Narec Distributed Energy is once more offering fully funded accredited renewable energy related training courses at our training centre in Blyth, Northumberland. This will enable heating engineers and electricians, as well as existing renewable energy companies, to upskill their staff. Of particular interest for many is the heat pump training, as increases in the Renewable Heat Incentive are causing a skills shortage within this industry.
