Level 3 Installation and Maintenance of Heat Pump Systems

Level 3 Installation and Maintenance of Heat Pump Systems

Course Title 

Level 3 Award in the Installation and Maintenance of Heat Pump Systems

+

Level 2 Mental Health awareness

Why Have We Integrated A Mental Health Course?

We at Teach A Trade want to play our part in changing statistic like this – Stress, anxiety and depression make up one-fifth of work related illnesses and costs £70-100 billion annually, and construction workers are six times more like to die from suicide than a fall from heights.

Qualification Background

This suite of two new regulated qualifications have been brought up to date in association with the Heat Pump Association, industry and MCS and are designed for learners from a heating background (wet central heating systems) to demonstrate their knowledge in the Installation and Maintenance of *Air Source/*Grounds Source/ *Combined Heat Pumps Systems (non-refrigerant circuits)

NOTE: Whilst the qualification is designed for sealed refrigerant systems and precludes the knowledge and competence requirements to break, make and fill split refrigerant circuits which would be covered by separate Refrigerant Handling Qualifications, the knowledge and understanding criteria are still relevant and this qualification could be undertaken by operatives wishing to install splits systems so long as they are also separately qualified in the handling of refrigerants as described in the EU F-GAS regulation and the Fluorinated Greenhouse Gases Regulations. (see related qualifications below)

Course Pre-requisites

  • N/SVQ Level 2/3 in Plumbing or equivalent earlier certification that provides evidence of competence;

or

  • N/SVQ Level 2/3 in Heating and Ventilating (Domestic Installation) or equivalent earlier certification that provides evidence of competence;

or

  • N/SVQ Level 2/3 in Heating and Ventilating (Industrial and Commercial Installation) or equivalent earlier certification that provides evidence of competence;

or

  • N/SVQ Level 2/3 in Oil-Fired Technical Services or equivalent earlier certification that provides evidence of competence;

or

  • N/SVQ Level 2/3 in Gas Installation and Maintenance or equivalent earlier certification that provides evidence of competence;

or

  • Heating installers with experience installing wet central heating systems, evidenced either by Gas Safe (CENWAT), OFTEC (OFT10-105E or OFT15-108W), MCS (Heat Pump or Solar Thermal Hot Water) or HETAS (H004) registration. The experience in these sectors will normally be 3 years, although where the initial assessment confirms the learner has the necessary skills, knowledge and experience which can be evidenced via RPL assessment this duration may be reduced.

In addition, if not included in the above current certification in relation to:

  • WRAS Water Regulations/Water Byelaws or equivalent

NOTE – If you apply for MCS registration for install only of heat pumps you will be required to demonstrate that you have a contract in place with a qualified design engineer.
