OFTEC has launched a 12 month registration option for both individuals and companies. The new annual registration offers a flexible short-term alternative to the existing five-year registration, which is still available.

Registration services director Jacqueline Crawford said: “OFTEC registration offers a competitive advantage for oil heating technicians who can self-certify their work and offer this as a benefit to customers. The current economic climate can put extra pressure on cash flow and resources for many businesses and OFTEC wants to make sure we support technicians by making registration as flexible as possible.”
Annual registration is just one of a series of initiatives which OFTEC has recently introduced. Direct debit payment options are available for both individual and business five-year registration periods, helping to spread payments and ease cash flow. New applications can now be made online, and registrations can be renewed over the phone, with an option to pay by credit card.
Qualifications obtained from OFTEC-approved training centres will remain valid for five years as provided by UKAS accredited certification bodies.
