Panasonic offers cut-price heat pump training

UK: Members of Panasonic’s PRO Club will be able to receive £750-worth of heat pump training for just £45 during October 2021.

Panasonic has partnered with BEIS, the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, and Optimum Energy Solutions, to help installers access the necessary training for heat pump projects. The two-day online training will run weekly until the end of the month.

The courses will provide an introduction to heat pumps, information on conducting heat loss surveys and an explanation of how to correctly size an air source heat pump.

In addition, delegates will receive free access to industry software and calculators, said to be worth hundreds of pounds, and £100-off the cost of the LCL Heat Pump Part 1 course. Help with MCS accreditation will also be available if required.

The course is available to members of PRO Club, Panasonic’s online tool for designers, specifiers, engineers and distributors working in the heating and cooling markets. 

Registration for PRO Club is available here and registration for the training here.
