What you will learn
This course will teach you how, with minimal previous knowledge or experience, to install solid fuel stoves into homes.
Your tutors Finn and Nick, who run their own stove installation company, will guide you through a practical and straightforward two days in CAT’s purpose-built training rooms.
CAT is a fully independent training centre so you’ll get the opportunity to understand and work with a range of stoves, giving you the breadth of experience and knowledge few other training providers in the UK can offer.
By the end of the course you will have experience of installing at least three stoves in a safe and supervised environment before carrying out installations in someone’s home.
It is not possible to cover all situations but your experienced tutor will have time to answer questions and discuss scenarios both in lessons and during breaks and mealtimes.
The course will also include key information on the regulations, the testing of the flues and on the health and safety implications of the work.
This course, and the installations carried out on it, may be used to form part of your application to attend the HETAS H003DS dry installers course and can be taken after the H003DS if booked together.
