Funded Heat Network Training

Government funded training from Chirpy Heat                                                                                                

We are delighted to be a Government Heat Network Training Provider, enabling us to provide grant-funded courses for the heat network and housing sectors.

 Heat Networks are complex and present a technical challenge, but above all they are a management challenge. Chirpy Heat training brings together these two elements so that technical and management teams can understand each other and create a common language so together they are able to make heat networks better.

We offer three grant-funded courses open to all: 


Heat Network Operation and Maintenance for Housing Providers

This course will empower housing providers to become stronger more effective client for heat networks: through more effective procurement, oversight of contractors and understanding accountability in network design, delivery, operation and maintenance. This will also help you maximise the benefits of your investment in heat networks.

Heat Network Operation and Maintenance for the Supply Chain

This course will enable the supply chain to meet the challenges and opportunities in the sector and to help clients deliver better heat networks. It will provide best practice knowledge to operate and maintain heat networks more effectively and help to maximise the benefits of client investment in networks.

Strategic Approaches to Heat Networks for Housing Providers and Developers

This course will enable housing providers to deliver the vision of low cost, low carbon and reliable heat networks. It will help map the strategic course for heat networks within the stock, ensure compliance with regulations and prepare for future policy changes. It will provide the knowledge and confidence to engage in discussion about heat networks with residents and stakeholders and with the supply chain.

What our trainees say...

“We greatly benefited from our recent heat network training sessions with Chirpy where the business was able to obtain a more in-depth understanding of the legal ramifications of non-compliance…  The training session provided a much-needed overview of the various heat network requirements, the importance of delivering efficient heat networks, and the implications of current and upcoming regulations.”
