Solid fuel training courses at METAC

The solid fuel awareness course is a one-day training programme aimed at providing participants with the knowledge to enable them to assist customers in choosing the correct solid fuel appliance and to recognise the correct installation and fuel requirements.

The dry solid fuel stove installer course is a five-day training course for construction professionals and aims to provide participants with the knowledge and understanding to enable them to install dry stoves to meet requirements of customers, building regulations and standards. On successful completion, candidates will receive an OFTEC 15-108-IRL (Dry) certificate.

The wet solid fuel stove installer course is a further three days for plumbers with an OFT15-108 IRL (Wet) certificate. This includes both open heating systems and interlinking heating systems. These courses are designed to meet current demands as advised by industry leaders who were directly involved in the development of all three courses.
