New MCS e-learning platform for installers

A new online tool has been developed by GTEC and Learning Lounge with the aim of helping to help installers comply with MCS 001 which covers the key requirements required to become MCS Certified. The ‘MCS Made Easy’ programme provides a package of support, including tutorials, Q&As and real-life scenarios, covering all the key requirements and supporting documentation.

For companies that have already achieved MCS certification, the platform serves as a useful revision and ‘myth busting’ tool, which will help businesses get through their annual assessment.

The e-learning takes the form of a webinar, written and presented by Chris Roberts, who was the technical author for MCS001. Chris talks candidates through the different elements of MCS001 and how they can be achieved without having to be burdened with huge sets of documents. On successful completion of the webinar, which includes multiple choice questions after each section, candidates will have completed CPD that goes towards proving they have a knowledge and understanding of MCS001.

Griff Thomas, MD for GTEC, comments: “MCS Made Easy is a simple to use, informative resource, that should really help installers gain a good understanding of what can seem a daunting task when it really isn’t.

“Whilst systems are crucial to maintain standards in renewable technologies, they do not need to be fully documented and complex; our webinar demonstrates this and will hopefully give installers a great basis to get their certification in place.

“Thanks to this new way of learning, we hope more building services installers will have the confidence to upskill into renewables and gain MCS certification – something that is much needed to meet the growing demand for low carbon technologies.”

To celebrate the launch, and with the support of funding from BEIS, GTEC is offering the first 200 places on the webinar (usually priced at £145) free of charge. To sign up, please visit:
