The fully equipped classroom travels to rural and remote areas of Scotland to deliver certified heat pump training. It can provide additional support for colleges and be an upskilling resource for industry.

The centre is managed in partnership with Energy Skills Partnership (ESP), who will administer the booking system. It is a resource to share across colleges in Scotland to deliver heat pump training and when not in use, it is hosted at South Lanarkshire College premises.

The centre is currently only available in Scotland.

The training is delivered by BPEC qualified heat pump trainers from colleges in Scotland, or by qualified private training providers.
