CIPHE extends ADEY Training Centre accreditation

Published:  05 September, 2016

ADEY has received the latest accreditation from the Chartered Institute of Plumbing and Heating Engineering (CIPHE) for its training and conference centre.

The water treatment manufacturer's facility was first given the accolade in 2014 and this latest presentation extends its Approved Training Centre status for a further two years.

ADEY Professional Heating Solutions first opened the centre in 2013 following a £1 million investment and the refurbishment of its two-acre head office site in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire.

The 7,000sq ft facility provides an internal and external conference and meeting venue, as well as the space to host advanced and supervised training on the company's leading range of magnetic filters and premium MC+ chemicals.

Paul Williams, national president of the CIPHE, presented ADEY chief executive officer John Vaughan with the plaque.

Mr Williams said: "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."

"We’re delighted that the CIPHE has again recognised our Training and Conference Centre," said John Vaughan. "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."

As a venue used by both ADEY and its industry partners, the Training and Conference Centre also houses a boardroom, training and demonstration rooms, test rig laboratory and 100-seat auditorium.
