Read in more detail: WHAT IS THE FES COURSE?

QualiBuild piloted a Foundation Energy Skills (FES) Programme for 200 building construction workers during 2015 and 2016.With cooperation of the QualiBuild partners and certain training bodies. The FES training course will continue to be rolled out on an interim short term basis by LIT and ITB, until such time that a training body such as the ETBs can take over the programme, run and manage the course nationally on a long term basis. This training is essential to ensure that nZEB quality buildings are completed.
