Panasonic has teamed up with Optimum Energy to create a huge opportunity for installers to upskill, part-funded by the government. With this fantastic offer you can book onto courses which normally cost £750 per person, for just £45 for dates throughout October.
As the drive to replace the huge number of fossil-fuel boilers (mains gas, oil and LPG) currently installed in homes across the country picks up pace, low-carbon heating (and cooling) systems have never been more in demand.
The partnership offers installers the chance to become certified, enabling them to install the thousands of heat pumps that will be required over the coming years to meet the target set by the government. According to a recent report by the Committee for Climate Change, approximately 19 million households could adopt this new technology by 2050, with current predictions of approximately one million heat pumps installed by 2030, resulting in the UK meeting its net zero target by 2050.
The time to get qualified is now
Panasonic has partnered with BEIS (The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy) and Optimum Energy Solutions to help installers access the necessary training for heat pump projects. The training runs weekly until the end of the month and is COVID-safe and online over two days with dates available from early October. Places are limited, so don’t miss out – book your place now.
The courses cover:
- Introduction to heat pumps: explaining the science behind this renewable technology
- How to conduct heat loss surveys
- How to correctly size and Air Source Heat Pump
In addition, delegates will receive free access to industry software and calculators worth hundreds of pounds and £100-off the cost of the LCL Heat Pump Part 1 course. Furthermore, help with MCS accreditation will be on hand if required.
Richard Bishop, head of marketing for Panasonic UK and Ireland commented: “We are excited to be able to provide such a great offer to installers and to be working in partnership with BEIS and Optimum Energy Solutions to be able to provide this heat pump training throughout the UK during October and help contribute to a low carbon future – a top priority for Panasonic.”.
