Steve Willis Training has opened a new OFTEC approved oil heating training and assessment facility at its Portchester training centre, which features four purpose built assessment bays.

OFTEC CEO, Paul Rose, performed the official opening, noting that out of 84 OFTEC approved centres in the UK, Steve Willis Training is in the top five in terms of technician throughput.

Paul said: “This is a fantastic facility. It is bright and well laid out with latest tech, and the investment shows the level of confidence that remains in the oil heating market.”

The new oil centre has been created with the support of Worcester Bosch, as part of a long-standing partnership between the two companies. Worcester has provided all the boilers for use in the training and assessment, and its training manager, Nick Fothergill, also attended the opening.

Manufacturers Danfoss, Kane, Heatrae Sadia, and TWS also supported the centre by providing equipment.
