Training Academy

Equipping you with the skills to succeed

Our £2m Training Academy

We are committed to helping the UK achieve their net zero ambitions, and after identifying a shortage of skilled specialists within the district heating sector, we developed a state-of-the-art Training Academy to help close the skills gap facing the industry and support the workforce that is set to deliver the UK’s low-carbon future. The Training Academy aims to be a centre of excellence, and is home to a 60-seater lecture theatre and seminar-style classrooms, providing pioneering demonstrative training resources and collaborative programmes.

The Academy features two purpose-built demonstration trenches, one internal and one external, which will be used to teach you about techniques such as jointing and welding pipes, insulation processes and moisture control. Training on buried underground services, and smart end user products including heat interface units, and metering and billing electronic platforms is also available. All of our products are displayed for demonstration and the Academy has dedicated areas for testing these.

"The Training Academy has so much to offer. There are dedicated areas which provide a better understanding of the day to day operations at Vital, with example district heating pipes in a trench and a heat interface unit for hands-on learning. This is very helpful as you can take your time and ask questions, and expand your knowledge about your specific role."
