Whether you’re new to the heating industry or have been involved for years, heat pumps may be a new and daunting subject. It’s easy to become overwhelmed with what the actual requirements are when it comes to the planning and installation of these systems. We have developed a course specifically with you in mind.

Heat Pump Enlightenment for Industry Partners is a course designed for professionals, affiliated with the heating industry, who want to improve their understanding of heat pump systems such as;

  • Local authority net zero professionals
  • Architects and Consultants
  • EPC assessors
  • Retrofit assessors and co-ordinators
  • Wholesalers and distributors

With a focus on how and why we should be electrifying homes, it covers the carbon intensity of electricity generators and how other appliances can be integrated to make use of ‘load shifting’, to help reduce this. In turn, it also addresses why it makes sense to use heat pumps, how they work, types of heat pumps, planning, legislation, plumbing requirements and controls.

The course has been carefully created by industry leading professionals and bridges the gap between heating engineers and industry related professionals, something that all other heat pump training courses lack.
