Heat pump training grant scheme goes from strength to strength

The Government-funded grant scheme to encourage existing oil and gas technicians to train as heat pump designers and installers continues to grow, and feedback from the candidates attending the OFTEC-approved centres offering the courses has been nothing short of excellent.

Survey indicates strong interest in heat pump training

99% of candidates taking the course feel that they feel confident or very confident in undertaking a retrofit installation, 99% are satisfied or very satisfied with the quality of training, customer service, and the whole training experience from first contact with the training centre to undertaking the course.

The grant scheme has been extended until the 31st July 2023 and, to date, over 400 people have received the discounted training. The scheme offers up to 70% off the cost of a heat pump course for candidates living in England, and is being delivered by a network of OFTEC-approved centres across the country.
