The Construction Scotland Innovation Centre (CSIC) is expanding its Low Carbon Learning programme with a second free-to-att end course focused on the fabric and structure of sustainable buildings.
Supported by Skills Development Scotland through more than £175,000 from the National Transition Training Fund, CSIC is off erring valuable training for people in the construction sector looking to upskill and reskill.
Low Carbon Learning: Fabric and Structure will run until July. The course covers four core areas critical to the future of the sector. A fabric-fi rst module will focus on design decisions that can help reduce energy consumption, while a carbon accounting module will highlight the need for environmental data to be calculated for each project. The role of sustainable insulation materials, and mass timber solutions will also form a core part of the course.
Caitriona Jordan, Head of Retrofit Programmes at CSIC, said:
“Reskilling and upskilling will be a core element of the transition to zero carbon, and we want to help provide the knowledge and experience workers need. This new course focuses on the fabric and structure of buildings as well as alternative homegrown construction materials. Increased skills across the sector will help ensure we have a future-proofed workforce that is well-equipped to reduce the carbon footprint of our built environment.”
