UK’s first accredited heat metering course developed

Decerna are proud to announce that working with industry and government they have created of the UK’s first accredited Heat Metering training course

The Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI), set up to support renewable heat generation in the domestic sector, is now up and running and is offering tariff payments for supported technologies. In order for systems to be RHI compliant, installations must be made meter-ready and in most cases, applicants will require metering for payments to the system owner.

This new qualification is aimed at all staff involved in the selection, positioning or installation of heat meters in accordance with MCS and RHI Metering Guidance. It covers the knowledge and understanding of the requirements for metering renewable heat installations, including how to select, position, install and commission heat meters and components. The qualification has been designed and led by industry, including the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC), Ofgem, Beama, Hetas, Summit Skills and MCS.

Not only were NDE instrumental in the creation of this course, but the NDE Renewable Energy Training Centre in Blyth is the first training centre to be accredited for the delivery of this course.
