Our training courses are aimed at individuals who are looking to move in to a career in the renewable energy sector, or enhance their career within it.

Praahanth asked:

How can we ship to employees about validation.


Hi Praahanth, The Galileo Master Certificate is an internationally recognised certificate within the Renewable Energy Industry. It shows that the participant has worked towards a certain amount of CPD hours in that subject area and has a thorough understanding and competency at that level. If the courses are completed through distance learning, then a digital copy of the GMC for each course will be sent to the participant upon passing each exam. I hope this helps! Deborah

What does study method mean?

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as ABC Awards and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
