We have developed this course in collaboration with the Home Builders Federation (HBF) and Worcester Bosch.




The course is designed to upskill qualified plumbing, heating and RAC engineers to correctly install and maintain domestic heat pumps. 

This course was developed with funding we were awarded in support of the Green Homes Grant Voucher Scheme* to create and deliver GHG BEIS & Hub credited training.


The course is made up of six modules:

Different types of heat pump systems

How to correctly specify and install low temperature heating systems

The importance of specifying the correct sizing of heat pump, collectors and emitters

In depth about air source heat pumps

Commissioning and handover guidance
