News: Proud to announce we are work­ing with GTEC to deliv­er dis­count­ed heat pump training

Gas Centre

We are proud to announce that we are work­ing with GTEC to deliv­er heav­i­ly dis­count­ed heat pump train­ing at our Bas­ford cam­pus. Work­ing with these part­ners is a great exam­ple of skills being devel­oped in direct response to employ­er demand and the eco­nom­ic need in Nottingham. 

The train­ing with GTEC pro­vides an amaz­ing oppor­tu­ni­ty to get involved in this grow­ing mar­ket­place. Deliv­ered by lead­ing renew­ables train­ing provider, GTEC, fund­ing means that a pack­age of cours­es that would usu­al­ly cost £965 now costs just £140 (+ VAT)! 

For a lim­it­ed time only*, plumb­ing and heat­ing trades­peo­ple in Not­ting­ham (who live with­in the NG1 to NG16 post­codes) can access heav­i­ly dis­count­ed heat pump train­ing, pro­vid­ing an amaz­ing oppor­tu­ni­ty to get involved in this grow­ing marketplace. 

2022 is set to be a big year for Air Source Heat Pumps (ASH­Ps) with The Boil­er Upgrade Scheme launch­ing in April, which will offer home­own­ers up to £5,000 towards the cost of an ASHP. With recent announce­ments about the ris­ing cost of ener­gy bills, more con­sumers will be look­ing for low cost, low car­bon ways to heat and pow­er their homes – ASH­Ps can offer sig­nif­i­cant sav­ings for the right property. 

By get­ting the train­ing done now, installers in Not­ting­ham will be ready to take advan­tage of the demand in the area. So don’t hes­i­tate and ensure you use the dis­count code HPd3al to secure your discount.

*Train­ing must be com­plet­ed by the end of March 2022

What train­ing is on offer? 

Air Source Heat Pump train­ing, plus WRAS Water Reg­u­la­tions and Ener­gy Effi­cien­cy for Domes­tic Heat­ing (the lat­ter two qual­i­fi­ca­tions are option­al). All three cours­es have a val­ue of £965VAT

The heat pump train­ing is designed for can­di­dates with expe­ri­ence in the plumb­ing and/​or heat­ing sec­tors, such as gas installers and plumbers. Some can­di­dates may already have the WRAS and ener­gy effi­cien­cy qual­i­fi­ca­tions, in which case they can just under­take the ASHP course. 

All 3 qual­i­fi­ca­tions help to become part of the Micro­gen­er­a­tion Cer­ti­fi­ca­tion Scheme (MCS). For home­own­ers to access the Boil­er Upgrade Scheme, they must choose an MCS cer­ti­fied busi­ness to under­take the heat pump installation. 

End user demand is grow­ing, spurred on by the Boil­er Upgrade Scheme, a desire to go green’ and reduce ener­gy bills. At the moment, there are sim­ply not enough trained engi­neers to meet the government’s tar­get of 600,000 heat pumps installed annu­al­ly by 2028

Plumb­ing and heat­ing installers in Not­ting­ham who take advan­tage of this heav­i­ly dis­count­ed train­ing can take their place in this emerg­ing mar­ket­place, future proof­ing busi­ness’ as we move away from fos­sil fuels.
