Course Details


The ABBE Level 5 Diploma in Retrofit Coordination and Risk Assessment qualification is intended for individuals who are employed in the built environment and construction industry. The Retrofit Coordinator is a mandatory role for all retrofit projects as outlined in PAS2035.

The role of the Retrofit Coordinator is to protect both the client’s interest and the public interest. Retrofit Coordinators need to be qualified to provide end-to-end project coordination (i.e. from the inception of a retrofit project to handover and beyond, including undertaking basic monitoring and evaluation work) and to identify, assess and manage the technical and process risks associated with domestic retrofit projects. The Retrofit Coordinator plays a pivotal and overarching role in the retrofit process. 

Compliance is a mandatory requirement of schemes wanting to operate under TrustMark – the new quality mark for the Retrofit sector. The Retrofit Coordinator will also be responsible for ensuring and claiming compliance with PAS2035. This qualification confirms occupational competence.

This qualification takes a practical approach to learning with a balance of academic assignments, whilst applying the theory in practice with the application of retrofit software case studies based upon real-world projects. This ensures that newly qualified coordinators are ready to fulfil their role confidently when entering the marketplace.

Please note that due to funding requirements, any candidates undertaking this course through the Home Decarbonisation Skills Training Competition (HDSTC) funding, will have until Friday 16th August 2024 to complete the entire qualification. The partially funded version of the course will be available to book until 9th June 2024.
