Daikin UK launches new range of heat pump training courses

Daikin has launched a range of training courses designed to upskill plumbing and heating engineers in the installation of air source heat pump systems.

Daikin UK is now offering the DUK-H25: LCL Awards Level 3 Award in the Installation and Maintenance of Air Source Heat Pump Systems (non-refrigerant circuits). The course consists of two days of training followed by one day of assessment, comprising online multi-choice theory exams along with practical assessments.

Having achieved accreditation status at Daikin’s Working Technology Centre, the LCL Awards qualification is specifically aimed at existing fossil fuel and heating engineers who are looking to add air source heat pump installation to their service offering. Upon completion of the course, the qualification proves full competence in the installation of these types of system and can be counted towards MCS accreditation.

LCL Awards is one of the Building Services Engineering (BSE) sector’s foremost awarding and certification bodies. The overarching objective of LCL Awards is to enable learners to demonstrate their competence in accordance with legislation, regulations and general industry standards.

Martin Passingham, Department Manager Product and Training at Daikin UK said: “We are thrilled to announce the commencement of the LCL Awards training courses that will ensure plumbers are fully upskilled in the installation and maintenance of air source heat pumps. It is utterly crucial that the industry looks towards these heat pump solutions as we strive to use fewer fossil fuels to ultimately help the UK achieve its target of net-zero by 2050.”
