Ideal takes training out of the classroom

Published:  20 August, 2014

Ideal Boilers is bringing its mobile unit to installers, so they can take advantage of free training courses.

The company has two 'Training Centres of Excellence' in Reading and Leeds, with satellite centres in Scotland, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.

The mobile unit was introduced for customers who cannot make it to these centres.

Ideal's training manager Scott Young is keen to encourage installers to take advantage of the training options on offer. "Our free training sessions offer installers an opportunity to gain valuable updated technical training," he said.

"The mobile training centre of excellence is ideal for larger groups where there are four or five installers needing to update their knowledge or training. Installers can get hands-on with three working and three ‘dry’ boilers and also enjoy a great workshop atmosphere, where they can talk to their peers, problem-solving and sharing knowledge."
