Level 3 Award in Low Temperature Heating and Hot Water Systems in Dwellings
1.5 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.
With the assistance of their members, the CIPHE and the Heat Pump Association created this certification to address the requirement that all heating systems be built with a low temperature target from the outset in order to maximise system efficiency. This qualification’s goal is to upskill learners in the idea of low-temperature heating systems. It will enable them to show that they have the knowledge and understanding necessary to install low-temperature heating and hot water systems in homes.
The key learning topics we cover on the course will include:
know the latest industry standards and regulatory framework relating to heating design
know the requirements for undertaking a room by room heat loss for a property
know how to correctly size heat emitters for low temperature heating systems
know how to correctly size pumps and pipework
know how to correctly size a domestic hot water system
know the basic design principles of system configurations
Very positive feedback from all staff who were on the training, great trainers and they made the topic interesting and easy to understand.
