HETAS is pleased to welcome the newly approved Mr Soot Training Centre to its network of industry leading training venues.

HETAS is the foremost training provider for solid fuel, wood and biomass offering a range of comprehensive courses which provide a pathway to HETAS registration. With fourteen existing centres, the Mr Soot Training Centre becomes the latest to gain HETAS approval.

Located in Wigan town centre, the facility has been specially designed with a variety of solid fuel training rigs, a classroom, a meeting room and offices over two floors. The location was specifically chosen due to its brilliant transport links. Not only is it just minutes from the M6 motorway, but it has fantastic railway connections.

In addition to the range of HETAS courses, the centre will be offering its own in-house training academy along with business workshops and seminars for sole traders, micro businesses and SMEs.

Speaking of the launch of the new centre, Sam Garrahan, Co-Owner, Director and Centre Manager, said:

We are delighted to be launching a modern, professional training centre in the heart of Wigan.

Set over two floors, we’ve sought to make it a pleasant and vibrant environment in which to learn. Our emphasis will be on making it a real national centre of excellence, and we can’t wait to get started.”

HETAS Head of Training Carrie Artus comments:

“As the industry leading training provider, we want to ensure that only the best training centres offer our range of courses. We can see the passion and enthusiasm of the Mr Soot team to provide quality training to industry stakeholders and this centre complements our existing network across the UK.”

Bruce Allen, Chief Executive of HETAS, said:

It is fantastic to be able to welcome Mr Soot to our network of HETAS approved training centres.

As an organisation, HETAS is committed to promoting the highest standards and we have been immensely impressed by what we have seen at the Mr Soot Training Centre.

It’s clear David, Sam and the Mr Soot team as a whole share our passion and vision to continue professionalising the industry. We look forward to working with them and our partners in the months and years ahead.”
