Amazing course, would recommend to anyone in the industry looking to better and expand their knowledge. Just looking forward to putting it all into practice. PDHW on all future systems and "FLOW IS KING"
It’s changed the way I think about heating and answered many questions I just couldn’t get out of asking other engineers I know. Would recommend to anyone in the industry and the way the course is set out really works well, on the second day it all comes together. The time and effort kimbo’s put into making the hydronic’s manual is worth the price of the course alone.
I think the way to sum this course up is that out of the 14 guys on the course none of us could care less how late we finished. I have been a heating engineer for 22 years and this is by far the best course I have been on and Kim really is a treasure of our industry. I would highly recommend to anyone of any experience.
Sweltered in the classroom for two days, but worth it to learn from Kimbo Betty from Heating Academy Northampton.
It's the course every heating installer should do, to fill in the gaps, the missing parts of our patchy education, to give you a stronger foundation.
I only went along to learn more about sizing and understanding pump graphs, as I already knew everything else, flow, velocity, close-coupled tees, separation and PDHW.
Or so I thought!
Kimbo likes to see that 'lightbulb moment' when the missing pieces finally fall into place. I had a number of those moments, thanks to Kimbo the lightbulb moments were LED and not incandescent.
His best asset is being able to break down really complex information into easy-to-understand lessons. The average heating installer doesn't spend his day working in kilopascals or joules, we work in litres per minute/hour and kW - and that's what makes it easy to absorb.
Flow is King!
Best course I have been on in the heating industry. Massive eye opener into hydraulics and pipe sizing. Would recommend to any heating engineer who wants to expand there knowledge
This was the second time I have done Kim’s course and all I can say is it’s the best value for money course I have attended in the heating industry. I like how more content has been added over time, surely this is going to turn into a 3 day event at point? Kim’s passion for the subject is evident in the way he is able to deliver the information to eager ears in simplified easy to understand way. Worth every penny.
A very interesting course delivery by an experienced engineer who obviously understands his topic and explains it very well. Now i just need to put it into practise.
Turned up to find an old man that never stops talking. Kimbo looks like that engineer customer that asks you to explain every little thing you are doing. Turns out he is that kind of bloke but he has found out the information to help you understand and get answers for whatever issue you may have. Having completed a lot of training in my 12 years in the industry, I have never experienced anything like this. The information is repeated very cleverly to help you understand it. It doesnt ever feel like you are going over things repeatedly even though you are. There is always a very slight difference to the information to help you understand and get to grips with the maths behind the magic and break it down to bitesize chunks rather then overloading the brain with too much information. I just wish that kimbo could clone himself to make sure all courses were like this and our industry would be in a much better place.
If you are considering booking a place then just do it. You may not use the information provided but when you do come across any issues it will help you understand why you have issues and understand the issue rather then just accepting it will be an issue forever and making the same mistakes over and over again.
I wouldn't have any hesitation in recommending this course to all in the industry who want to expand their knowledge of Heating and hydronics. Kimbo instantly captivates his audience with his enthusiasm, knowledge and dedication to the Heating industry with a clear and concise delivery coupled with a friendly (your now part of my heating family) feel. Even though they are quite full on days I wished they could have continued on for longer to have the opportunity to soak up even more of his vast knowledge. I hope that the next generation of plumbing and heating engineers in this country will take the opportunity to be inspired at the beginning of their careers by industry role models like Kimbo to push carbon reduction goals using low temperature heating, push innovation, and make a real difference towards achieving a more sustainable future for us all.
This will be the best money you will spend on a course. Kim has a passion for hydronics and the ability to get the best out of it. His knowledge and delivery is spot on and the research and efforts he has put in to produce a resource for the everyday engineer is worth the course fee on its own. The amount of ‘Light Bulb’ moments when it all makes sense!! A course designed for engineers by a real engineer.
I now have the knowledge and tools to put efficiency back into heating.
