DCH’s Direct Maintenance Team, who work across Devon, are teaming up with the South West Energy Centre at South Devon College to take part in the latest course of renewable technologies training.

 

This unique training partnership will deliver training in Solar Thermal and Solar PhotoVoltaic (P.V.) installation and maintenance in a brand new facility at the energy centre and was established due to increased demand in maintenance engineers enhancing their skills in renewable technologies.

The training will give them specialist skills to be able to maintain and repair renewable technologies in homes as increasingly more and more new homes are being built with technologies which are designed to reduce overall running costs for residents.

 

Neil Hayman Safety, Support & Training Manager at DCH said: “As a housing association we are committed to managing our impact on the environment and to producing sustainable homes that are accessible, inclusive and beneficial for all. We have a responsibility to focus on affordable warmth and tackle instances of fuel poverty. We are delighted to be working with South Devon College to deliver training to our staff that will allow us to respond even more effectively to our residents’ needs and the maintenance of their homes.”

 

Patrick Mc Nevin, Director of the South West Energy at South Devon College said: “We are delighted to be working with DCH to provide specialist training on renewable technologies, which will allow their engineers to be more efficient when dealing with issues on the district. I would encourage all businesses to make sure their staff are fully up to date with the latest technologies. The South West Energy Centre can provide a range of training courses to suit all needs in a new state of the art venue.”

Providing DCH’s in house teams with the expertise and skills on renewable systems results in greater efficiencies for the organisation and residents, highly trained technicians will introduce and maintain climate-friendly technologies. The training will be rolled out across DCH’s workforce in future.
