Our 2024 programme of online Plumbing and Heating Training courses has been announced and include: Legionella Cold Water Risk Assessment & Disinfection, Domestic Hot Water Storage Systems (Unvented) and Sanitary & Above Ground Drainage.
Our Training courses are delivered remotely online and we worked in collaboration with training provider BPEC in order to ensure their effectiveness. The courses are delivered via Microsoft Teams so delegates can use a PC or laptop device to log on and complete their training. Once the initial training course is complete, delegates will then take an online assessment to obtain a course completion certificate. Even more conveniently for delegates, the courses run from 8am until 10am for up to 4 days so you can still work and plan your jobs around the course times.
Our courses are for experienced plumbers who ideally hold a relevant NVQ Level 2 or have equivalent practical experience of plumbing and the water industry.
We are also continuing our Training Reward Scheme throughout 2024 and will be again giving away 100 training rewards worth £150 each to plumbing and heating companies throughout 2024*
Plumbing and heating companies can claim a £150 reward and use it towards the cost of a certificated course with a recognised training provider such as APHC, BPEC, City & Guilds and all UKAS-approved ACS providers.
The training reward scheme operated each year by APHC (Training) Ltd is an incentive to safeguard the long-term professional development of the industry and ensure training is undertaken. The £150 training reward is available to all plumbing and heating companies in England and Wales regardless of whether they are members of APHC.
Graeme Dryden, Deputy CEO & Technical Services Manager at the Association of Plumbing & Heating Contractors (APHC) commented: “Keeping up-to-date and developing existing skills is important to help ensure you are working compliantly and safely. Our courses can not only help with this, but also help plumbers gain skills to access new markets such as legionella risk assessing”.
