New scheme covers heat pump training costs

With the aim of helping installers to prepare to meet rising demand for heat pump systems, NIBE Energy Systems has today launched NIBE Pro – a scheme that will help cover the cost of training and enable heating installers to become MCS Certified.

The company estimates that around 20,000 heat pump installers will need to be trained over the next few years if the government is to reach its target of 600,000 heat pumps per year by 2028 and NIBE Pro has been launched to help support those installers who want to rise to the challenge. Under the scheme, training costs will be fully redeemable with NIBE Pro Vouchers which will enable installers to gain an industry recognised mark of quality without any long-term expense.

NIBE Pro Installers will also be able to advance upwards though the scheme as time goes on to unlock additional support and rewards. The three-tier installer scheme consists of NIBE Pro, NIBE Pro Partner, and NIBE Pro Exclusive.

Neil Hope, head of installer development at NIBE Energy Systems, comments: “Demand for heat pumps is set to keep on rising and time is of the essence for heating installers not wanting to get left behind. NIBE Pro has been launched to help installers build upon their skills and unlock a plethora of benefits, including digital and online support, redeemable rewards, dedicated business support, and technical expertise from NIBE engineers.”

MD Phil Hurley adds: This is an incredibly exciting time for the heating industry. The Government has recognised the key role heat pumps have to play in reducing greenhouse gas emissions from UK homes and NIBE is committed to helping installers to adapt to the inevitable change that waits ahead. We look forward to supporting them on their NIBE Pro journeys and providing them with the skills they need for the green building revolution.”
