This course gives you the knowledge and skills you need to become a Retrofit Coordinator; a crucial new role required by PAS2035 standards. Ideal for built environment professionals looking to further their career managing retrofit projects.

The role of the Retrofit Coordinator was introduced by PAS2035, and is mandatory on all domestic retrofit projects delivered under TrustMark. TrustMark is the recognised Quality Mark for the energy efficiency sector and compliance with TrustMark and PAS 2035 is required by government-funded schemes

Central to PAS2035, the role protects homeowners and clients by managing projects in compliance with the Standard. Without Retrofit Coordinators, there is no assurance that the high standards required and vast volume of installs will be reached, and the effects of that would be felt globally.

On completion of this qualification, you will be able to apply to be a registered Retrofit Coordinator via an application to a TrustMark approved Retrofit Coordinator Scheme Provider.
