Course Overview

This course is for plumbing and heating engineers who want to install Domestic Hot Water Storage Systems, and will demonstrate their competence so they can either join a Competent Persons’ Scheme allowing the self-certification of installations, or to notify the local Building Control department prior to commencing work.

Professional Prospects

Assessments normally consist of a combination of practical and theory examinations. The very comprehensive course starts with intensive training in the four modules, followed by the completion of three assessments including one practical. Candidates must successfully pass all three assessments to gain the BPEC Domestic Hot Water Storage Systems certificate and competency card. Allows the individual/business to register with a competent person scheme allowing the self certifying of unvented hot water storage systems installations. If you choose not to join a Competent Persons scheme you will need to notify the local Building Control.

Certificates are normally valid for 5 years. Candidates are eligible for reassessment within 12 months of expiry. Previous certificates must be presented to the assessment centre as evidence of holding the initial qualification.
