The Solid Fuel +Plus Installer Course has been developed, alongside HETAS and Robinsons UK, to offer a comprehensive 5 day training course for candidates wishing to gain recognised qualifications in solid fuel installation by utilising existing practical skills.

What are the aims of this course?

This combined installer course is designed to give candidates the underpinning knowledge and experience to provide access to HETAS H003DS and H006. This is achieved through a combination of training, practical activities and assessment to build a portfolio of evidence which will identify the experience required to undertake HETAS installation courses. The course will include detailed information from H001 and H002, enriched with practical installation scenarios using our on-site training rigs.
