SBS has launched an ‘Easy MCS™’ innovative training course, which offers 12 months of one-to-one mentor support and contains bespoke training software. The course is suitable for renewables installers and will be sold through Plumbing Trade Supplies (PTS) and City Plumbing Supplies (CPS).

The course consists of the award-winning Easy MCS™ support programme which includes an online quality management system (QMS) to offer step-by-step guidance and on-going compliance with standards over the course of a year. The bespoke QMS and cloud based online dashboard contains all required procedures, forms, record keeping and MCS paperwork; all designed specifically around the requirements of the delegate and their company. This is backed by mentor support to provide assistance ahead of the MCS assessment.

Each company also has access to a renewable software suite which provides design calculations for all major technologies, saving additional investment in separate design software.

Paul Joyner, Managing Director of SBS, said: “With the launch of the RHI, the number of renewable technology enquiries is expected to increase. It’s essential that we support installers who are looking to take advantage of this new stream of business and make their investment in training as valuable as possible; we believe there is no better way than to offer a step-by-step course which also provides tailored QMS solutions and mentor support through branches of both CPS and PTS.”
