To successfully enrol in the HWSS Course, you will need to fulfil the following requirements:

  • have experience in the installation of cold and hot water systems
  • hold a suitable level of professional qualification, either:
    • an NVQ (Level 2) in Plumbing & Heating (or higher)
    • a certificate of competency in a conventional fuel recognised by the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities

A basic knowledge of the Water Regulation Approval Scheme is desirable but not required. We do advise those new to this specialism to consider earning their Water Regulations Certificate (if they have not yet done so) before enrolling on the HWSS course.

Learners enrolling in the course should be familiar with the latest version of the Approved Document G, from the Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government. We recommend giving it a read before joining us for your training day.

If you’re unsure whether this course is right for you or not, talk to our team of teachers and engineers. We’ll be happy to offer you all the advice and guidance you may need.
