  • COURSE OVERVIEW

    Skills Training Group’s Hot Water Systems and Safety (HWSS) course supersedes the unvented cylinders course and now covers all hot water systems.

     

    The HWSS curriculum has been updated due to the G3 Building Regulation being revised. The HWSS course includes content from the old qualification as well as new content from the new HWSS course.

     

    The course takes one day to complete and covers training & assessment using a mixture of theory multiple choice questions, short written response and practical tasks.

     

    Learners who have the previous Unvented Hot Water Certification are eligible to be re-assessed.

     

    The HWSS course is recognised by Competent Person Schemes (CPS) approved to offer self-certification under Approved Document G.

     

    Course costs include training & assessment fees, certification costs and a training manual.
