Samsung Climate Solutions appoints new training manager Scott Young

Samsung Climate Solutions are delighted to welcome Scott Young (TMIET) to lead our expanding training programme. With over 30 years’ experience as a qualified gas engineer for boiler and controls manufacturers, and 18 of those as a training manager, Scott brings valuable insights to delivering industry leading training programmes, particularly for those much needed engineers upskilling to install heat pumps.

Speaking on what attracted him to the business, Scott Young commented:

“Samsung’s commitment and drive to being the market leader in many different technology categories was one of the main attractions to being offered an opportunity to work with Samsung Climate Solutions. With the big push to reduce CO2 emissions complemented by changes to UK building regulations, moving to Samsung has given me the opportunity to be at the forefront of this drive towards change.”

The need for training of this kind has escalated in recent years as the heat pump market in the UK has grown 64% from 2020 to 2021. By 2025 the Future Homes Standard legislation will make installing a low carbon heat source, such as a heat pump, mandatory in all new builds.

Having experience in both product and industry standard training, such as ACS modules, water regulations and G3 hot water certification courses, Scott is well placed to oversee the expansion of Samsung training capabilities, particularly in aiding the upskilling of HVAC engineers to installing heat pumps.

Scott added,

“Since the COVID 19 pandemic, we have seen the way changes to product training have developed. The pandemic saw an increase in webinar based training so that important lines of communication could be kept open with installers. In a hybrid working world now, e-learning content has a key part to play as it fits around an installers busy work schedule. I am currently creating e-learning modules to help give that flexibility to the Samsung heat pump installers of the future, along with other exciting projects to come.”
