The National Skills Academy (NSA)
Daikin UK working in conjunction with The National Skills Academy
Daikin Airconditioning UK has joined forces with The National Skills Academy for Environmental Technologies to create its first national Manufacturer Hub. The pioneering Daikin UK Manufacturer Hub is the first to be developed by the Skills Academy to provide bespoke training for an individual manufacturer’s products.
It will complement and interact with the Skills Academy’s network to enable trainees to gain qualifications in air-to-water heat pump technology, allowing them to work towards a Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) accreditation and be fully qualified to install Daikin renewable technology systems.
The aim is to increase the number of MCS accredited installers throughout the UK. Designed to offer assurances that products and services meet rigorous and consistent Government standards, easing any end-user concerns about adopting an innovative product or technology.
The Skills Academy provides training in the design, installation and maintenance of technologies such as solar thermal, photovoltaics, heat pumps, water harvesting and recycling. Comprising 23 ‘hub’ colleges, the Academy works to offer accredited environmental technologies training, all of which meets the requirements for MCS certification.
The Daikin UK Manufacturer Hub will initially be based at three of the vocational training venues, with whom Daikin UK has already formed working relationships. These venues include College of North West London, Dudley College and PGL Training in Exeter.
