Kensa Heat Pumps has launched a programme of free monthly training days dedicated to ground source heat pumps at Exeter College.
In partnership, Kensa  and the college have created a unique resource for installers, using working examples of Kensa ground source heat pump systems.
The one-day training courses are at a new facility at Devon & Exeter Construction Training Centre and available dates in March and April were quickly booked.
The training covers all aspects of ground source, including the specification, application, design and installation of a Kensa ground source heat pump system. It features a mixture of classroom-based theory and plenty of practical ‘hands-on’ learning.
The facility showcases products from Kensa’s range, including the Evo Series, which recently won Heat Pump Product of the Year at the National ACR & Heat Pump Awards 2018 and Best Sustainable Product at the Build It Awards 2017.
Darren Veal, Commissioning Engineer at Kensa, is delivering the training. He said: “We know how essential it is that installer training involves a practical element, so Kensa is excited to launch our 2018 training days in this new facility, specially created in partnership with Exeter College, where we can showcase fully working ground source heat pump systems.

“The 2018 course material includes some new elements, such as innovative heat pump system architecture, designed to show installers new scenarios in which they can specify ground source heat pump technology, widening their business opportunities.”

Jim Dowling, Managing Director of Oxford Renewables, said: “Our team attended a ground source heat pump training session with Kensa in March. As market leaders, they really know what they are talking about and their technical knowledge is first class.

“Our background is in installing biomass boilers for domestic and commercial customers, so we see ground source heat pumps as a great compliment to our portfolio of renewable technology offerings. We are working with Kensa to help us promote and sell the technology.”
