This training package is an introductory suite of lessons to help you start to understand the Whole House Retrofit (WHR) approach. You’ll learn all about the key issues of sustainable retrofit, making buildings more energy efficient, comfortable and healthy. Futureproof courses balance theory and practice to ensure you can use your knowledge straight away. And if you work on both retrofit and newbuild projects, you will find that much of the content of the lessons applies to both types of construction.
The online course comprises 10 one-hour video training sessions led by trainers from The Green Register’s expert team on the key topics within WHR. During the course, there are various opportunities to check your learning and you are encouraged to access the additional reference information provided to gain the maximum benefit from the training package and to expand your knowledge.
A short assessment follows each lesson to help you get the most from your learning and when the course is successfully completed, you’ll be awarded a certificate. The course is expected to take around 10+ hours to complete and can be accessed through our e-learning platform to suit your schedule.
All of the topics covered by Futureproof Essentials provide vital information for you and your team to apply directly to your own retrofit – and in many cases, newbuild – projects for more effective, higher performing buildings that are fit for the future.
