Go Green Training Academy, based in Peterlee, County Durham, is one of the latest LCL Awards Centres to deliver our ASHP qualifications.

The brainchild of Brian Weir and Lee McCann, who have over 40 years of ASHP installation experience between them, Go Green Training Academy will help plumbing and heating engineers in the North East be prepared for the growing heat pump marketplace.

Director Brian Weir said: “We are on a mission to upskill installers in the North East with the training they need to take advantage of the expanding renewables sector.

“We want to be at the forefront of training the next generation of air source heat pump engineers across the North of England and Scotland.”

Tracy Harker, Quality Assurance and Relationship Manager at LCL Awards said: “LCL Awards is delighted to be working with Go Green Training Academy and can see that their facilities offer a great learning environment.  Lee and Brian are experienced trainers/assessors with a fresh approach to course delivery. There are plans in place to offer a range of renewable technology qualifications. We wish them every success with this new venture.”

In addition to expert trainers, significant investment has helped to make the facility one of the best in the UK.

Training will be delivered by Brian and Lee, who have installed over 100 air source heat pumps for their heat pump installation business, Clear Climate. This means Go Green students are not only guaranteed the very best facilities, but training from engineers and lecturers with an abundance of expertise in the industry.

Government funding is available for air source heat pump training and Go Green Training are in talks with several North East colleges with regards to incorporating this training into the curriculum of relevant courses.
