This new training has been produced to cover the installation of standard water connections and the laying of associated apparatus from the property boundary to the first internal water fitting after the meter.
Both the training and booklet are specifically for designers, installers and site managers who are an integral part of ensuring there are no issues before, during and after the water connection is made.
Trainees will need to have some knowledge of the water / construction industry.
Assessment takes the form of a small theory examination of 20 questions based on the content of the presentation.
Service Pipe and Meter Housing Installation certificates have a 5 year expiry date.
The course is for anyone requiring an understanding of choosing the right installation, the service pipe installation requirements, common reasons for delays and the different types of metering options.
All training materials have been agreed by HBF and UK Water which include the Service Pipe and Meter Housing Installation booklet and power point. There are no practical elements – all training is theoretical.
Successful candidates will be able to use their certificate towards meeting the requirements of the Water / Utilities companies.
