Travis Perkins plc, supported by Sustainable Building Solutions (SBS), has answered the call of time-pressured installers by revolutionising its Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) training solutions and introducing the UK’s first ‘e-learning’ RHI training modules.

The innovative e-learning packages have been developed by SBS’ official partner PPL Training to make it simple and convenient for installers to affordably meet their RHI installation requirements. The online courses offer a blended learning approach, combining a professional presenter led e-learning module, with traditional tutor led assessments. The online courses include heat pumps, solar thermal hot water, and Part L Energy Efficiency.

When combined with the other innovative services offered by Travis Perkins plc and SBS, including MCS software, certification, and the required building materials, the training completes a truly end to end solution for customers.

Paul Joyner, Managing Director of SBS, said: “We are continually listening and reacting to industry needs and recognise that a flexible training approach, such as e-learning, is a beneficial resource for time-pressed installers. It’s our aim to create a truly single resource of advice for the customers of Travis Perkins.

“The additional offer of the PPL Training e-learning modules, which are specifically targeted to meet the requirements of the RHI, is a first for the Group and offers yet more options for our customers. From training, to specification, right through to ordering products via a trade account, we’re making it even easier for installers to make the most of the RHI.”
