Daikin UK teams up with HSS Training


Daikin has teamed up with HSS Training to offer skills training, including F-Gas training, at a reduced rate.

As the sector for sustainable HVAC systems, both in residential and commercial, continues to grow, the requirement for qualified F-Gas engineers is increasing. Daikin has said that it wishes to support the industry by providing “easier and more affordable access to vital training.”

As such, this new partnership with HSS Training enables a reduced rate for F-Gas Cat 1 (5 day) training at a cost of £836 plus VAT, lower than the typical cost of £1,200 to £1,600 plus VAT.

HSS Training offers over 300 industry-recognised training courses, professionally delivered via 80 qualified trainers to individuals and organisations throughout the UK and Ireland at over 60 fully equipped centres.

A wide range of professional skills training is available from HSS, including First Aid at Work, Work at Height including IPAF certifications. All these courses are available at a special lower rate for Daikin installers and engineers. In order to apply for the training, customers will need a HSS account.

Martin Passingham, department manager product and training from Daikin, said: “At Daikin, we’re always looking for ways we can support our customers and the wider industry. This relationship with HSS allows us to provide a much more cost-effective means of recruiting more F-Gas registered engineers to help the transition to more sustainable heating systems.

“Additionally, customers can take advantage of reduced training costs on a wide range of other courses through HSS, making their businesses more versatile and valuable. We also hold ourselves as a responsible refrigeration advocate, which means the promotion of good practice and safe working. By ensuring vital skills training is viable and available to more people, the quality of work should in turn increase.”

Andrew Smith, commercial director at HSS Training, added: “HSS have formed a close working relationship with Daikin, across both Hire and Training. Daikin are known as market leaders of climate control solutions with a sharp eye on safety and we feel this echoes our ethos of trying to cultivate a safety culture across all industries, we are now pleased to be able to extend this offering to their wider customer base.”
