BPEC Low Temperature Hot Water Heating Systems
The BPEC Low Temperature Hot Water Heating Systems is a recommended pre-requisite qualification to allow progression onto the BPEC Level 3 Award in Air Source Heat Pump Systems (Non-refrigerant Circuits) ETS-006, the BPEC Level 3 Award in Ground Source Heat Pump Systems (Non-refrigerant Circuits) ETS-007 and the BPEC Level 3 Award in Heat Pump Systems (Non-refrigerant Circuits) ETS-008.
Although designed as a recommended pre-requisite qualification to allow progression onto the BPEC suite of Heat Pump qualifications, this qualification can also be taken by those experienced operatives wishing to develop their skills in the design of low temperature domestic heating systems.
The holder of this qualification is not recognised as a competent hot water and heating systems (low temperature) installer. However, the holder is recognised as being competent to carry out the design of hot water and heating systems (low temperature).
Trainees will need to have some knowledge of plumbing and the water industry.
Training and Assessment is carried out in centre which usually lasts two days. However, some independent studying prior to attending will be required.
This course is recommended for those operatives wishing to design and install Low Temperature Hot Water Heating Systems that use HEAT PUMPS as the heat source.
This is an evergreen qualification.
The qualification is aimed primarily at practicing plumbers and heating engineers who already have an understanding of the fundamental requirements of central heating systems and who wish to design and install energy efficient low temperature hot water heating systems that may use heat pumps as the heat source.
