Leading heating technology manufacturer Grant last year welcomed more than 1,000 heating engineers, architects, BER assessors and other professionals from the heating trade to both its eLearning Academy and onsite state-of-the-art training facility.

Dedicated training academy

The Grant training facilities are located at the company's state-of-the-art headquarters in Birr, Co Offaly, and include a dedicated training academy featuring an auditorium and training suite.

The onsite training courses focus on the Grant Vortex condensing boiler (combi, external and burner training), the Grant Spira Pell condensing wood pellet boiler, Grant Solar Thermal and the Grant Aerona³ R32 air to water, air source heat pump range.

Led by head trainer, Keith Scully, Grant’s online and onsite training is available on a range of Grant heating technologies including the Grant Aerona3 heat pump and the HVO biofuel compatible Grant Vortex condensing boiler. Training on supporting technologies like heat emitters is also available.

Keith Scully, the head trainer at Grant, explained why the Grant training courses continue to be popular among industry professionals: “At Grant our research and development team works tirelessly to design and manufacture the most efficient and forward-thinking heating technologies for our dedicated customers.

"With this in mind, we, the training team, are dedicated to ensuring that those charged with installing our technologies are well equipped with the knowledge and experience they need to do this to the best of their abilities. This is why we are so passionate about our onsite and online training opportunities.”

Engineers Ireland approved, the online ‘heat pump technology and appropriate heat emitter sizing’ CPD course continues to be one of the most popular courses with heating engineers, architects and BER Assessors throughout Ireland. 

This course allows delegates to gain better knowledge of Grant’s heat pump and heat emitter technologies and how when working together, they will effectively maximise efficiencies and long-term carbon and cost savings. The course has been designed to provide insight and learnings on Grant’s innovative heating products and gain valuable CPD points. 

The ‘heat pump technology and appropriate heat emitter sizing’ course is also available online via the Grant eLearning Academy where engineers, architects and other heating professionals can develop their industry and product knowledge from the comfort of their own homes. This varied approach ensures continued professional development is accessible for all.
