Program highlights

Our Heat Pumps program takes the learner through several stages of heat pump systems from different types or ground source and air source, system design, installation, testing, commissioning, handover and maintenance.

The immersive virtual scenarios gives the learner the opportunity to carry out a system inspection, diagnose faults with configurations or components and commissioning a system.

This online environment provides a safe, realistic place to test their knowledge, make mistakes without real life consequences and boost their skills attainment.


Virtual scenarios:
  • System installation
  • System commission and handover
E-learning modules:
  • Overview and considerations
  • Health and safety
  • Heat pumps type
  • Ground source heat collectors
  • Air source collectors
  • System design
  • Installation
  • Testing, commissioning and handover
