The Heat Training Grant supports trainees in England taking short training courses relevant to heat pumps and heat networks with grants of up to £500 towards eligible courses, such as those offered by Baxi.
Baxi, an official partner to the Government scheme, has today announced its offer of 15,000 Baxi Works loyalty points to installers receiving the Heat Training Grant.
Free supervised commissioning
Baxi will also support trainees with additional free CPD (Continuing Professional Development) and free supervised commissioning of their first heat pump installation for a limited period.
To be eligible, installers must complete an accredited Heat Pump Training Course with Baxi at the company’s Warwick, Dartford or Warrington training centres and register a Baxi air source heat pump (ASHP) via Baxi Works. The points will then be credited to their account to spend on various items from the Baxi works reward catalogue.
Baxi is part of BDR Thermea. The group, active in heat pumps since the mid-1980s, expects to manufacture and sell 600,000 heat pumps across Europe in 2025.
Harriet Evans, renewables director at Baxi, said: “With the Government scheme now launched, our points offer is also live and installers can start to benefit from this great skills initiative. Heat pump demand can only grow, so this is an ideal time for installers to get fully trained and accredited for heat pumps and secure future income from the transition to clean heat in homes.”
Every step of the journey
As part of its support for low-carbon heat, Baxi has put together a complete air source heat pump support package to familiarise installers with heat pump technology and its air source heat pump range.
The company offers support at every journey step, from the Heat Training Grant-eligible training courses to a complete packaged solution of heat pumps, cylinders and control systems, enhanced warranty options, nationwide commissioning and aftersales support.
Harriet added: “The Government has an ambitious target for heat pumps to play a major role in heat decarbonisation. As responsible heating experts, we are committed to giving installers all the support they need to make sure their installs deliver optimum performance, efficiency and energy savings for their customers.
“Creating the opportunity to receive 15,000 valuable Baxi Works points is our latest way of giving installers support to get comfortable with heat pumps and be part of the clean heat revolution.”
