Helpful Information

What is the HETAS Sweep and Service Scheme?

The HETAS Sweep and Service Scheme is a combination of our previous sweep and servicing schemes. We recognise the vital role that both chimney sweeps and servicing technicians have in ensuring consumer safety when working on stoves and chimneys. At the forefront of our schemes is safety and educating the customer to achieve more environmentally responsible burning.

Why have the two schemes been merged?

We have listened to your feedback and recognise that sweeping and servicing often go hand-in-hand so by combining both elements under one registration, you will have the benefit of the recognised HETAS brand, including a website listing for those with sweep and/or servicing competences.

Do I need to complete HETAS Training to register on the scheme?

Yes, in order to create a robust scheme for experienced chimney sweeps and service technicians, the training requirement is our new four day centre-based Sweeping Course (H011), or the Sweeping Module which can be taken online or in a centre (H009S). We also offer a centre-based Service and Maintenance course (H009) which is suitable for those who don’t wish to undertake installation work. 

Contact the team to discuss training and registration further at 01684 215255 or [email protected].

Do you offer training for people with no sweeping experience?

The H011 Sweeping Course is suitable for candidates with no prior experience and will form part of your journey to becoming HETAS registered. This will be launched in training centres nationwide soon. Register your interest by completing this form.
