Over the course of the next few weeks, a technical training and certification programme on planning, installing and servicing heat pumps in single family homes is taking place in Upper Austria.

Targeted at installers, planners, energy advisors, customer service technicians, building technology providers and property developers, the programme will contribute to increasing expertise on heat pumps and the number of highly qualified heat pump installers on the market. Training by technical experts is supplemented with hand-on experience gained through site visits. The programmes is offered by the OÖ Energiesparverband (the regional energy agency of Upper Austria) in cooperation with the Austrian Heat Pump Association (Wärmepumpe Austria) and the Austrian Institute of Technology (AIT).
