Course details

Why should I do this course?

In the Clean Growth Strategy, the Government have a target of 600,000 heat pumps to be fitted annually in the UK by 2028. This is part of a 10-point plan to help the UK go Carbon NetZero by 2050. Those currently installing heating in domestic property are the target workforce to help meet those targets, and with gas prices rising rapidly, consumers are becoming more switched on to alternative ways of heating their homes. Gas Engineers and Plumbers will increasingly face enquiries from customers looking for ways of reducing heating bills and making their homes more energy-efficient and environmentally friendly.

The Bootcamp aims to upskill gas engineers and plumbers to be able to install, maintain and service air source heat pumps in domestic property, whilst also giving essential underpinning skills and knowledge prior to taking the heat pump qualification. The modules are detailed below, and allow installers to gain additional qualifications and certifications (where they do not already hold them) which may be useful in other areas of their work.
