About Us

Find your course today

The Energy Academy opened its doors late in 2017. Building work started in early 2017, which transformed a disused warehouse into a state-of-the-art training centre, which currently includes large classrooms, a computer suite, training area, domestic assessment area and a well equipped canteen.

We are located on Eurolink Industrial Estate in Sittingbourne, Kent, which has great links to both the M2 and M20. We offer a range of gas, plumbing, oil and electrical courses.

Our Mission

We pride ourselves on offering a relaxed and friendly atmosphere for everyone as we know that assessments can be a very stressful time. We also want to build a relationship with you, allowing us to follow you throughout your career and guide you through future training.

Our Promise

We deliver excellent training that covers the theory that is required. We also provide as much practical training as possible because we know that the majority of professionals learn from using their hands. So, whatever your training requirements, we will provide you with an excellent service from the moment you enquire until you receive your certificate.
