Ferroli has launched a UK-wide initiative for installers to receive training on the high-efficiency Modena HE boiler, beginning with six training centres and colleges in the North and North-east.
Four specialist gas training centres and two further education colleges in Hull, Blackpool, Atherton, Colne, Sunderland and Bradford are running regular dates for familiarisation and training sessions on fully working Modena HE 27c boilers.
More centres in the midlands and south are due to open in 2013.
Ferroli northern key account manager Paul Megginson said: “This gives installers an easily manageable opportunity to see the Modena HE boiler in operating mode rather than just dry in the merchant showroom.”
Each session is kept to a small group of eight or less to allow for one-to-one instruction on the key installation and commissioning requirements of the Modena.
Installers can handle the four moving parts and familiarise themselves with the simple steps involved in service and maintenance.
Mr Megginson added: “Since launching the new Modena HE boiler to the domestic market in January 2012, demand from installers for instruction at our new training centre has been constant so we know how important it is to them, but not everyone can make it to our Burton-upon-Trent head office.
“We want to provide training to everyone who wants it without delay so we are rolling out a raft of opportunities all over the UK to allow installers easy access to the training they need to achieve best practice.”
Modena HE training is currently available at Sunderland College (Hylton Campus), Sunderland; Bradford College, Bradford; Kane International, Atherton, Manchester; East Riding Training Solutions, Hull; M65 Gas, Colne, Lancashire; Specialist Gas Assessment Services, Blackpool.
