Our Bpec accredited Electrics for Plumbers courses is for experienced plumbing and heating installers wanting a basic knowledge of electrical installation skills and understanding of circuitry and fault finding for use in their day to day work.
This three day course aims to help plumbers and heating engineers who work on central heating electrical control systems to work safely and comply with the appropriate standards. It has been designed with plumbing and heating engineers in mind.
While not aiming to turn you into an electrician, this short programme will give you the necessary skills and knowledge to maintain and repair modern gas appliances and thus concentrates on:
- The basics of electricity
- Domestic house wiring
- Central heating control systems
- Fault Finding
- Central heating appliance components
- Safe Isolation
The scope of electrical works is explicitly defined in order to provide clear and unambiguous guidance on the electrical works associated with plumbing. ALL other work is outside the range of competences for plumbing and heating operatives.
While this certificate does not give you the full electrical qualifications it will allow the operative to work on electrical equipment associated with plumbing systems.
Trainees must hold a recognised trade qualification and a working knowledge of central heating systems is essential.
