The Association of Plumbing & Heating Contractors’ sister company APHC Training Ltd, is offering a new and improved training grant scheme for 2013, open to all bona fide plumbing and heating companies.
APHC Training are now offering £100 training grants to members and non members who want to keep an existing qualified employee up to date on their training.
John Thompson, Chief Executive of APHC, commented: “We had such a fantastic response to the scheme in previous years that we wanted to extend the amount people could claim. We want to help people upskill and maintain a fully trained and qualified workforce during the continuing economic difficulties. I would encourage members and non-members alike to apply and claim their £100 grant today.”
Any interested companies, both members and non-members, must email firstname.lastname@example.org, adding ‘Training Grant’ in the subject line. They will then be emailed a form to complete and return for initial grant approval, which also details the scheme’s operating conditions. The relevant forms can also be downloaded from the APHC website (http://www.aphc.co.uk/training_information.asp). After they have completed a course (which must be done by the end of 2013), applicants must send a copy of their invoice from the training provider along with their certificate of successful completion of the course, and APHC will pay the £100 straight into their business bank account. The £100 offer is available to anyone who claimed a grant during previous years.
