Please get in touch and we can put together a package which includes the pre-requisites that will enable you to move into this exciting field of renewables.

What will I learn?

The BPEC Installation and Maintenance of Heat Pump Systems course is aimed at experienced heating engineers. 

With increasing targets to cut carbon emissions, the introduction of the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) consumer demand for this renewable energy source is increasing. The course is nationally recognised and meets the training entry requirements for the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS).

Delegates will develop the skills and knowledge required to install  and maintain non refrigerant heat pumps systems within the Building Services Engineering (BSE) renewable sector by means of practical and theoretical assessments.

This course does not lead to a regulated qualification. Candidates will receive a BPEC Certification which demonstrates skills and knowledge to install and maintain heat pumps systems. It is recognised for the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) and valid for 5 years.
