Solar panel training

MID Sussex companies can benefit from specialist training in sustainable and renewable energy.

Central Sussex College has developed a range of new courses to reduce carbon emissions and training covers the installation of solar thermal and solar photovoltaic panels to meet new qualification standards of competency.

Further developments will cover the installation and maintenance of heat source pumps, rain water harvesting and the use of small scale wind turbines.

Dean Wynter, Director of the Faculty of Construction at the College, said: “The European Union set a target of incorporating 20 per cent renewables into its energy mix by 2020.

“By offering the full range of renewable technologies, Central Sussex College can help companies to play their part in reducing carbon emissions and using sustainable energy, which will be a key asset in the coming years and keep them ahead of their competitors.”

Training will be based at the college’s Burgess Hill campus on the Victoria Business Park. Please call Heather Driver for further details on 01293 442344.
