The Chartered Institute of Plumbing and Heating Engineering (CIPHE) has extended ADEY’s accreditation for its training and conference centre.
The water treatment manufacturing firm’s facility was first given the accolade two years ago and this latest accreditation will extend its Approved Training Centre status for two further years.
ADEY Professional Heating Solutions first opened the facility three years ago after a £1 million investment and the refurbishment of its two acre head office site in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire.
The 7,000 sq ft site provides an internal and external conference and meeting venue, along with space to host advanced and supervised training on the firm’s leading range of magnetic filters and premium MC+ chemicals.
National President of the CIPHE, Paul Williams, presented ADEY Chief Executive Officer John Vaughan with the plaque.
Williams commented: “To have such a fantastic training venue on site is a real string to ADEY’s bow. We place great emphasis on training at the CIPHE and it’s clear that it’s something ADEY is passionate about too, whether that’s supporting youngsters just entering the trade or more established installers.”
Meanwhile, Vaughan said that ADEY is delighted to have its Training and Conference Centre recognised by CIPHE once again.
He added: “We’ve hosted a huge variety of events over the last three years including the finals of the HIP UK Heating Apprentice of the Year competition, training sessions for boiler manufacturers, installer events and seminars. It’s been a valuable addition to our head office and is a great way to continue to showcase ADEY as we’ve grown.”
The Training and Conference Centre is a venue used by both ADEY and its industry partners, and also houses a boardroom, training and demonstration rooms, 100 seat auditoriums and a test rig laboratory.
CIPHE recently appointed Paul Harmer as the company’s new Technical Director, who will work on some exciting new initiatives to support the institute’s technical development.
