Ideal Heating opens southern heat pump training centre

Ideal Heating has opened a £1 million centre near Luton to provide training in low-carbon technologies.

The Training and Technology Centre is close to the M1, north of London, and easily accessible for heating engineers in the south of England as well as the Midlands.

The new facility at Insignia Park in Dunstable, Bedfordshire, is home to Ideal Heating’s Expert Academy training arm to equip installers with the skills to fit, maintain and service domestic and commercial heat pumps.

Ideal Heating CEO Shaun Edwards said: “Opening our new Training and Technology Centre means we can support even more installers with the transition to working with low carbon heating products like heat pumps.

“Our training facilities are best in class and this new centre features the latest testing and simulation equipment which provides installers with hands-on, practical experience.”

The centre has four spacious training areas kitted out with the latest equipment and technology. Covering more than 16,000ft2, facilities and equipment include a live heat pump training suite and thermodynamic fault-finding simulators, giving hands-on experience of some of the common situations that installers deal with in their work.

The new hub follows the opening last year of Ideal Heating’s first National Training and Technology Centre in Hessle, East Yorkshire.
