Since the early 2000's we have been offering registration schemes for heating technicians working in the off-gas grid sector in the UK and Republic of Ireland. Our registered technicians have access to a range of useful services and benefits and are widely respected in the heating industry.

Our registered technicians benefit from the support of our marketing campaigns which include national and regional press and social media coverage in the UK and Republic of Ireland.

Strong relationships with all regional authorities mean that we can keep our registered technicians informed of any changes to regulations in their local area.
