Discounted heat pump training available for installers in England

Following a successful application for funding through the BEIS Home Decarbonisation Skills Training Competition, OFTEC is delighted to be able to offer heat pump training at a discounted rate of up to 70%* off at participating training centres. 

Completion of the course opens the door for heating businesses to access the OFTEC heat pump CPS and MCS registration schemes, allowing you to undertake installations funded by the Boiler Upgrade Scheme and putting your business in prime position to benefit from the growth of the heat pump market.

The 70% off discount is available for the following OFTEC courses:

To qualify for the discount candidates must work for a heating business based in England (a criterion set by BEIS). They must complete the assessment in full and receive personal certification in one of the eligible courses, following an internal verification process and technical review before final certification is awarded. Assessments must be sat in person at the centre and pre-assessment training and training reference material can be included in the funding allocation.

Candidates must meet the course pre-requisites and you can check you are eligible here.

The training funding, which is worth £9.2m in total, is designed to boost the number of heat pump, skilled retrofit and energy efficiency installers and is specifically targeted at small to medium sized businesses because these make up the backbone of the heating and building trades. The competition is designed to boost the number of installers able to install technologies needed to enable homes to be net zero ready.

Because of the discount the training is likely to be popular, so we recommend that you book your place as soon as possible.

* The discount applies to the net cost of the course excluding VAT. You will be required to pay the balance of the net cost to the centre and any applicable VAT (which can be claimed back via normal VAT returns if you are VAT registered) A discount of 60% is available for employees of companies employing more than 50 people, and 50% if the company employs more than 250.
