Unvented hot water training and certification is a requirement for any plumber who wants to work on unvented hot water systems. Part G3 of the Building Regulations defines unvented hot water systems as a “controlled service”. As such, it is a legal requirement that all unvented hot water installations are notified to the local Building Control department.
Most plumbers will be aware that at some point in the near future water will be classified as a controlled service. As such it will be essential that anyone working with a water system has the appropriate training and knowledge of water regulations.
This energy efficiency training course is primarily aimed at plumbers but could be useful for others including gas engineers and renewable energy installers. You will need to be City & Guilds Level 2 (6129) qualified in order to take this course.
