Waxman Training Academy

Waxman Training Academy, purpose-built centre for training in solid fuel appliances and renewable energy technologies, is pleased to announce it is to host a HETAS Live! event on Tuesday 22nd March 2016, at its Elland headquarters in West Yorkshire.

The event, aimed at local installers, retailers, chimney sweeps and sales people who (wish to) specialise in solid fuel and biomass products, will offer information and advice regarding various industry standards and regulations. Waxman Training Academy will also be joined by sister division Waxman Heating, to help provide installers with more knowledge of the associated products involved to enhance solid fuel careers and HETAS qualifications.

Free to attend, HETAS Live is a perfect opportunity for those in the heating industry, who aren’t yet HETAS registered, to gain further information about membership benefits and the advantages of having a qualification under a nationally recognised and industry respected association. As solid fuel, wood and biomass are becoming popular alternatives for domestic users, the demand for such appliances is rapidly increasing; HETAS Live will help those interested in the industry to get a taste of how they can become involved in such a growing trade.

The Training Academy is a HETAS Approved Centre, which sees high levels of attendees signing up to HETAS courses throughout the year. A HETAS Live event held at the Academy helps to further enhance trainees’ relationships with the centre, using it as a reliable resource of valuable information. This, backed up with guest speakers from associated manufacturers and specialist industry organisations, helps provide attendees with abundant information from professionals across a wide spectrum.

A brief itinerary for the event is as follows:

4pm – Arrival and welcome teas/coffee

4:15 – Tour of the training centre, training Room and any solid fuel assessment areas or equipment
