Nu-Heat Underfloor & Renewables has built a 300 sq m renewables installer training facility in Honiton, Devon.
Nu-Heat, with NICEIC Certification, offers accredited courses in heat pump and solar thermal Installation at the facility.
Training centre manager, Guy Metcalfe said: “The creation of a dedicated training facility was a natural step for Nu-Heat. UK sales of underfloor heating and renewable systems have grown rapidly in recent years, but this can only be sustained if sufficient numbers of installers are keen to benefit from the opportunities offered and training is a key factor.”
“With the reputation of the industry at stake, it is important that only competent installers undertake the work. To this end, the Government has made it a condition of renewable grant applications that both the heat pump model and the installer are on its approved list. Attending Nu-Heat’s accredited courses allows installers to apply for approval under the scheme.”
