Waxman Training Academy warmly welcomes HETAS biomass course accreditationWaxman Training Academy, purpose built centre for the training of renewable energy technologies, has announced a new accreditation with the Government recognised awarding body, HETAS.

Serena Sumner, Business Development Manager at HETAS, joined Waxman staff to present an official HETAS plaque that recognises Waxman Training Academy as a HETAS registered training centre. The new H005DE course, that has taken months of preparation and planning, was announced on Thursday 31st July and will offer existing gas and oil installers the opportunity to become equipped with the skills necessary to fit and maintain biomass appliances.

The course itself will take place in the Academy, Grove Mills Elland, which has recently been fitted with state-of-the art biomass technologies, to provide trainees with the best hands-on, practical experience, throughout various aspects of biomass installation.

Taking place over a five day period, the training will go into detail about all phases of biomass installation, ranging from building in compliance with European and British standards to the overall costing analysis. With this nationally recognised qualification, installers will be able to leave the course ready to install their first biomass technology product with competence and confidence, eventually leading to MCS Certification.

Daniel Poulter, Operations Manager of Waxman Group, says: “This is an exciting occasion for Waxman Training Academy. HETAS is a renowned, Government recognised body and we feel that the H005DE course will be extremely beneficial to our trainees. In keeping with HETAS’ requirements, our facility now houses all the technologies required to help installers gain a biomass qualification and this will put them on the right track to MCS accreditation.”

This news couldn’t have come at a better time for Waxman, as it coincides with the recent launch of the domestic RHI, enabling the high demand for training in renewable heat technologies to be met in one comprehensive training hub.
