Questions- Installer skills requirements

1a. Do you agree with our proposal to integrate the installer skills matrix into the Publicly Available Specification (PAS) 2030 and Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) installer standards?
1b. Do you agree with our recommendation that manufacturer training should be in addition to, not instead of, these skills requirements?
1c. If you disagree with these proposals, please let us know why.
2. What are your views on the timing for integrating the installer skills matrix into the PAS 2030 and MCS installer standards? What do you think would be a reasonable timescale for the making the skills matrix mandatory in the standards?
3. What are your views on how installers can meet these skills requirements, in particular the Recognised Prior Learning (RPL) route?
