Stopford has led the development of a professional renewable energy course entitled ‘Postgraduate Certificate in Energy & Fuels from Waste’. The course has been developed in partnership with Lancaster University and Peak Associates and aims to address the skills shortage identified in this rapidly evolving sector. Delivery of the course follows a broad curriculum which covers the financial, technical, operational and regulatory aspects of industry. The course is aimed at new entrants and experienced practitioners alike and has provisional accreditation by the CIWM.
The course is packaged into three modules, each delivered in a ‘CPD-style’ in just three days. The three modules, which cover all aspects of the EFFW industry, are delivered in consecutive months. Each module features site visits to operational facilities in the NW region, with presentations delivered by some of the sector’s leading industrial, academic and regulatory experts.
