Yesterday (24th October) saw Logic Certification play host to Energy Secretary, Ed Davey and the launch of a new £500,000 training voucher scheme in a bid to raise the skills set of existing plumbing and heating engineers, equipping them with the expertise needed to install and maintain renewable heating or hot water systems.
The Renewable Heat Incentive Training Support Scheme (RHITSS) has now gone live, meaning installers can apply for vouchers online at www.rhitraining.co.uk and redeem them at approved centres. If you're a Logic Certification centre and you haven't yet applied to become an approved centre, do so now at www.rhitraining.co.uk.
The domestic RHI has now been launched after what might seem like an eternity. This is an exciting turn of events for the building services engineering sector and one which should provide an incentive for installers to train in associated technologies.
Logic Certification courses in solar thermal hot water and heat pumps (both ground and air source) are some of the only qualifications approved to meet the requirements of MCS. Available at locations throughout the UK, is likely there's a Logic Certification approved centre not far from your business.
New statistics from the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) show that domestic RHI installations have smashed the 20,000 milestone, with some 6,244 new accreditations since April 2014 when the initiative was officially launched.
New statistics from the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) show that the UK’s Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) is now helping to warm 25,000 homes, as consumers wake-up to the benefits of installing renewable technologies, such as heat pumps, solar thermal, solar pv and biomass systems.
Logic Certification approved centre, Narec Distributed Energy, has given heating engineers in the North East the chance to upskill into this important sector for free, with a range of Logic Certification renewable qualifications funded with money from the European Social Fund (ESF) and the Skills Funding Agency (SFA).
LCL centre, NAREC Distributed Energy, based in the National Renewable Energy Centre in Blyth, Northumberland has been awarded funding for two of our renewable qualifications they are running this Autumn - Solar Thermal Hot Water Systems, starting on the 31st October and Heat Pump training on the 7th November.
