NIBE welcomes the Government’s recently announced Heat Training Grant for renewable heating installers, providing trainees with grants of up to £500 to cover training costs.
NIBE Energy Systems is delighted to hear the Government’s new plans to help accelerate the heat pump installer base in the UK through a £5 million Heat Training Grant aimed at helping installers wishing to diversify into the heat pump industry. The scheme is expected to provide grants of up to £500 to cover the majority of the costs of installers undertaking level 3 training courses.
NIBE is also proud to have been highlighted as one of the organisations that expect to offer these courses as well as additional support. This support package will aid installers on their journey into low carbon technology and provide an easier and more affordable route to becoming an MCS Certified heat pump installer.
Installers taking part in the NIBE Pro scheme can already redeem their initial training costs against their first product purchases, so this scheme would make upskilling to heat pump technology an even more cost-effective decision for those training with NIBE.
Phil Hurley, Managing Director of NIBE Energy Systems, has added: “We are proud to be providing best in class training and technical support to our installers, and welcome the commitment by the Government to make the transition to low carbon energy more affordable for those wishing to diversify into the technology.
We are already in discussions with the team working on this scheme and hope to be able to offer grants to installers coming through our training courses. Following our calls for greater support and funding for consumers and installers to expand heat pump rollout in the UK, this grant scheme will be a welcome addition for installers to ensure they get the adequate training needed without sacrificing their earnings.”
