Heat Pump Course Outline
This QCF level 3 course gives candidates an entry level qualification to build upon current heating or plumbing trade knowledge in order to extend their work scope to include the installation of Heat Pump Systems. Whilst this course is aimed at practising heating or plumbing operatives, it may also be of benefit to building service engineers, designers, structural engineers, energy solution consultants and architects.
The course will cover the following topics:
- Regulations and Guidance
- Principles of heat pump operation
- Collector types
- Heat distribution
- Pre-installation requirements
- System design guidance
- Insulation materials and methods
- Filling, flushing and testing
- Setting to work and commissioning
- Servicing and fault finding
- Market insight and background
Candidate Entry Requirements
The candidate must be able to demonstrate their competencies as a qualified heating or plumbing operative and hold an NVQ 3 or equivalent in Plumbing and heating and/or experience. Experience of basic electrical practice would also be a desirable. A WRAS Water Regulations (fittings & bylaws 1999) certificate and an Energy Efficiency for Gas & Oil Fired Domestic Heating qualification (or similar) is required; both of these courses can be completed at the training centre before the start of the course should candidates require them.
