As a business committed to driving education within the industry, Xpelair is offering two levels of learning – designed to help customers to stay ahead of the game when it comes to modern ventilation and the opportunity it presents.
Installers and contractors seeking to develop their skillset can now benefit from three different BPEC courses, all of which conform to the new Summit Skills syllabus for ventilation and are certified by the independent training organisation (BPEC). Through both theoretical and practical training, attendees can learn about the main types of domestic ventilation systems and how to install them safely and efficiently, then test them afterwards. On completion of the BPEC training, installers are certified to install all four ventilation systems for five years – including mechanical ventilation with heat recovery (MVHR).
In addition, Xpelair is also offering a free, industry-approved CPD seminar which covers the principles of heat recovery, meeting Passive House standards and best practice for domestic heat recovery – ideal for those seeking to gain a basic understanding of the MVHR opportunity within a limited time frame.
The BPEC course is housed within Xpelair’s purpose-built state-of-the-art training facility in Peterborough, whilst the CPD seminars are delivered across the UK. Both courses are run by the business’ team of ventilation experts who provide support and guidance to attendees beyond the four walls of the classroom.
Lee Stones, Category Manager for Xpelair, said: “As one of the UK’s leading manufacturers and developers in ventilation systems, we feel it’s only right that we share our expert knowledge with the industry and our customers.
“As we all know, the ventilation category has changed drastically in recent years; amid legislation reforms, the rise of the green agenda and a shift towards MVHR systems – which many installers still have had little to know experience of.
“As such, we’ve developed these courses specifically to cut through the confusion, helping them to stay fully up to date with industry changes and best practice in developing new systems, such as MVHR. We’d encourage all customers to take advantage of this opportunity to ensure they have the right skillset to meet future demand and grow their business.”
