Narec Distributed Energy are providing a range of fully funded renewable energy training courses for businesses based in North East England. Training includes industry standard courses on the installation and maintenance of technologies (photovoltaics, solar thermal, heat pump and biomass), introductions to technologies, and community energy courses. The courses are offered to small-medium sized businesses (<250 employees) and sole traders.

The training is funded through a combination of the “European Regional Development Fund”, the “European Social Fund”, the UK Government’s “Skills Funding Agency” and some other sources. The funding is handled regionally in three sub-regional projects by Sunderland City Council, Hartlepool Borough Council and Northumberland County Council’s subsidiary company Business Northumberland. Different courses are offered based on where each company or sole trader is based. Courses are available for Northumberland, Sunderland and Tees Valley postcode based businesses, who meet a set of eligibility criteria.
