COURSE OVERVIEW

Skills Training Group fault-finding course is designed for installers or new students coming into the heating industry, who have little or no knowledge of boiler fault finding and want to improve or enhance their skills and practice in a comfortable welcoming, environment where all questions are welcome.

 

 


 

DAY 1 – FAULT FINDING

The day is jam-packed with practical tips, advice and hands-on learning, here are some of the things you will learn about:

 

  • How to use a multimeter and suitable voltage detectors quickly and efficiently.
  • Essential electrics – Understand resistance, current and voltage testing.
  • Component testing including:
    • Pumps standard & ERP.
    • Diverter Valves.
    • Switches – hydraulic, Electrical, Pneumatic & Electromechanical relationships
    • Safety & Operational sequence controls and the relationship to volatile lockout.
    • Temp sensors & stats
  • Heat exchangers & blockages – Non-invasive fault-finding techniques to save time and money.
  • A fresh approach to software faults.
  • System design overview.
  • System controls and ancillary equipment diagnostics.

 


 

DAY 2 – WIRING & CONTROLS COURSE

Our wiring course will help you understand the problems of wiring boilers and zone valves.

 

Here are some of the things you will learn about on our course:

 

  • 3 Port & 2 Port Controls: Control boards will be available on the course, so you can practice full systems with faults and wiring required from start to finish, just like they will be found in customer’s premise for you to work in a very realistic scenario.  It’s all great on a board right in front of you when you can see everything, but real life is more difficult.  We can show you how to identify cables and the components they are connected to when they are far away from each other.
  • Frost Protection: Often missing on installations, understand their importance.
  • Programmers & Smart Controls: Learn when, why and how to use them.
  • Zone Valves: Zone valves can have orange, white, brown or grey wires. Confused? You will understand and learn which wire goes where and why.
  • The Sequence of Wiring: Many installers and electricians don’t know there is one, perhaps that’s why so many mistakes are made.
  • Fault Finding: Flowcharts for all possible faults, testing room/cylinder stats with and without voltage using your multimeter, our easy to follow diagrams will show what’s wrong.
