ABBE Diploma in Retrofit Coordination and Risk Assessment – Level 5

Level 5
Part Time
Middlehaven (Main Building)

Course overview

The ABBE Level 5 Diploma in Retrofit Coordination and Risk Management 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. This qualification meets the standards for domestic retrofit co-ordinators as outlined in PAS 2035 and the Each Home Counts Quality Mark.

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 role.

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 PAS 2035.

This qualification confirms occupational competence.
