The Waxman Group has invested over £100k in a new training academy that will offer a selection of courses designed for solar PV, solar thermal, water regulations, heat pump installation, unvented hot water, biomass and working from heights. Waxman Training Academy, located at the company’s head office, features a lecture theatre-style classroom with audio visual projection facilities, a trouble-shooting test room and a scaffolding rig, mounted to multiple roofs on a house shell.

Simon Pattison, who will head up the Waxman Training Academy, said: “In the current climate and amid tightening legislation and the introduction of various government incentive schemes, it’s vital that installers not only stay on top of developments but that they update and expand their skill set.

All of Waxman’s courses are Logic Certified – Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS), Competent Person Schemes (CPS), Water Regulations Advisory Scheme (WRAS) -, with the exception of biomass and working at heights. Courses begin at the Waxman Training Academy on April 10, 2012. For more information, visit Waxman Renewables site or click here.
