Dimplex’s new Logic Certification-approved renewables training courses are helping installers around the country to get ahead in sustainable heating, with an industry-recognised qualification.

Dimplex has been running its heat pump and solar thermal training courses for several years, but introduced a new Logic syllabus last summer. Already the new courses have proved extremely popular, due to a winning combination of technological expertise and solid industry backing.

Peter Quinn of Manx Solar Energy Ltd. attended the new Dimplex heat pump training course in late 2009, although he has worked with renewable heating since 2002, having attended an early Dimplex air source heat pump training course.

Peter wanted to update and expand his company’s skills, as the new Logic Certification-approved training course covers both air source and ground source technologies. “Our business is now around 90-95 percent renewables-based - we’re a major installer here on the Isle of Man – and we use Dimplex air source heat pumps wherever possible. We think they’re a fantastically reliable product, so Dimplex was the natural choice when we decided to expand into ground source heat pumps.”

Peter continues: “The Dimplex heat pump course is excellent – I can honestly say I learnt more on the course than on any other training I’ve ever been on. It gives an in-depth understanding of all the elements of heat pump systems and their installation. The trainers are extremely knowledgeable and have years of experience of working with renewables.

“Dimplex is taking a sound approach to the renewables market, with its installer accreditation scheme. I don’t think anyone can touch Dimplex when it comes to the product, so it makes sense that the quality is maintained with an expert installation.”

He continues: “It’s a substantial investment in Manx Solar Energy to have two of us away training for four days, but we are already seeing the benefits. We are quoting for a wide range of projects and are able to answer any queries with confidence. And in our marketing, the use of the Dimplex accredited installer logo really inspires confidence in the customers. They know they’re dealing with authorised installers and a trusted brand.”

Dimplex runs both this course and its solar thermal course regularly at locations around the UK, so installers can attend at a time and place to suit them.
