The Association of Plumbing & Heating Contractors (APHC) has launched a new Domestic Hot Water Storage Systems (Unvented) course specifically developed for online delivery using webinar software.

The APHC has been successfully delivering a number of plumbing courses online since June, and from November plumbers will be able to sit APHC’s Domestic Hot Water Storage Systems (Unvented) course remotely via a desktop or laptop computer with either a built-in or externally fitted camera.

The course is run by Graeme Dryden, APHC’s Deputy Chief Executive and Technical Services Manager, who commented: “The current ongoing and fluid situation with COVID-19 has meant that we are launching this new course for online delivery.

“As with the delivery of our other online plumbing courses, we are running this new course over a five-day period in two-hour segments. This maximises the effectiveness of how we deliver the course and has the added advantage for installers of not having to take a whole day off from trading as appointments can be scheduled around the two-hour time slots.”

The course is aimed at practising installers and aims to help plumbers and heating engineers who want to install vented and unvented domestic hot water storage systems to comply with the appropriate Building Regulations and standards. The course can be booked via a digital booking form and the training materials are delivered electronically and can either be printed off at home or viewed on a second computer screen or via a tablet. The end assessment is carried out using Adobe Acrobat Reader, which can be downloaded free of charge from the Adobe website.

Please contact the APHC for course delivery dates or to discuss the course requirements in more detail.
