Course Introduction

More sustainable than traditional oil or gas heating, Air Source Heat Pumps are doing a great deal to reduce carbon emissions in the UK. In order to make a real impact on UK emissions, yearly installations will need to rise to 600,000 by 2028.

For this reason, as part of our drive toward a greener future, we are making our ASHP design and installation training one of our top priorities.

This course will cover the pre-requisites you need and give you the qualification for the installation and maintenance of air source heat pumps alongside the skills and abilities needed to promote and grow your business and take on new contracts.

Course Overview

This programme has been put together to enable learners with at least 2-years’ experience in either gas, heating, or air conditioning to upskill to enable them to install and maintain air source heat pumps as we move towards a Net Zero greener country.


We focus on the knowledge, skills, and behaviours needed to assist you enrolling on an accelerated apprenticeship in Low Carbon Heating Technician (ST1020), and/or to further your career, to successfully take on new work or more responsibility.


You will be trained and assessed on your practical and theoretical competence throughout the course to ensure you meet the criteria to install and maintain air source heat pumps.
