Rise in Heat Pump training follows investment in new facility  

Interest in training at Stiebel Eltron’s new centre is high following a £350,000 investment in a new training centre which is helping installers gain knowledge of renewable heating systems including heat pumps.  

Since the company began its investment last year, more than 500 trainee heat pump installers have signed up to training programmes with some 170 having completed either the in-person or online courses.  

The company reports that out of those to complete the course, 91% rated the content as extremely high, with 94% ranking the trainers as excellent, and 100% saying they would recommend it.  

Mark McManus, Managing Director, Stiebel Eltron UK said: “Since launching the new training centre in November last year we’ve seen an influx of trainees signing up to gain better understanding of the heat pump industry.  

“We recognised that while there was growing demand for heat pumps, this wasn’t necessarily reflected in the number of installers available and so decided to act with the development of our own training centre and training programme.   

“Seeing the strong numbers signing up and the fantastic feedback received from attendees, we know we are on the right track and playing a vital role in inspiring the next generation of heat pump installers who will drive the market forward.” 

Accommodating 16 professionals-to-be at any given time, the centre features the latest industry technology, accommodating a range of ground and air source heat pumps which vary in size and shape, and are used in different situations such as in commercial settings, houses, or flats.  

With the training course offering one and two-day programmes, depending on experience, attendees are introduced to the world of heat pumps, covering the company’s products, their installation, maintenance, and decommissioning.  

For those unable to attend in person, Stiebel Eltron UK created an online training course, Heat Pump Pass, which is designed to give trainees a basic understanding of how heat pumps work and key considerations when carrying out an installation.
