New government legislation, coming into force this month, means that all HETAS registrants on the Competent Person Scheme (CPS) will be required to have attended a training course - or a refresher course - within the last five years.
CPS's were introduced by the government to allow individuals and enterprises to self-certify that their work complies with Building Regulations, rather than having to submit a building notice or use an approved inspector. In order to be a recognised competent person, they must be registered with a scheme that has been approved by The Department for Communities & Local Government (DCLG).
Adrian Wood, sales support manager at Schiedel, said: "HETAS accreditation is vital to installers and the new government legislations coming into force this June makes technical competence refresher training really important to all engineers and installers."
To help installers, Schiedel has introduced two statutory refresher HETAS training courses: the H003 Dry Installer Refresher Course and the H004 Wet Installer Refresher Course.
