The 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.
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.
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.
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.
