OFTEC and MCS renewable heating webinars
Ever thought about working with heat pumps or other renewable heating systems? Heat pumps are currently government's preferred option in heat policy designed to reduce carbon emissions from homes and there are ambitious aims to install 600,000 heat pumps every year from 2028 in the UK which is a huge business opportunity for heat pump installers.
Along with MCS (the microgeneration certification scheme) we've published a series of three webinars looking at the opportunities available and outlining plans for a new streamlined route to certification.
Plus, an experienced heat pump installer takes you through the installation process and answer any questions you may have about heat pumps, installation and what's required to meet MCS requirements on a day to day basis.
Each one was around an hour - and all three are now available to watch in our webinars section.
