Course Summary

This course is for anyone requiring an understanding of water regulations/water byelaws. In particular it supports those wishing to become approved plumbers/contractors.

Successful candidates are encouraged to join an approved plumbers/contractors scheme, such as those managed by SNIPEF, APHC, CIPHE, WIAPS, and the regional water utility companies. This enables them to issue a certificate of completion to both the householder and water company. (Please note that other industry-related qualifications may be required to join these schemes.)

Some self-study will be required prior to the programme's College day.

Entry requirements

Trainees will need to have some knowledge of plumbing and the water industry.  Some self-study prior to attending College will be required.

Course Content

Manuals consist of 12 modules, an introduction and a glossary. This very comprehensive course starts with intensive training in the 12 modules, followed by the completion of the assessments. There are no practical elements – all training is theoretical. Candidates must successfully pass all the assessments to gain the WRAS/BPEC Water Regulations/Byelaws certificate.

How will I be assessed?

You will be assessed by paper-based assessment at the end of a day of recap and revision of the self-study book. If you pass, you will be awarded a Water Regulations certificate.

Are there any additional costs or specialist equipment required?

No equipment will be required.

What can I do after this course?

You could progress to an unvented hot water course or other related plumbing course or qualification.

Former apprentice plumber Ryan aims to give a start to “people like me”

Self-employed plumber Ryan Pearch is hoping to kick-start the careers of Derby College apprentices just like himself a decade ago. College Peak Award winner Ryan took Level 2 Plumbing as a full-time course and Level 3 part-time as an apprentice.    
 
But his job did not offer training in gas work, which meant he found himself dropping behind his fulltime Level 3 counterparts. It was through a combination of Ryan’s personal commitment and the support of his lecturers – “brilliant, every one of them’’ – that he passed all of his modules.    
 
He is now hoping to expand his business Pearch Plumbing & Heating to “employ people like me."    
 
Ryan has been self-employed for a year after gaining further qualifications and experience in the industry. He said: “We’re really, really, busy. I do boilers, floor heating, bathrooms, kitchens…everything to do with plumbing in the house.  
 
The plan is to get bigger and to take people on – and hopefully employ people like me, who are looking for a job as an apprenticeship.”

Level 3 is all about gas and that meant the other students were doing it day in and day out but I wasn’t because my job didn’t operate in that area.


I asked for extra work to do at home and the college was helpful with that. Phil Stone was the lecturer and he was really good. In fact, the lecturers were brilliant, every one of them. 


The courses were excellent for me and it was nice to receive the recognition of a Derby College Peak Award.”
