Heating engineers can now get £500 towards training to become qualified heat pump installers through the government’s £5 million Heat Training Grant.
As part of building a skilled workforce to scale up heat pump installations and support the Prime Minister’s priority and grow the economy, over 60 approved training centres across England will provide more than 6,000 heating engineers with the skills needed to qualify as a heat pump engineer. This will be backed by a generous discount to make it even easier for people to train.
Opening today (4 July 2023), the scheme will provide £500 off the cost of training per person, which usually costs around £600 to complete – meaning the vast majority will be covered by the government.
All applicants have to do is sign up for the training through their chosen provider and confirm they are eligible for the grant. Thousands of trainees will receive the practical training needed to join a professional installer certification scheme, with all training rigorously assessed and designed to meet the highest standards needed for professional certification.
