New heat pump training centre in the North-east

Gas engineers in the North-east of England and Scotland can now become qualified in air source heat pumps at Go Green Training Academy. The centre, based in Peterlee, County Durham, has opened its doors to deliver qualifications in installation, servicing and maintenance of ASHPs, helping tradespeople take advantage of growing demand for low-carbon heating.

Go Green Training is the brainchild of Brian Weir and Lee McCann, who have more than 40 years of ASHP installation experience between them.

Currently, there are not enough trained installers to meet predicted ASHP demand, says the Go Green Training Academy, which delivers fully certified LCL Awards ASHP qualifications.

Director Brian Weir says: “We are on a mission to upskill installers in the North-east with the training they need to take advantage of the expanding renewables sector. We want to be at the forefront of training the next generation of air source heat pump engineers across the North of England and Scotland.”

You can find out more about the facilities at Go Green Training at its forthcoming open day on 25 March 2022. The event is free to attend and you can book on Eventbrite.
