Heating technicians pages | OFTEC - off-grid heating technologies

Welcome to the news and training section

Training is an essential part of any heating technician's career. Before you can register as part of the OFTEC competent persons scheme you need to be able to demonstrate that you have the right skills and knowledge to be able to carry out your work to a high standard and according to your local building regulations. Once registered, you also need to refresh your knowledge by passing the relevant assessments for your scope(s) of registration every five years. This is to ensure that you keep your skills up to date with changing regulations. 

OFTEC works with over 90 training centres across the UK and ROI who offer the OFTEC liquid or solid fuel courses - many of these centres also offer gas and renewable courses. Our useful online training centre finder will help you find a training provider offering all the courses / assessments you need.

Since the early 2000's we have been offering registration schemes for heating technicians working in the off-gas grid sector in the UK and Republic of Ireland. Our registered technicians have access to a range of useful services and benefits and are widely respected in the heating industry.

Our registered technicians benefit from the support of our marketing campaigns which include national and regional press and social media coverage in the UK and Republic of Ireland.

Strong relationships with all regional authorities mean that we can keep our registered technicians informed of any changes to regulations in their local area.

You can read more about the benefits of registering your business with OFTEC here and how to register here and find out about the different registration schemes that we offer for heating technicians. 

As a UKAS accredited scheme provider, there are of course a number of requirements that businesses need to follow to maintain registration. You can read about these rules of registration here
