GTEC Training Ltd secures high profile contract with Department of Energy and Climate Change One

One of the UK’s renewable energy training providers has secured the contract to administer the Government fund that will help installers get up to speed on the vital skills needed to roll out the Coalition’s flagship renewable heating incentive (RHI).
GTEC Training Ltd is delighted to announce that it has been appointed by the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) to administer a major national grant funding programme.
DECC has committed to distribute £500,000 of funding to help installer companies gain the training they require to engage with heat producing renewable technologies.
The renewable heat incentive training support scheme (RHITSS) will fund installers wanting to be trained on renewable technologies ahead of the launch of the domestic renewable heat incentive (RHI) scheme next spring.
The domestic RHI is a ground-breaking world first scheme that has been five years in the making and will enable householders to receive a seven year income for the heat they generate from a renewable technology including Solar Thermal, Heat pumps or Biomass.
GTEC Training’s managing director Griff Thomas said: “This is great news for us and we are delighted to have been selected after some stiff competition from large national competitors.”
“The Domestic RHI is ground-breaking and we are thrilled to have been chosen to be a part of the scheme supporting installers throughout the process,” he adds GTEC Training Ltd has a long history of providing third party support to organisations all over the world and in the last 12 months has worked for a wide range of organisations from local authorities through to the United Nations delivering third party solutions, site compliance auditing, training and expert witness services.
