Highly recommended training
Dimplex’s training courses are helping installers, specifiers and other industry professionals to access the lucrative and rapidly-growing solar PV market, with an in-depth knowledge of the technology and an industry-recognised qualification.

Reg Clifton of QED (UK) attended the Dimplex solar PV training course earlier this year. A chartered engineer and quality specialist with nearly 50 years’ experience across a wide variety of sectors including defence, facilities management and, in recent years, construction, these days Reg offers services as a consultant and project manager. He’s already a Dimplex accredited heat pump installer, and also writes layman’s guides to new technologies such as heat pumps and solar PV, so he needs to be knowledgeable in all aspects of the industry.

He said: “My involvement with solar PV at the moment tends to be on the system design side, but I find it’s extremely useful to have a full understanding of the whole installation process.


“The Dimplex PV course is very concentrated. The trainers are excellent and every aspect is covered. Plus, of course, in my view the company makes quality products – I’ve worked with Dimplex equipment since the 1960s and I always recommend it and specify it for a wide variety of projects.

“It’s a time of terrific change in the industry. The renewables market is growing rapidly, offering great opportunities. But both the market and the technology are changing so quickly, you’ve got to work at keeping up to date, in order to be able to give the best advice on projects, and to the public.

“I have recommended the Dimplex solar PV course to the companies that I work with, as I believe it cannot be bettered.”

Dimplex’s solar PV course also provides recognised training competency towards installer certification under the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS). Once MCS certificated, attendees will be able to access grant funding for their customers for any installations completed.
