Time to upskill with BESA’s heat pump installer course

The Building Engineering Services Association (BESA) free-of-charge heat pump installer course is available now

BESA, Worcester Bosch and the Home Builders Federation (HBF) have created an online course designed to upskill qualified plumbing, heating and RAC engineers to correctly install and maintain domestic heat pumps.

The Heat Pump Installer training course will give engineers the knowledge to capitalise not just on installations in ‘new build’ homes but also the domestic retrofit market too.

The course is for those with one of the following:

• Blue/Gold ACRIB/SKILLcard Refrigeration/Air Conditioning Engineer

• F-Gas Qualification

• Oftec Registration

• Gas Safety Registration

The heat pump installer course is made up of six modules, including different types of systems, maintenance and commissioning. If all online modules are completed by 31 May 2021 then the course is completely free of charge.

Ewan Sutherland, national training manager of Worcester Bosch, said: “As we move towards a zero carbon future, heat pumps will become more prominent in the heating technology mix. With that in mind it is essential for current engineers to either train or refresh themselves on how to correctly install and maintain this technology.

“By taking advantage of the current promotion, engineers can ensure that they are fully equipped for a mix of heating systems in the future.”
