GTEC is providing accredited heat pump and associated courses for installers at the City Plumbing’s new Energy Efficiency Centre in Farnborough, Hampshire.


The Energy Efficiency Centre, which is launching fully in April, will showcase renewable energy home heating technologies – such as heat pumps, underfloor heating and solar panels – with supporting training ensuring engineers are fully equipped to take-advantage of this growing marketplace.


Steve Aldritt, Technical Director, Energy Efficiency at City Plumbing, said “We are very excited to announce that EE at City Plumbing has entered into partnership with GTEC to deliver accredited training courses to our installer base in England and Wales – and help our customers make the transition to low carbon technologies.”


“Our industry-leading Energy Efficiency Team has been in place for over a decade, offering an indemnified design service along with impartial advice on technologies and manufacturers, as the market evolves, we are looking to support our installers through their journey and this partnership, and the Energy Efficiency Centre are crucial steps in this process”


Griff Thomas, manging director of GTEC Training added: “GTEC is delighted to be playing a part in Energy Efficiency at City Plumbing, with our first in-merchant training facility at the Energy Efficiency Centre in Farnborough”


“Heat Pumps are playing a key role in the UK’s drive to reduce the carbon footprint of our buildings – the ideal solution for energy efficient properties”


“Thanks to the partnership between GTEC & City Plumbing, installers will be able to access everything the need to enter this growing market; from purchasing the latest heat pumps and associated equipment, to undertaking our industry-leading training”


“All Heating & Plumbing installers should consider upskilling into heat pumps. Demand is growing steadily and will outstrip gas boilers over the next 10 years. Training is designed for tradespeople, providing an exciting opportunity for the existing installer-base”


The Energy Efficiency Centre is the first step in City Plumbing’s ongoing, industry-wide campaign to raise the number of Heat Pump Installers in the country.
