Vision – Mark Glasgow
Business expert Mark Glasgow is investing 3 3 million in a series of energy training centers around Scotland to improve the industry’s skills shortage.
Construction of the first power training academy in the capital has already begun for Glagow and Northeast.
The Edinburgh Institute will be completed in November.
“For some time now, our vision and industry have been shifting to sustainable heating technologies.
“I feel that now is the time to move forward with my plans,” said Glasgow, owner of Edinburgh Boiler and Glasgow Boiler.
“The next few years will be crucial in our industry. He sees the current shortage of skills as an industry, and I thought it was important to provide a modern training center with a focus on renewable energy.
“Initially this will be in Edinburgh and the plan is to extend regional education centers around Scotland by establishing regional training centers.
We have recently added heat pumps to our installation services list and many improvements are in the pipeline.
As we want to continue to lead the way in home heating in Scotland, the academy will employ engineers who want to train young teenagers and teach our current installation and maintenance staff ‘home’.
“There will also be adult education programs suitable for the gas / renewable engineer who wants to enter this growing sector.
“We will have a variety of courses that focus on renewable energy, and we will use some of the best teachers and coaches in the business. We will be a one-stop shop for theory and practice to start new training at our academy and then we will do the most important portfolio work on site with our experienced engineers company.
Edinburgh Boiler Company Founded in 2015, it is the city’s largest boiler installation.
Mr Glasgow said: “The significant investment we are making in the Energy Training Academy will enhance not only the training possible for our staff but also our commitment to providing the best possible service to our customers.”
