Since the launch of its heat pump product training course in late 2015, Hitachi’s specialist heating team has welcomed over 700 installers into its aircademy training centre in Maidenhead. The academy offer installer the chance to get ‘hands on’ with the full range of Yutaki heat pump products and controllers.
Led by Andy Henson, Hitachi heating’s technical engineer and training manager, the course was initially run over two consecutive days covering design, installation and electrical considerations, as well as the monobloc and splits products. Following feedback from both distributors and installers, the content has now been packed into an intensive one-day course to make it easier for busy contractors to fit training into their work schedules.
Andy said: “Since the start of 2017 we have welcomed more than 250 heating engineers into our Yutaki product training and we’ll be continuing to run our programme across the summer.
“We’re also training a number of installers from Ireland and Scotland courtesy of our valued distributors in those areas. Getting heating engineers excited about the opportunities presented by air source heat pumps is great for both manufacturers and distributors, and will help get the message out to the domestic market about the many benefits of installing renewables.”
The new intensive one-day course runs weekly in Maidenhead (and by request in Dublin) and is usually priced at £95 + VAT per delegate. However, for a limited time only, Hitachi is providing its Yutaki heat pump training completely free of charge to suitably qualified installers.
