Course content

Because of the wide range of tasks that take place on Construction sites it is not expected that those who have supervisory responsibilities will all do the same activities; the qualification is structured to ensure that there is a high degree of flexibility within the units available, that look to cover all the different trades involved in domestic energy efficiency.
