Domestic ventilation became ‘Notifiable Work’ on 1st October 2010 as part of the 2010 revision to Approved Document F of the Building Regulations. This means ventilation provision in new homes must be commissioned by a suitably qualified person. To ensure installers are qualified to complete domestic ventilation installation, commissioning and hand-over, Domus Ventilation wrote and launched the first industry-recognised accredited training program. The content of the course conforms to the requirements of Summit Skills new syllabus for ventilation and is recognised by the Government as a suitable academic qualification for relevant Competent Person Schemes.
The course is accredited by independent training company BPEC, an industry recognised training and certification provider which already provides ACS, OFTEC, ECS and other renewable certification. The new domestic ventilation course provides significant opportunity for allied trades to take on additional skills and increase their scope of work.
Course Applicable to:
M&E Contractors / Plumbing & Heating Contractors/Engineers Electricians/ Specialist Wholesaler & Merchant Staff Students & Apprentices Building Control.
What the Course covers:
The syllabus covers the majority of existing types of UK domestic ventilation systems and emphasises the most common configurations that most tradespeople are likely to encounter. Due to time constraints, the syllabus does not aim to cover material that should already be known to plumbing, heating and electrical engineers. Repetition of existing knowledge is only likely to occur in areas which are regarded as critical, including legal and safety issues.
What prerequisite knowledge is needed:
The training/assessment course is targeted at candidates with a number of years’ experience in plumbing, heating or electrical engineering and who hold or are studying towards an NVQ Level 3 in plumbing, heating or electrical engineering.
Course duration, content and assessment:
The training and assessment course runs over two days and includes both theoretical training and practical exercises. At the end of the course there is a multiple choice assessment that each individual candidate needs to pass. The assessment is closed book.
