The NICEIC domestic ventilation training and assessment course has been developed by leading industry experts and focuses on providing a technical competency for electricians, contractors, heating engineers and ventilation installers. The course covers everything from passive stack ventilation to commissioning of a mechanical ventilation heat recovery unit. On successful completion you will recieve an NICEIC certificate.
What is covered on the domestic ventilation course?
The course has been designed to improve your knowledge of domestic ventilation systems and have a good understanding of how they work. This is the minimum technical competency requirement for installers looking to apply to join a Competent Person Scheme in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
The domestic ventilation training and assessment course has been designed to provide you with the required skills in the principles of ventilation, design, installation, testing, commissioning, handover, servicing and fault-finding of domestic ventilation systems in accordance with the National Occupational Standards and Minimum Technical Competency documents.
Do I need to have knowledge of ventilation systems already?
It is advised that candidates are competent and have some knowledge of domestic ventilation systems prior to attending. We also suggest experience within the heating, plumbing or electrical sector to complete the assessment at the end of the course.
What does the course involve?
The training course is split over two days, the first day will cover the fundamental principles of ventilation systems and a detailed overview of the different ventilation systems available and then the second day will involve a practical and assessment of a domestic ventilation system. Full details of what is included are shown below:
Fundamental working principles of ventilation systems
Minimum legal requirements
The types of ventilation systems
Passive Stack Ventilation - Passive stack ventilation (PSV) is the most effective natural ventilation strategy as it uses a combination of cross ventilation, buoyancy (warm air rising) and the venturi (wind passing over the terminals causing suction) effect.
Intermittent Extractor Fans
Continuous Mechanical Extract Systems
Continuous Mechanical Extract Systems with Heat Recovery
Why ventilation is important
The varying techniques used for installation of the different systems
The pitfalls associated with poor workmanship and misuse of ventilation systems
Basic system design
Preparation prior to installation
Competent Person Scheme
Commissioning of a mechanical ventilation heat recovery unit
Inspection and testing
Certification and documentation of a mechanical ventilation heat recovery unit
