As the energy landscape rapidly evolves and consumers increasingly seek out sustainable and environmentally friendly heating solutions, many heating engineers and installers are recognising the importance of extending their offerings to meet these evolving demands.

Keen to equip installers and technicians with the correct training that aligns with the latest industry standards and legislation, HETAS has approved training centres across the breadth of the UK. The latest centre to join its network of industry leading training venues is the Mr Soot Training Centre based in Wigan, Greater Manchester.

The new centre joins 14 existing training facilities which all specialise in a range of training courses, business workshops and seminars for sole traders, micro businesses and SMEs. Speaking on the launch of the new centre, David Soot, “Our business has always stood for professionalism and innovation; delivering what customers want and continually striving to raise standards.

“By unveiling of a modern, bespoke training centre, we have demonstrated our commitment to investing in both the local economy and future of our industry.”

Renowned for its commitment to providing quality training and certification schemes to professionals, HETAS aims to ensure that technicians across the country have access to exceptional training opportunities that foster industry excellence.

All 15 HETAS accredited training centres across England, Scotland and Wales offer comprehensive courses led by expert trainers and assessors. These courses cover a wide range of topics, including appliance installation, maintenance and servicing, as well as the newly introduced Sweep and Service scheme.

Commenting on the need to meet consumer demands, CEO Bruce Allen said: “By diversifying their expertise to include solid fuel and biomass appliances, heating installers, sweeps and technicians alike can effectively address consumer preferences for greener alternatives. As the industry leading training provider, we want to ensure that only the best training centres offer our range of courses.

As consumer preferences drive the demand for sustainable heating solutions, HETAS remains committed to empowering installers, technicians and sweeps alike with industry-leading training and certification. By expanding its network of registered training centres, HETAS can help to broaden the knowledge and skills of those on the frontline of delivering alternative heating solutions.
