Level 3 Award in Energy Efficiency for Gas fired and Oil Fired Domestic Heating and Hot Water Systems
1 Day Course
Skills Training Group’s LCL Awards Energy Efficiency for Domestic Heating Certificate is for heating installers who work in domestic properties. The Energy Efficiency for Domestic Heating training course will enable operatives to “self-certificate” as required by the Approved Document L1A and L1B and the Domestic Building Services Compliance Guide 2018.
This course is updated to reflect the changes in the Boiler Plus scheme, in force from 6th April 2018.
The cost of the course includes training, assessment and the certification fee.
The key learning topics we cover on the course will include:
Know the regulatory requirements and sources of guidance for energy efficiency standards for gas-fired and oil-fired heating appliances connected to ‘wet’ heating circuits
Know the requirement of minimum boiler efficiency standards for gas-fired and oil-fired heating appliances connected to ‘wet’ heating circuits
Be able to determine if a non-condensing boiler installation would be acceptable
Know the requirement relating to space heating primary circuits type and design for gas-fired and oil-fired ‘wet’ heating systems
Know the compliance standards requirement for hot water storage vessels
Know the requirements relating to the preparation and water treatment of hot water systems and wet central heating systems
Know the requirements relating to the commissioning of hot water systems and wet central heating systems
Know the requirements of the minimum standards for the control of gas-fired and oil-fired wet central heating systems
Know the requirements of the minimum standards for the control of insulation of pipework for gas-fired and oil-fired wet central heating and hot water storage systems
Know the requirements relating to stand-alone, glandless heating system circulators
Very positive feedback from all staff who were on the training, great trainers and they made the topic interesting and easy to understand.

Do I need this course?
This course is required in order to comply with the Building Regulations Part L1A and L1B. It is also a prerequisite for our Air Source Heat Pump Course.
Energy efficiency is an important area of research because it has a direct impact on building performance and heating system efficiency. Energy efficiency measures aim to reduce building energy consumption, resulting in cost savings and lower carbon emissions.
Building codes have established energy efficiency standards that must be met by both new and existing structures. Heating installers, heating engineers, and design engineers all play important roles in ensuring that these standards are met. They must understand energy efficiency measures as well as ways to improve the performance of central heating systems.
As a Retrofit Assessor or heating engineer, you must understand energy efficient measures and be able to assess the energy performance of buildings. This allows you to advise and guide building owners on the most effective energy efficiency retrofits, assisting them in achieving maximum efficiency in their heating systems.
The Board of Energy Management also raises awareness about energy conservation and encourages building energy performance assessments. Heating engineers and installers can play an important role in reducing energy consumption, saving money, and lowering the carbon footprint of buildings by learning about energy efficiency.
What are Part L building regulations?
The Part L building regulations are a set of guidelines and standards put in place by the UK government to govern the energy efficiency of new and existing buildings. Part L of the Building Regulations Approved Documents in England and Wales outlines the minimum energy efficiency standards that buildings must meet.
Part L regulations address a wide range of energy efficiency issues, including insulation, heating, ventilation, and lighting. They want to make sure that new and renovated buildings are as energy-efficient as possible, lowering energy consumption, costs, and carbon emissions.
Part L regulations are updated on a regular basis to reflect technological advances and changes in energy-efficient building practises. As such, they play a critical role in promoting building energy efficiency and ensuring that the UK meets its carbon reduction targets.
