*NB the course is for householders who are already aware of what improvements they require and are looking to take things to the next step, i.e. commission contractors etc. If you are unsure of what needs to be done to make your house energy efficient please commission a Carbon Co-op whole house assessment. Equally, these seminars are not for suppliers or contractors or professionals who offer services in retrofit design and delivery - householders are attending these seminars in order to receive impartial advice not sales pitches and we are happy to separately offer CPD services for professionals.
