Build your Decarbonisation PAS Team………
NetRet Group has been established to provide PAS 2030:2035 Certification, TrustMark Registration, Competence, Qualifications and the Support needed for the housing sector, contractors, individuals and self-employed across the UK to deliver energy saving works to homes.
We work with the Housing Sector to support contractors in gaining certification to the most recent and relevant PAS 2030 measures to work on government-funded workstreams such as Optimised Retrofit Programme (ORP) - and Energy Company Obligation (ECO) – Social Housing Decarbonisation Fund.
In addition, we collaborate with local colleges in Wales and throughout the UK to offer a valuable opportunity for individuals seeking to enhance their qualifications through National Vocational Qualifications (NVQ) short courses and recognised retrofit qualifications. Through several funding streams, we provide a pathway for personnel to upskill, offering training, support, and certification. Funding support is also available to assist in accessing these resources.
As a Group, we employ staff with over 15 years’ experience within the Energy Efficiency Market and Insulation sector.
Decarbonisation/Retrofit work has a number of different disciplines. NetRet can provide all the necessary training and qualifications that are required and they’re all designed to be flexible to fit around work commitments.
The UK Government scheme for residential retrofit in the UK is through a government-endorsed high-quality framework of technical standards within domestic retrofit, known as PAS 2030:2019.
Our qualifications are designed to help you meet the requirements of delivering accredited retrofit/decarbonisation work including those projects requiring PAS and/or TrustMark certification.
PAS provides a framework for contractors, property owners, asset managers, material manufacturers, estate managers, and funders to utilise. A fixed reference point and the essential common language for all stakeholders.
NetRet also offers the following Qualifications and Training through our Sustainability Centre in Partnership with Robert Price:

PAS 2030 is a British Standards Institute (BSI) specification which outlines the requirements for installing, commissioning, and handing over energy efficiency measures (EEMs) for domestic retrofit projects.
The current PAS 2030:2019 specification was released in June 2019 and sits alongside PAS 2035 ‘Retrofitting dwellings for improved energy efficiency’. PAS 2030 is predominantly a contractor/installer applicable specification as it deals with installing, commissioning, and handing over decarbonisation/retrofit projects. To deliver these projects the contractor/installer will need to be PAS Accredited (click here) or work under our NetRet PAS Umbrella. PAS 2035 is associated more with the Built Environment professional and is concerned with identification and evaluation of improvement options (energy efficiency measures, or EEMs); design and specification of EEMs (whether individual measures or packages of multiple measures); and monitoring and evaluation of retrofit projects. Unlike PAS 2030, there is no Accreditation for PAS2035, however there’s a requirement for certain certified professionals including Retrofit Assessor, Retrofit Coordinator and Retrofit Installer. These roles are usually separated from the contractor and can be delivered by certified individuals, surveying companies, Housing Associations, Local Authorities etc. To find out more including funded (in some case 100% funding) please click here.
In achieving PAS 2030 certification a contractor/installer must have a Quality Management System (QMS) in place that ensures installations of a high standard. The QMS needs to cover things such as:

They need a simple and accessible process to demonstrate their skills and competency, to open opportunities for future initiatives and the creation of a sustainable market.
The drive to meet net-zero targets combined with on-going increases in energy prices means that there is now a significant demand for businesses that can carry out quality retrofit energy efficiency works to homes.
The TrustMark Scheme supports the construction sector with its appetite to move to more formal licensing, to drive better and consistent outcomes in areas of currently ‘unregulated’ delivery.
The TrustMark Scheme enables energy efficiency improvement works which support a fabric first, whole house approach to be delivered by a competent business within a flexible.
