The Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) is holding a series of heat pump training roadshows across Great Britain
This will help those involved in installing this technology in the homes of social tenants get to grips with the new standards for heat pump installation, MCS MIS 3005 Issue 3, which came into force in April 2012.
DECC has worked closely with the heat pump industry to develop these new standards and held roadshows to train heat pump installers in Autumn last year. DECC is now holding workshops specifically aimed at social housing providers, as this group represents a major potential market for this technology.
These free, one-day events are specifically designed for asset management, sustainability, housing and energy staff within social housing providers and for their heating. Training will be interactive, helping attendees to get to grips with the detail of specifications, the costs and benefits of heat pumps, maintenance, resident training, contracts and commissioning.
