    I can see the benefits in it but forgive me for being skeptical but I have been waiting for years for it to come in! Yes there will be a premium payment this year but when is the RHI going to come into force and what are the figures it's not easy trying to sell renewables to somebody when you can't quote any figures to your customers. You say the only people to lose out are heat pump manufacturers but the way I see it the losers are those that have spent money on courses for solar thermal and heat pumps etc when if we'd spent our hard earned cash on a solar PV course we'd be quids in

Easy mcs was created with good intrusions to simplify the process of creating the mcs which in your own words is a barrier for installers but I have certainly spent my time in your position and I hope the service easy mcs offers is value for money. But I can assure you we don't wright the standards or advise on them we just take down a barrier that may prevent other installers gaining mcs.Easy mcs is only here to help where needed and I fully understand the costs involved in gaining mcs as I did it for myself prior to joining. I hope this shows that we are not just a faceless organisation and I would apprecite the chance to meet with yourself so you can see for yourself that I personally will assist fellow heating engineers in any way I can around gaining mcs be that in free seminars or discussing barriers to present to the certification bodies to develop a solution that not only conforms with the regulation but works for all involved. If you would like to take me up on a meeting please pm your details and I will contact you to discuss further.
    Hi EasyMCS
    I would be more than willing to meet up, I am afraid as an Installer I am not as eloquant a campaigner as MickW and my reasons for refusing to join the MCS is physical cost, the rediculous QMS and the fact that it is further splintering our industry, and more importantly is the fact that it is my belief that customers are not being protected.
    I appreciate the time you are offering in meeting me and I fully hope that you will not find it a waste of time.
    if its not dangerous Im not doing it
    im not here to be helpfull! How am I doing?

Will say would never of completed this without the qms. Afraid it's way above my business level. As I've said before I really like the enquiries, invoice, risk assessment, parts etc but the meetings etc for 1 man bands are ridiculous

    righty where do I start,

    Was not expecting that, what a piece of ****, seriously never had an easier day, lovely bloke, went through my qms with a fine tooth comb, total time spent on paperwork and site visit 4 hours, rset of time spoke about work and campervans, in his own words " youve absolutely nailed this"

    just need my certificate from REAL and im done. Must say the easymcs qms helped me walk it, honestly cant believe how easy it was.
