The Association of Plumbing & Heating Contractors’ sister company APHC Training Ltd, a registered charity, is continuing to offer its successful training grants as the year progresses.
After the success of the 2011 scheme, APHC Training decided to extend the scheme to provide funding throughout the year for plumbing and heating companies who wish to keep an existing qualified employee up to date on their training. Companies who received a grant in 2011 can still apply again in 2012 for the £60 grant, all they need to do is complete the grant form before completing the course.
John Thompson, Chief Executive of APHC, commented: “After the success of the scheme last year we wanted to ensure that as many plumbing and heating companies as possible had the opportunity to claim their £60 grant. The grant is still available throughout this year and we welcome more applications from member and non member companies alike.”
Any interested companies, both members and non-members, must email firstname.lastname@example.org, putting ‘Training Grant’ in the subject line. They will be sent a form to fill in, which also details the scheme’s operating conditions and allocates a grant to them. After they have completed a course (which must be done by the end of 2012), applicants send a copy of their invoice from the training provider along with their certificate of successful completion of the course, and APHC will put the £60 straight into their business bank account. The £60 offer is not available to anyone who has already claimed a grant during 2012.
