Hitachi is offering free heat pump product training to installers at its aircademy training centre in Maidenhead.

Since the launch of its heat pump course in late 2015, Hitachi’s specialist heating team has enabled more than 700 installers to get ‘hands on’ with the full range of Yutaki heat pump products and controllers.
​Led by Andy Henson, Hitachi heating’s technical engineer and training manager, the course was initially run over two consecutive days covering design, installation and electrical considerations as well as the monobloc and splits products. Following feedback from both distributors and installers, the content has now been packed into an intensive one-day course to make it easier for busy contractors to fit training into their work schedules.
Andy said: “Since the start of 2017 we have welcomed more than 250 heating engineers into our Yutaki product training and we’ll be continuing to run our programme across the summer.

“We’re also training a number of installers from Ireland and Scotland courtesy of our valued distributors in those areas. Getting heating engineers excited about the opportunities presented by air source heat pumps is great for both manufacturers and distributors, and will help get the message out to the domestic market about the many benefits of installing renewables.”

The new one-day course runs weekly in Maidenhead (and by request in Dublin) and is usually priced at £95 + VAT per delegate but, for a limited time only, Hitachi is providing its Yutaki heat pump training free of charge to suitably qualified installers. Refreshments, lunch and all course materials are provided and there is plenty of free onsite car parking available.
