BPEC Award in the Installation and Maintenance of Air Source Heat Pumps (ASHP)

Worcester Bosch Training

Viva’s Air Source Heat Pump course offers qualified heating and plumbing engineers the opportunity to move into a high growth area for the future. 

Britain’s commitment to reduce carbon emissions calls for a huge increase in the number of air source heat pump installations across the UK. Figures in a recent report from the Committee on Climate Change estimate that 19 million heat pumps will need to be installed by 2050 if we’re to meet our Net Zero target. 

To put it another way, current Air Source Heat Pump (ASHP) installations, which number around 30,000 units a year will have to rise to 600,000 a year. That’s some figure!

Viva’s Air Source Heat Pump training course offers qualified heating and plumbing engineers the opportunity to move into a high growth area for the future.
