A-1 Technical Training, the training division of Logis-Tech Associates, is offering a distance-learning course in renewable energy systems designed to help candidates to make accurate, valid comparisons between renewable technologies when solving energy-related problems.

The Professional Development Award (PDA) in Renewable Energy Systems programme — accredited by the Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA) and recognised worldwide — is particularly targeted at those working with little time to spare, those who work irregular hours, offshore workers, night-shift workers and those working in remote locations or overseas.

The course can be studied anywhere in the world, at any time, at the student’s own pace. It is designed to help candidates understand current and future trends in energy production, sustainability and energy conservation issues and the role that renewable energy technologies could play in meeting energy demands and in limiting global environmental damage.

Course information

Entry requirements

  • The candidate must have an HNC/HND in Engineering Systems or an HNC/HND in Mechatronics
  • Alternatively, he or she must have a suitable multidisciplinary degree or other awards deemed equivalent to the above
  • Those who have another HNC Engineering qualification in areas such as electronics, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering or manufacturing engineering may partially meet the requirements but may have to undertake an additional bridging programme

Credit structure

  • Mandatory Section: Overview of Energy Use (two credits); Technology (two credits)
  • Optional Section: Microgeneration Systems (one credit); Wind Power (one credit); other modules to follow

Logis Tech Associates

Logis-Tech Associates are suppliers to many types of industries ofultrasonic leak detector sets. 

Ultrasonic leak detectors are easy-to-use, energy-saving, cost-effective detectors. They are instruments that serve two major functions:

Ultrasonic leak detector detection 

  • Air leak in compressed air systems
  • Leaks in tanks
  • Pipe system leaks
  • Leaks in pressure and vacuum systems
  • Leaks in steam traps* leaking valves

Mechanical detection

  • Malfunctions or noise in bearings
  • Detection of worn gears and all movable mechanical parts.

Engineering programmes by distance learning 

Logis-Tech Associates also has a sub-division, A-1 Technical Training, an approved learning provider who deliver open/distance learning highernational certificate engineering training courses worldwide (SQA (Scottish Qualifications Authority) accredited) in several engineering disciplines.
