Earn your qualification in retrofit coordination with The Retrofit Academy – the home of Retrofit Coordinator training!
The Level 5 Diploma in Retrofit Coordination and Risk Management is the only accredited qualification of its kind in the UK. Developed with the experts behind the PAS 2035 standard and in conjunction with the Open College Network West Midlands, our course is a comprehensive way to learn about managing whole-house retrofit projects.
We have a variety of ways to study for the Diploma. Whether you prefer to study independently, or need extra support, we have a study route to suit your requirements.
Our Fast-Track method of study is ideal for clients wanting a bespoke approach to training. Designed for cohorts of learners (groups of 12 as a minimum), this is a quicker way for learners to achieve the full Level 5 Diploma in a structured, supportive way in around 4 – 6 months.
If you are confident in your ability to self-motivate and comfortable learning on your own, then eLearning is the right choice. The course is made up of 13 modules, which are accessible via our online learning platform. There are videos of lectures, group activities and exercises to review within each module. You’ll need to take a multiple-choice test and submit a written assignment for each module. Your progress will be recorded so both you and the Academy team can see how you’re progressing.
Throughout the course you’ll receive assistance from both your online mentor and technical support, but you won’t have any ‘taught’ sessions. If you feel you’d benefit from some expert guidance in a virtual classroom, you should consider our Blended Learning.
To be eligible for the eLearning course, you must meet three key criteria:
To be accepted onto the eLearning course, you’ll need to provide proof of your qualification(s). You’ll be asked upon application to provide a digital copy of your qualification certificate(s). Photocopies or scanned documents are acceptable.
If you do not hold a Level 4 equivalent but do have some credits in a built environment subject, you’ll only be eligible for our Blended Learning course.
For more detailed information on eligibility, please visit our FAQ page.
We bring the classroom to you! Our 2-day virtual bootcamp sessions are designed to recreate the classroom experience via Zoom. The sessions offer you the opportunity to learn first-hand from our expert tutors by focusing on the key learning objectives of the course. Participants are encouraged to engage with the instructor and interact with fellow learners during the sessions, using them as an opportunity to share best practices and professional experience to support and enhance the learning journey.
As the bootcamps are virtual, you’ll be able to log in from the comfort of your home or office and still benefit from hands-on, instructor-led teaching. You’ll then continue to study modules at your own pace, completing the multiple-choice tests and submitting the written assignments online.
To be eligible for the Blended course, you must meet three key criteria:
To be accepted onto Blended Learning, you’ll need to provide proof of your qualification(s). You’ll be asked upon application to provide a digital copy of your qualification certificate(s). Photocopies or scanned documents are acceptable.
If you’re unable to provide evidence of an appropriate qualification, you can still apply for the Blended course but will need to take a pre-assessment test. The pre-assessment consists of 20 multiple-choice questions, and you’ll need to pass with a rate of 75% or higher to qualify. After submitting your application, a member of our team will be in touch with further details.

Cohorts will benefit from peer support and networking opportunities within their groups.
