Course Description

Certificate in Energy Conservation and Environmental Services

Atlantic Technological University, Galway-Mayo



The programme aims to afford advanced experience and training to fulfil, in part, the onerous and challenging roles, duties and responsibilities associated with a limited range of Built Environment Regulations in the Irish Construction Industry

This certificate is designed for a multidisciplinary cohort across the built environment disciplines e.g. Architecture, Engineering, Building Surveying, Architectural Technology, and Construction Management, among others. A multi-disciplinary cohort will be beneficial to the programme as it will provide a cross-pollination of ideas, shared experiences and appreciation for each others roles and responsibilities in the Built Environment.

The programme is designed to meet the postgraduate and continuing professional development needs of these disciplines, to develop competence in the specialist area of Energy Conservation and Environmental Services by facilitating knowledge gained through training and applied experience.

It will be particularly beneficial to new entrant graduates who have recently entered the work force in the last one to three years. It will also be beneficial to lifelong learners and more experienced professionals as Continuing Professional Development, up-skilling, retraining, and as a refresher course. Furthermore, the programme can be undertaken on a module-by-module basis, if so desired, by accumulating credits.

It will also be possible to complete the Certificate and/or Postgraduate Diploma and/or MSc in Built Environment Regulation at some point in the future. This flexibility is designed to accommodate an adult working population. The difference between this qualification and the Masters, Postgraduate Diploma, and Certificate in Built Environment Regulation is that there is no research capstone module requirement and only Technical Guidance Documents relevant to Energy Conservation and Environmental Services, along with the relevant Irish and/or British Standards are covered in the syllabus.

The Certificate in Energy Conservation and Environmental Services aims to address current building regulation requirements for nearly zero energy buildings and retrofit of existing housing stock. This is an area of upskilling which is in demand in the construction industry.

The objectives of the programme are

To address the industry-led demand for regulatory knowledge, experience, and training in the areas of Energy Conservation and Environmental Services

To explore new buildings and buildings other than dwellings, to a building regulation compliance standard

To explore retrofit of existing buildings to a building regulation compliance standard
