Train on heat pumps for £160 with GTEC

Training on air source heat pumps at GTEC is now available for just £160 plus VAT*. The three-day course, suitable for experienced plumbing and heating engineers, is available at GTEC’s nationwide centres and usually costs £660.

There are 260 places available on the LCL Awards Level 3 ASHP course and training must be completed by the end of March 2024.

Funding has been awarded through Midlands Net Zero Hub, part of the Department of Energy, Sustainability & Net Zero (DESNEZ) Heat Training Grant scheme.

GTEC MD Griff Thomas says: “As we move forward into 2024, demand [for heat pumps] will only increase, fuelled by the recent uplift in funding under the Boiler Upgrade Scheme. Even without financial incentives, there have been some exciting developments in heat pump delivery this year, including the option to spread costs through manufacturers such as Aira, which will see switching to a heat pump becoming affordable for many more people.

“We expect interest in our discounted heat pump training be high, so book now to avoid disappointment.”

GTEC’s approved centres are in North Yorkshire, Farnborough, High Wycombe, Sunderland and Axminster.

All courses must be booked through GTEC’s website site. If you are a City Plumbing customer, contact the Energy Efficiency Centre in Farnborough to book your course.

*VAT is payable on the original cost of the course, at £132. So, for a VAT registered business, the total cost is £292.
