Leading heating technology manufacturer Grant has announced that it will have welcomed more than 1,000 engineers, architects, BER assessors and installers and other professionals from the heating trade to both its eLearning Academy and onsite state-of-the-art training facility by the end of this year. 

Online and onsite training is available on a range of Grant’s heating technologies including the Vortex condensing boiler (combi, external and burner training), Spira wood pellet condensing boiler, Solar Thermal technology and the Grant Aerona³ R32 heat pump range, which continues to be the most popular course.

The Engineers Ireland approved ‘heat pump technology and appropriate heat emitter sizing' course has been completed onsite more than 200 times this year, with further professionals signed up to attend before the year end.

Develop industry and product knowledge

In addition, the course has also been popular this year online via the Grant eLearning Academy where delegates 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. 

This Engineers Ireland approved course from Grant has been developed by the manufacturer’s specialist training team to give delegates the opportunity to earn 1 CPD point for their professional development.

They will also 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.  

Commenting on this year’s success of the Grant Training Academy, trainer Keith Scully said: “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 choosing and installing our technologies are well equipped with the knowledge and experience they need to do this to the best of their abilities.
