HETAS is offering 10 free job notifications for all new applications before the end of August this year. The offer applies to anyone applying to join the HETAS competent persons scheme for solid fuel, wood and biomass installations.
All new solid fuel, wood, or biomass installations in domestic dwellings must meet building regulations and the local authority must be notified of the work. There are two choices for meeting these legal requirements; either by applying for a building notice from the local authority, or HETAS registrants can self-certify their work for the category they are registered for.
HETAS said that the growth of the renewables sector has meant an increase in demand for solid fuel, wood and biomass installers – a trend that looks set to continue with the introduction of the renewable heat incentive.
Initiatives such as these, as well as HETAS' new biomass training course and Microgeneration Certification Scheme will help provide support for installers looking to take advantage of these opportunities.
