Sevenoaks Energy Academy offer BPEC training and assessment for the installation of Vented and Unvented Domestic Hot Water Storage Systems (G3). The course is designed to meet the training requirements of the appropriate Building Regulations and Standards.
For England & Wales the training manual provides an introduction to and understanding of the requirements of the Approved Document G3, Part L1 and Part P of the Building Regulations. For Scotland, the manual is very similar but references Part J of the Building Standards.
Both training manuals consist of four modules covering:
- Vented & Unvented hot water storage systems and their operating principles
- Design and installation of Vented & Unvented hot water storage systems
- Maintenance of Vented & Unvented hot water storage systems
- Compliance with Building Regulations
Comprehensive training in the four modules is followed by the completion of three assessments including one practical assessment. Candidates must successfully pass all three assessments in order to gain the BPEC Vented and Unvented Domestic Hot Water Storage Systems certificate and competency card.
Candidates must have:
- A number of years experience in plumbing or conventional heating
- Hold a formal craft qualification such as NVQ level 3 in in plumbing or heating engineering
The course is aimed at plumbers and heating engineers who wish to install Vented and Unvented Domestic Hot Water Storage Systems. Successful completion of the assessment will allow the installer to demonstrate competence in the installation of Vented and Unvented Domestic Hot Water Storage Systems in order to join a Competent Persons’ Scheme which will allow the self-certification of installations. If the installer does not wish to join such a scheme it will demonstrate competency to the local Building Control department when submitting Building Control Notices prior to commencing work.
