This course is for plumbing and heating engineers who want to install Domestic Hot Water Storage Systems
Course Information for Students
Who is this course for?
This course is for plumbing and heating engineers who want to install Domestic Hot Water Storage Systems, and will help them demonstrate their competence so they can either join a Competent Persons Scheme allowing the self-certification of installations, or notify the local Building Control Department prior to commencing work.
Trainees must hold a recognised trade qualification e.g. NVQ/SNVQ Level 3 in Plumbing and Heating, or Domestic Heating, which will include Water Regulations.
Alternatively, they should be working towards one of these qualifications or have evidence of a number of years’ experience in the plumbing or heating industry and hold a Water Regulations Certificate.
What will you learn?
This very comprehensive course starts with intensive training in the four modules, followed by the completion of three assessments, including one practical. Candidates must successfully pass all three assessments to gain the BPEC Domestic Hot Water Storage Systems Certificate and Competency Card.
This will allow the individual/business to register with a Competent Persons Scheme, allowing the self certifying of unvented hot water storage systems installations.
If you choose not to join a Competent Persons Scheme, you will need to notify the local Building Control Department.
How will you learn?
This course will be delivered on-site.
What will you need to bring with you?
No special equipment is required.
How will you be assessed?
Assessments normally consist of a combination of practical and theory examinations.
Certificates are normally valid for five years. On expiry, candidates are eligible to take re-assessment. The re-assessment can be taken up to six months prior to the expiry date of the initial qualification without losing out (MOT style). Previous certificates must be presented to the assessment centre as evidence that the candidate holds the initial qualification.
