers, Plumbers and Novices. We also facilitate 'easy MCS' - a low-cost, low-hassle entry option qualifying your customers for FITs.

We regularly run Resettlement Courses for individuals retiring from The Forces (Army/Navy/RAF), retraining for renewable energy installation.
