Delivered by a specialist retrofit consultant Helen Grimshaw of URBED and Julian Tomlin, a householder and Carbon Co-op board member with retrofit experience, these fun sessions will involve presentations, a quiz, group activities as well as a bit of homework.

The training has been designed to comply with the Carbon Literacy Standard and all successful completers will receive a Carbon Literacy Certificate

This training is for volunteers to provide first stop advice and support to other householders. It will not replace the technical expertise provided by industry professionals.
