As part of the 2010 revision to the Building Regulations Approved Document F, Domestic Ventilation became ‘notifiable work’.
This means that just like installing heating and plumbing systems, ventilation provision must be installed by a competent and qualified person. Essentially, a new vocation has been created – the Domestic Ventilation Installer.
To ensure that installers are correctly installing, inspecting, testing and commissioning ventilation products, the UK manufacturer, EnviroVent, is offering this comprehensive course recognised by the HVCA and NICEIC for fixed domestic systems for both existing and new build properties.
Taking place over two days, the course covers both theoretical and practical training. It focuses on the 5 main types of Domestic Ventilation Systems. Conforming to the new Summit Skills syllabus for ventilation through the independent training organisation BPEC, the course covers the following elements:
The course ensures that you can:
Install the most common types of domestic ventilation products safely and efficiently
Inspect and test systems
Commission and be able to provide information on the systems
Candidates should already have a number of years’ experience in plumbing, heating or electrical engineering. Alternatively they hold or are currently undertaking a course in an NVQ Level 3 in plumbing, heating or electrical engineering.
