Renewable Energy Training

The UK needs renewable installers

Interested in renewable energy training?

Worcester Bosch Training

In the not too distant future, all of our buildings will be powered and heated by renewables – either indirectly, through the national grid which is in the process of moving away from fossil fuels, or directly using technology such as heat pumps and solar photovoltaics.

The UK needs renewable energy installers if it is going to meet the target of ‘Net Zero’ by 2050, presenting a great opportunity for plumbing and heating engineers looking to upskill. Our renewable courses are designed for existing building services installers, providing a relatively easy way to gain the necessary qualifications to future-proof your business.

Heat pump training

The government has promised 600,000 heat pump installations by 2028 – that’s a lot of heat pumps! At the moment, there are nowhere near the amount of trained engineers required to meet this ambition. If you train as a heat pump installer, you will be in demand. 

We deliver an Air Source Heat Pump (ASHP) course, using the latest Daikin heat pumps, plus supporting Water Regulations (WRAS) and Energy Efficiency in Domestic Heating qualifications, providing everything you need to hit the ground running.

For existing heating and plumbing engineers, training takes less than a week. 

Take your place in a green and lucrative future!
