﻿Vent-Axia moves to reduce shortfall of MCS-accredited heat-pump installers
Vent-Axia has launched a training initiative to help offset the shortfall of heat-pump installers accredited under the Microgeneration Certification Scheme. It offers a comprehensive fast-track route to MCS accreditation and comprises all the business procedures and documentation needed to pass the MCS audit. The scheme also includes a raft of practical tools to help engineers in their day-to-day business.
The scheme is part of Vent-Axia’s heat-pump division, recently set up to complement its Lo-Carbon collection of energy-saving ventilation solutions. The MCS Assistance Scheme can be completed in as little as four weeks and aims to ensure that when it comes to the audit, all the correct business procedures are in place and boxes ticked.
The MCS Assistance Scheme costs £1950 and includes assessment and certification fees. MCS-accredited installers receive a cash-back voucher for purchases of air-source and ground-source heat pumps from Vent-Axia.
Richard Paine, product marketing manager of the heat-pump division, says, ‘The Government is keen to increase the uptake of renewable-heat technology, but there is currently a shortage of MCS-approved heat-pump installers. This makes it a great time for engineers to gain MCS accreditation and a competitive edge. With the MCS Assistance Scheme, engineers are simply and swiftly guided through the process to achieve MCS accreditation.’
