The Course

Essential Enlightenment is the second step in the heat Pump Enlightenment range. Detailing exactly what the essential steps are from siting the unit to MCS, DNO applications, plumbing, controls and electrical requirements. The wider heat pump Enlightenment range covers the specifics of heat pump specification, design and commissioning. It gives guidance on the nuances of how to specify for maximum efficiency that all other heat pump training lacks. Rather than the detailed approach of our Mastery course which focuses on theory this course utilises lookup tables and has a more practical approach.
