Stroma Certification’s Retrofit Coordinator Scheme

Stroma Certification’s Retrofit Coordinator Certification scheme is approved by TrustMark. It provides certification for Retrofit Coordinators to perform a project management role and produce Retrofit Plans in line with PAS 2035. The PAS 2035: 2019 is the specification for the energy retrofit of domestic buildings. There is considerable excitement in the energy and retrofit markets about this role, as we move towards the government’s intended date of 2050 for a carbon neutral UK and EPC C by 2035.

Why join our Stroma Retrofit Coordinator Scheme?

Stroma Certification is highly experienced in the energy assessment industry – we were at the forefront of ECO when it launched and have a vast experience of the relationships and workflows of ECO. Stroma are again at the forefront of the transition of ECO3 to adopt PAS 2035. and can assist Coordinator members with queries and questions during the formative stages of the PAS 2035 adoption into ECO3.

If, as an individual, you are at least 75% through your RFC training with the Retrofit Academy, we can certify you. There is then a 3 month period, by which the full qualification must be gained.
