Derby College Group has teamed up with a leading boiler and heat pump manufacturer to launch its new training facility, which will support and upskill current and future installers.

Ideal Heating, part of Groupe Atlantic, has been providing central heating boilers to the domestic as well as heating solutions to commercial markets since 1906.

The DCG training suite is its first partnership with a UK college to include its full range of equipment including high-efficiency boilers and air source heat pumps.

The training suite has been developed at DCG’s Roundhouse technical and professional skills college on Derby’s Pride Park where Ideal Heating’s team will deliver expert training and share their knowledge with the college’s teaching staff as part of their professional development.

DCG’s assistant principal for technology, Brian Malyan, said: “Having the latest training equipment installed here at college is beneficial not only to the local and regional companies who are installing Ideal Heating’s equipment in homes and commercial premises but also to our students and apprentices who are the installers of the future.

“Our relationship with Ideal Heating is therefore a win/win for the company, local installers and the college alike.”
