As more heating engineers and electricians are looking to further develop their skillset and refresh their knowledge, Drayton is reminding installers of its various training options.
For those looking to expand their business into the smart heating control market, Drayton’s online training academy, 9º Know How, provides tradesmen with a platform to learn more about its smart heating control, Wiser. The training module is delivered through a series of videos that are simple to follow and can be completed in around 30 minutes from the comfort of their own home. The module covers everything installers need to know about Wiser, including a product overview, kit selection advice, commissioning and set up guides, and tips for helping customers make the most from their Wiser system.
Perry McGowan of Volts Coventry commented: “The Wiser heating control is very smart and incredibly easy to install, but I found installation a lot easier thanks to the online training course that Drayton provide. It’s easy to access, it’s free, it doesn’t take too long and you get a qualification at the end of it!
“Once I gained my Wiser Approved status after completing the training, I was able to access a lot of support that has benefited my business, from customer leads from the Wiser website and extended warranty for registered products, through to a VIP technical support line if I have any product queries whilst out on a job.”
Additionally, The Drayton Community Facebook group, which was launched to support installers and provide a forum where members can engage with each other, is where professionals can access free training videos. The live training sessions cover Wiser, as well as Drayton’s wider product range, and viewers can submit their questions to be answered during the livestream. All videos are then available afterwards for anyone who wants to go back and access it at a later date.
Clare Weller, trade marketing manager, said: “With the current situation, we know that our installers are looking for new ways to undertake training as face-to-face sessions are unfortunately postponed. At Drayton, we’re thrilled to be able to provide installers with a whole host of alternative training options, including informative videos with Q&A sessions and more formal quiz-based assessment training modules. Covering everything from our smart heating control, Wiser, to our best-selling TRV4 range, there’s never been a better time to familiarise yourself with the Drayton product range.”
