HETAS is to expand its network of registered training centres throughout England, Scotland and Wales.
As the energy landscape rapidly evolves, many heating engineers and installers are recognising the importance of extending their offerings to meet these evolving demands, a statement has said.
The latest centre to join HETAS’ network of training venues is the Mr Soot Training Centre based in Wigan, Greater Manchester.
The new centre joins 14 existing training facilities which all specialise in a range of training courses, business workshops and seminars for sole traders, micro businesses and SMEs.
David Soot, owner and founder of Mr Soot Training Centre, said: “Our business has always stood for professionalism and innovation; delivering what customers want and continually striving to raise standards.
“By unveiling of a modern, bespoke training centre, we have demonstrated our commitment to investing in both the local economy and future of our industry.”
All 15 HETAS accredited training centres across England, Scotland and Wales offer comprehensive courses led by expert trainers and assessors, according to a statement. These courses cover a wide range of topics, including appliance installation, maintenance and servicing, as well as the newly introduced Sweep and Service scheme.
Bruce Allen, CEO at HETAS, added: “By diversifying their expertise to include solid fuel and biomass appliances, heating installers, sweeps and technicians alike can effectively address consumer preferences for greener alternatives. As the industry leading training provider, we want to ensure that only the best training centres offer our range of courses.
“As consumer preferences drive the demand for sustainable heating solutions, HETAS remains committed to empowering installers, technicians and sweeps alike with industry-leading training and certification.
“By expanding its network of registered training centres, HETAS can help to broaden the knowledge and skills of those on the frontline of delivering alternative heating solutions.”
