Free Heat Pump Installer training funded by Surrey County Council

East Surrey College and ISO Energy are providing training over a 5-day period. The training consists of two courses:

1. Low Temperature Hot Water Heating Systems

The qualification is aimed primarily at practicing plumbers and heating engineers who already have an understanding of the fundamental requirements of central heating systems and who wish to design and install energy efficient low temperature hot water heating systems that may use heat pumps as the heat source.

2. Level 3 Award in Heat Pump Systems (non-refrigerant circuits)

This is a nationally recognised qualification in the installation and maintenance of air source heat pump systems. The qualification is recognised by the Micro-generation Certification Scheme (MCS) as an acceptable qualification to join one of their respective schemes. Units covered include:

  • M/650/2406 - Know the requirements to size, select, install, commission and handover heat pump systems (non-refrigerant circuits)
  • R/650/2407 - Plan, prepare, install, commission, and maintain air source and ground source heat pumps (non-refrigerant circuits)

As a heating engineer, you can receive high quality training funded by Surrey County Council, on the installation and maintenance of air source heat pumps and low temperature heating system design, alongside extra content on the MCS certification and guidance on making the next step as a new heat pump installer. This training has been funded to help heating engineers make the transition to installing heat pumps and to meet the high demand for skilled heat pump installers in Surrey
