Continental Underfloor Heating, the UK’s largest specialist direct supplier of energy efficient heating systems to plumbers and builders, and one of Cornwall’s business success stories, has confirmed a long-term training contract with Exeter based Crisp CPD for its planned recruitment over the next 12 months.

Chris Ingram, Managing Director commented: “We wanted a company that we could outsource our new entrant training to enable our existing team to focus on their day jobs. Our plans to double the size of our team to meet market demand in the next 6 months needed a partner company that could add substantial value, take on board everything we have learnt about training new staff over the past 15 years and deliver it flexibly within our workplace."

“We also recognised that you can’t just train your new people, but have to top-up the skills of your existing team, and most importantly ensure our Managers and team leaders had the necessary coaching and mentoring skills to reinforce the training."

“Crisp CPD were chosen because we believed they could deliver across the board, and our experience since initiating the training 6 weeks ago has enabled us to confirm the longer contract.”

Continental relies upon a highly trained team of Technical Sales Advisors to be in contact with plumbers and builders across the UK, providing them with advice and solutions and delivering the Continental service that its customers have come to expect.

In the 15 years since Continental Underfloor started with just 3 people in the back of a farmhouse, it has grown substantially, winning various Business Awards along the way in recognition of how it has applied technology and used Super fast Broadband to reach its UK wide market.
