ADEY’s free online training sessions

ADEY has launched free online training sessions for plumbing and heating installers.

Adapting existing in-person training sessions to webinar-based courses was already in progress but the UK-wide lockdown kicked things up a gear for Adey, bringing the concept to reality in just a week.

Colin Yearp, Senior Technical Trainer at ADEY, comments, “It’s a digital age, and while lots of our customers love the in-person training we offer through our 17 training centres, just as many were calling for online courses to help them fit in their professional development. In the interest of safety, we postponed all face-to-face training courses until further notice during the COVID-19 lockdown.

“However, we were keen to continue to support our network of installers and the introduction of online courses delivered through webinars and e-learning has given ADEY and installers great flexibility to learn whilst in the home. We’re really proud of our team for being able to bring the launch forward to help at this time.”

The first webinar session went live on Thursday 2nd April and, within the first two weeks, the company has delivered online training to more than 600 installers.

One of the first to take part in an ADEY webinar was Krisztian Winkler from Winkler Heating, who comments: “The webinars are great and very useful. The session on chemicals explained clearly what biocides are for and where to use them, and the fact that the MC3+ cleaner doesn’t foam made me realise I have been using the wrong product for cleaning systems and plates. The training has answered so many questions – essential information for everyone who really wants to know their stuff, especially for boiler breakdowns.”

“We have space for up to 100 people on each of our online sessions,” continues Colin. “We’ve been over-subscribed for nearly every one of them, so we are working hard to put on more slots to help as many installers access the courses as we can. As I’ve been telling our delegates, ‘learning is earning’ and the knowledge gained right now can be a real benefit to their business once they are able to return to work full time.”

The current ADEY online course catalogue consists of: MagnaCleanse training Domestics filters; what to fit, when? Commercial filters and water treatment Water Testing; what, when, why? *Chemicals explained

Building on the company’s Best Practice approach, ADEY has also launched a certified e-learning module to help installers advance their knowledge and understanding of water treatment. Each installer who passes the course will receive Adey certification, enhancing the service they can offer customers and helping to further protect the UK’s heating systems.
