Add renewables expertise with govt subsidy at ECTA

Gas engineers can get up to 70 per cent off training for renewables at Stockport training provider ECTA. Funding has been granted by BEIS and the Midlands Growth Hub for training in heat pumps and solar thermal systems to support engineers qualify in technologies that can be installed under the Green Homes Grant.

Engineers can also claim the funding for qualifications including Energy Efficiency, Water Regulations and Unvented Hot Water Systems, as well as the renewables qualifications that are recognised by MCS.

ECTA director Dave Berry says: “The government drive towards green technologies offers an opportunity for installers to diversify their businesses, and prepare themselves for the growth in interest from customers.

“There will be a demand for many more qualified people than currently exist.”
