Training rewards worth £150 are available to give away to 100 plumbing and heating companies, from APHC (Training).
The educational charity, which is sister company to the Association of Plumbing & Heating Contractors (APHC), administers the reward scheme to help safeguard the long-term professional development of the industry by incentivising plumbing and heating engineers to update their knowledge and gain new skills.
The £150 reward can be used for a certificated course with a recognised training provider such as APHC, BPEC, City & Guilds and all UKAS approved ACS providers.
Graeme Dryden (pictured), technical services manager at APHC, said: "The £150 reward is available to all plumbing and heating companies in England and Wales regardless of whether they are a member of APHC. The reward can be used by companies to help employee development through a wide range of topics from Building Regulations to Gas Accreditation to Renewable Technologies and Water Regulations. A detailed breakdown of qualifying courses can be found on our website."
Under the scheme, 25 training rewards will be available to claim each quarter and will be issued on a first-come-first-served basis.
"I would urge interested companies to apply without delay as in previous years uptake has been high," added Mr Dryden.
In order to receive the reward, companies are required to send a copy of the training course invoice along with the successful course completion certificate to APHC, who will then pay for the cost of the course, up to £150, into the employer's business bank account.
