Ideal opens southern heat pump training centre

UK: Ideal Heating has opened a new £1m heat pump installation training centre in Bedfordshire to serve the south of England.

The new 1500m2 facility in Insignia Park, Dunstable, is the latest training centre dedicated to low carbon technologies to be opened by the company. It will be used by Ideal Heating’s Expert Academy training arm to equip installers with the skills to fit, maintain and service domestic and commercial heat pumps.

In addition to the live heat pump training suite and thermodynamic fault-finding simulators, the centre also houses a large conference facility, product display areas and a café.

The new hub follows the opening last year of Ideal Heating’s first National Training and Technology Centre in Hessle, East Yorkshire.

Ideal Heating has revealed that it plans to launch a new advanced heat pump technician and fault-finding course in July.
