OCVC goes environmental
In July 2009, Bicester was selected by the Government to be the site of a new eco town. This means that over the next 20 years, over 6,000 carbon-neutral homes will be developed around Bicester.
Now is the time to train or upskill.
And OCVC can help you do it. See all our Environmental technology courses.
If you work in the construction, plumbing, gas, heating and ventilation, refrigeration or electrical trades, talk to us about training in building services engineering and environmental technologies.
We have a new, expanding range of Environmental Technology courses available right now. Call 01865 550 887 to ask about any of the following:

Our demand-driven training uses the latest facilities, products, technology and industry knowledge to match employers’ and workers’ needs with local industry demands.
Our Bicester campus has a solar thermal hot water training room and a working solar panel suite. In Blackbird Leys we have a similar set up including photovoltaics. At both campuses, we deliver environmental awareness training.
With our training, you can become a registered installer.
Our training meets the National Occupational Standards (NOS) and is recorded on the National Skills Academy register, which will be accessible by the public later this year. The National Skills Academy for Environmental Technologies supports the delivery of accredited environmental technologies training, recognised by the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) for industry.
This means you can become MCSaccredited, which is what the industry demands.
Consumers who want to take advantage of the Feed-in-Tariffs (FiTs) and other financial incentives available through the Green Deal and other Government initiatives must use MCSaccredited trained installers to fit their environmental technologies.
Talk to us today to find out how you can upskill and become MCSaccredited through our new Environmental Technology courses.
