NICEIC HEAT PUMP TRAINING

BECOME AN APPROVED NICEIC DOMESTIC AIR SOURCE AND GROUND SOURCE HEAT PUMP INSTALLER.

MasterTherm Heat PumpIn partnership with Coleg Sir Gar we offer NICEIC accredited training courses for heating engineers to learn how to install air and ground source heat pumps. There's never been a better time to expand your range of services and products to include heat pumps, as the UK government has set a target to install 600,000 heat pumps a year by 2028. To encourage this high level of growth and adoption of renewable technology, gas boilers will be banned from installation in new build properties from 2025, providing you with an amazing opportunity to be part of the Green Industrial Revolution.
