Pegler Yorkshire launches range of CPD modules
Personal and professional development is critical to employees and employers to allow individuals and companies to grow and prosper.
With this in mind, plumbing and heating manufacturer, Pegler Yorkshire, has launched a portfolio of Continuous Personal Development (CPD) modules which are suitable for industry professionals across a variety of sectors.
"Ongoing training is a very important part of career development. With new products entering the market and changes to legislation affecting the construction and plumbing industries we feel our online training portal is a hugely effective way of promoting ongoing learning," explains Phill Jackson, marketing and business development director Pegler Yorkshire. "Initially, we have selected topics which will benefit a wide cross section of people from installers and contractors to specifiers and consultants, and more modules will be coming very soon as we continue to build on our training programmes."
The online training modules, which can be accessed via 'My PY' on the company's new website, cover general topics such as; Central Heating, Taps & Mixers, Metal Push-fit & Commissioning. Additionally, the manufacturer is continuing to develop a portfolio of CPD site seminars which currently include; the Importance of Anti-Microbial taps in infection control for healthcare sectors, Safety & Efficiency of Water Systems in line with Part G of Building Regulations and the Code for Sustainable Homes, as well as a module detailing how heat interface units support heat distribution networks to deliver environmental and cost saving efficiencies.
The Heat Distribution, Metering & Control training module, for example, focuses on system types, applications, influences and climate solutions particularly focusing on heat interface units (HIU's) and the benefits they can bring. It, as well as the other modules, includes a host of industry-related statistics and facts to deliver enhanced levels of knowledge
"The Heat Distribution module is particularly relevant as 2015 sees the start of a local council study into the benefits that a Heat Interface Unit (HIU) can bring to heat networks," said Phill. "Furthermore this particular CPD module has gained accreditation from the Chartered Institute of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) for its industry relevance, and will be used by them as a benchmark for other manufacturers and training providers so that learning for all in the industry can be achieved."
More CPD training modules will continue to be uploaded onto the Pegler Yorkshire website throughout the year.
To access the modules individuals can simply create a 'My PY' account in the 'Links' section of the website and companies can contact the Pegler Yorkshire team direct to book a presentation or fill in the online 'Book a Seminar' form.
