Press Release: March 19, 2010
MET-UK are proud to launch their Renewable Energy Installer course this month ahead of new Government targets addressing Carbon emissions and the introduction of the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI). The scheme is due to start in April 2011 and guarantees that the average household will be paid well in excess of £1000 for renewable heat that they generate themselves. This is expected to lead to a rapid increase in the number of homes heated by solar thermal, heat pumps and other renewable technologies. The RHI is intended to help the Government reach their target of 12% or more of the UK heat demand to be provided by renewable technologies by 2020.
MET-UKs Renewable Energy Installer course includes:
BPEC Solar Domestic Hot Water
BPEC Rainwater Harvesting
BPEC Underfloor Heating Installation
Logic Ground & Air Source Heat Pumps; and
BPEC Disinfection of Water Systems (Legionella)
Aimed at existing Plumbers and Heating Engineers, the course will ensure that theyre well equipped to be able to answer to the huge expected demand for the installation of renewable technologies in the home, putting MET-UK trainees well ahead of their contemporaries.
Available now at MET-UKs established Centre of Excellence in Rotherham, South Yorkshire and at the newly opened Corby Training Centre, in Corby Northants, the renewable and green focused courses compliment MET-UKs existing gas, plumbing and electrical courses including ACS Assessment and re-assessment, Part L, Unvented Hot Water, Part P full and defined scope and 17th Edition.
