The Household Electrical and Electronic Servicing Training (HEEST) Forum

As part of our commitment to training, AMDEA is a core particpant and supporter of the Household Electrical and Electronic Servicing (HEEST) Forum.
HEEST was set up in 2009 as a successor to the Electrical and Electronics Servicing Council. The new Forum wanted to create new nationally accredited servicing qualifications and set up a network to deliver them.

There are six qualifications available, covering installation and repair for both white and brown goods. These are also integrated into a formal apprenticeship standard that qualifies for Government funding.

The colleges currently delivering the qualifications are; Gower College Swansea, Birmingham Metropolitan College, Lincoln College, London Rail Academy and West Suffolk College.
