Euroheat and HETAS Training and Certification Qualifications
Euroheat prides itself on developing and delivering MCS and HETAS training courses to the solid fuel and biomass industry.
Our professional course directors ensure that candidates achieve accreditation and certification to the highest standard.
With the need for installers to have MCS accreditation and other qualifications, training has taken on an even greater priority. Please book your chosen training course early, as demand for courses has never been higher. Euroheat are ready to meet the challenge, our state of the art training centre is more than ready to welcome you.
The Euroheat Biomass Training Centre is fully equipped with the latest generation of equipment and facilities, which includes: a dedicated classroom environment with a ceiling mounted projector and large screen, a practical showroom area with sixteen working and thirty unflued appliances, plus a large conference area with catering facilities.
HETAS is the official body recognised by Government to approve solid fuel domestic heating appliances, fuels and services including the registration of competent installers and servicing businesses.
Its work includes approving products that covers boilers, cookers, open fires and stoves and room-heaters. It also lists in its Official Guide, factory made chimneys and carbon monoxide detectors and alarms suitable for use with solid fuel.
HETAS operates a registration scheme for heating engineers with special skills in the installation and maintenance of solid fuel heating systems.
We are currently the only HETAS approved training centre offering all seven HETAS courses; H001, H002, H003, H004, H005, H005BR and H006.
HETAS Refresher Course
Any HETAS engineers that completed the H003 Installation of Dry Appliance Course or the H004 Installation of Wet Appliances Course, prior to or during 2009, are now due to sit a REFRESHER COURSE in order to renew their registration with HETAS. Completion by June 2014 is essential if engineers wish to continue as a qualified, registered installer.

Refresher Training for HETAS Registered Installers
The government has introduced new conditions for competent persons schemes which will come into effect from June 2014. As part of the changes HETAS registrants will be required to have attended a training course, or a refresher course, within the last five years. This provides registrants with an 18 month period to bring their training up to date, and refresher courses are now available from Euroheat, the UK’s largest supplier of HETAS approved training courses.
With thousands of installers having to attend the refresher courses, we will soon be oversubscribed. Book now to avoid disappointment.
Earlier this week the Department for the Environment and Climate Control (DECC) announced that the second phase of the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) would be delayed until 2013. In the meantime a new round of Renewable Heat Premium Payments is being launched. DECC also launched a consultation on interim cost control for the RHI, which could give Government the power to suspend the scheme if it looks like it will exceed the annual budget.
