Retrofit Academy Centre of Excellence

The Retrofit Academy Centre of Excellence is here to support industry growth and raise standards. 

Our members are individuals, companies and not for profits who want to achieve excellence in whole house retrofit. As the industry adapts to BSI PAS 2035, our focus area is PAS into Practice.

Some of the key Centre of Excellence services include training, working groups, a knowledge portal, online events, product and project reviews, CPD programmes, and the Retrobook supply chain connection app.

  • Understanding Domestic Retrofit

    Your fully funded introduction to Domestic Retrofit

    The Retrofit Academy CIC has been awarded funding under the Green Homes Grant (GHG) Skills Training Competition to train 1,000 new and existing energy efficiency installers in Understanding Domestic Retrofit.

    Candidates will be enrolled onto the NOCN Level 2 Award in Understanding Domestic Retrofit. This is a nationally recognised qualification and a stepping-stone to securing employment in this rapidly growing market.

  • Retrofit Coordinator

    The Retrofit Academy CIC is the only Approved Provider of the Open College Network West Midlands Level 5 Diploma in Retrofit Coordination and Risk Management.

  • What is it and what does it mean for you?

    PAS 2035 is set to have a huge impact on the Retrofit industry.

    Our downloadable white paper helps you gauge and understand the impact.

  • Local Authority Toolkit

    Local Authorities are leading the charge towards whole house retrofit through the LADs scheme. 

    This guide provides local authorities and social landlords with the tools they need to embrace PAS 2035.

  • Our guide builds upon our previous Guide, PAS 2035 Explained, which sets out what the new Standards are attempting to do and how the new roles interrelate.

    It is intended to be used by people fulfilling one of those three roles, as well as their employers and the accreditation schemes of which they are members.

  • “I will now think of the install as part of a whole package rather than a single measure. What impact it will have on a building and how it can be altered to better fit with other measures either present or potential.”


  • “The course gave me new insights into testing, monitoring and evaluation. This will have an immediate positive impact on how we collect data and how it will collate with other potential improvements.”

  • “Following several challenging years of delivering the Energy Company Obligation this course has gone a long way in re-igniting my passion for domestic energy efficiency.”
