At Vaillant we recognise that graduates and young apprentices are the future heating engineers for years to come, the training for a low carbon future and the decarbonisation of the gas grid needs to start now.
For years we have focused on the transition of gas heating to renewable solutions, training Gas Safe engineers in our centres around the UK in both theory of how heat pumps work and industry knowledge along with practical sessions on our air-to-water and ground source heat pump ranges. With the greater focus on low carbon technologies for the future, it is even more important that we look at the younger generation, too.
Not only this, but young engineers have great opportunities for areas of the UK which are not on the gas grid with not only heat pumps, but also BioLPG and hybrid systems.
In a bid to support those going through apprenticeships and college courses, we regularly visit colleges to talk to students about net zero targets and how we plan to achieve them as both a UK manufacturer and global company. We hope that by doing this, we support the upcoming, future engineers in their journey, along with providing them an insight into Vaillant Group as a global manufacture.
Once an engineer has gained the Gas Safe qualification, we pride ourselves in supporting installers in furthering their knowledge and career. We offer an extensive list of training courses, varying from detailed product training on our product ranges to BPEC courses and even further webinars on the future of decarbonisation.
Not only this, but once you have the Gas Safe qualification, you can sign up to our Advance loyalty scheme for even more benefits. We offer a wide range of business support, including marketing tips and customer leads via our Find an Installer scheme, to extended product guarantees and cashback on your installations.
“As a business that proudly supports installers we understand and recognise the importance of skills development in driving the LPG industry forward helping it reach new heights of success as we head towards a cleaner, greener future.
We are proud to partner with Liquid Gas UK to support the launch of the Young Person in LPG Awards, recognising the great work that is being done by talented young people within the industry. I encourage people to apply either for themselves or recommend a colleague or employee.”
