NZEB Training


The future of construction is Nearly Zero Energy Building (NZEB) as the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) requires all new buildings from 2021 to meet the NZEB standard. This requires all construction professionals to adhere to the NZEB Standard and to upskill to meet these requirements.

Learn how to construct buildings to meet new NZEB requirements, and come away with the skills to build homes that are more energy efficient, environmentally friendly and cheaper to heat.

Discover a broad range of NZEB programmes on offer including post-apprenticeship and upskilling courses for those already working in the construction trade such as carpenters and plumbers.

Non-trade specific courses including starter programmes and conversion courses are geared towards the likes of NZEB supervisors and other construction professionals who wish to offer sustainable retrofitting services to their clients.

Programmes are currently provided by the four NZEB Centres of Excellence:

Laois & Offaly ETB Waterford & Wexford ETBĀ  Limerick & Clare ETBĀ  Cork ETB

More centres are due to open shortly in Mayo, Sligo & Leitrim ETB and City of Dublin ETB.
