2022-06-01 – STIEBEL ELTRON launches new training course
Online on-demand Heat Pump Pass video course
STIEBEL ELTRON has launched a new training programme which aims to support the rising demand -for heat pumps across the UK, following recent government pressure to install 600,000 new pumps by 2030.
‘Heat Pump Pass’, is an online video training course, which delivers a technical overview of how heat pumps work and covers key considerations for installation.
The five-hour course, broken down into 26 segments, has now been rolled out in the UK following a successful launch in Germany. Users can request through STIEBEL ELTRON’s website where they will be given a month’s access to complete the flexible free course, making it easy to fit around busy work schedules.
Heat pumps provide a futureproof heating solution and reduce CO2 emissions by using energy stored in the air, water, and ground. With rising costs and a greater emphasis on sustainability, as well as the Government’s push towards the decarbonisation of the residential and commercial sector, the requirement for heat pumps is on the rise.
STIEBEL ELTRON has seen demand for heat pumps increase +145% YoY, when comparing January to April 2022 to the same period the previous year.
The training course is ideal for heating engineers wishing to transition from boiler installation to heat pumps, trainee heating engineers, and existing heat pump engineers wishing to deepen their knowledge of different heat pump technologies.
The course is part of STIEBEL ELTRON’s commitment to partnering with their installers to support them at every stage of their business.
Mark McManus, managing director at STIEBEL ELTRON UK, said: “The UK’s transition towards renewable heating solutions has been reflected in the huge rise in demand for heat pumps.
“With the government laying out ambition plans to decarbonise homes as part of net zero targets, we’re committed to investing in growth and development and proud to strengthen our training offer through the new Heat Pump Pass.
“The Heat Pump Pass is one of many support packages that we offer to installers as part of our ‘Your Heating Partner’ promise, providing unparalleled service and a hands-on approach for our valued customers.
“We have also expanded the team with six new hires, which is another great reflection on what has been a fantastic start to the year for STIEBEL ELTRON.”
