Energy Companies Obligation (ECO) Training

Preparing you for ECO 2.

Stroma Certification’s Energy Companies Obligation (ECO) Training is designed to help the Green Deal industry reach a wider range of customers. We provide face-to-face training aimed at Green Deal Advisors, Installers and Providers.

In this half-day structured course, Stroma Certification explains the ECO policies and subsidies available (including CERO, CSCO and HHCRO). You will learn about the methodology for ECO eligibility checks, data collection and reporting. Finally you’ll use our BRE-approved ECO software and discover how to create compliant ECO reports.


Applicants to our ECO training are provided with access to Stroma Certification’s ECO software, including our powerful ECO Engine. The software is approved by the BRE, meaning it produces compliant ECO scoring calculations in line with the Ofgem requirements for ECO 2.

You’ll learn how to use the ECO software to identify eligible households and factor ECO calculations into Green Deal assessments. All of this meets the end goal of delivering better-value Green Deal Plans to customers.
