Programme Features


The fully funded course will include information on a wide range of topics including the fundamental working principles of heat pump systems. 
This course has been designed and is delivered in accordance with the latest NOS/QCF criteria and MCS scheme requirements.

Programme Content


  • Requirements of relevant regulations/standards relating to practical installation,
  • Testing, and commissioning activities for heat pump installation work,
  • Fundamental design principles for ground source ‘closed loop’ heat pump collector circuit design and component sizing, layouts of ‘open loop’ water-filled heat pump collector circuits, heat loss design calculations for domestic dwellings and calculating energy output from traditional radiators to take into account the lower level of energy generated by heat pumps.

Progression & Employment


The government will provide grants to encourage property owners to install low carbon heating systems such as heat pumps, through the Boiler Upgrade Scheme 2022 - 2025. These grants will help property owners overcome the upfront cost of low carbon heating technologies. The scheme will be open to domestic and small non-domestic properties in England and Wales from 2022 - 2025.
