Air Source Heat Pump Level 3 Qualification

Staffordshire Training Services are offering qualified heating and plumbing engineers the opportunity to move into a high growth area for the future.

This regulated qualification is for learners that wish to demonstrate their knowledge in the Installation and Maintenance of Air Source Heat Pumps Systems (Non-refrigerant Circuits). This qualification could be used by operatives or individuals looking to join the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS).

Britain’s commitment to reduce carbon emissions calls for a huge increase in the number of air source heat pump installations across the UK. Figures in a recent report from the Committee on Climate Change estimate that 19 million heat pumps will need to be installed by 2050 if we’re to meet our Net Zero target. 

To put it another way, current Air Source Heat Pump (ASHP) installations, which number around 30,000 units a year will have to rise to 600,000 a year.

An Air Source Heat Pump transfers heat from the air into buildings. Radiation from the sun heating up the air.  And uses the ambient air temperature and constantly replenishes the heat into a building and replenishes the hot water. The technology used is the same as that used in refrigerators. Just as a fridge extracts heat from the food and transfers it into the kitchen, so does an air source heat pump.

Ground Source Heat Pump Level 3 Qualification
 

Staffordshire Training Services are offering qualified heating and plumbing engineers the opportunity to move into a high growth area for the future.

This regulated qualification is for learners that wish to demonstrate their knowledge in the Installation and Maintenance of Ground Source/Air Source Heat Pumps Systems (Non-refrigerant Circuits). This qualification could be used by operatives or individuals looking to join the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS).

A Ground Source Heat Pump transfers heat from the ground into buildings. Radiation from the sun heats the earth. The earth then stores the heat and maintains, just two metres or so down, a temperature of around 10°C even throughout the winter. A ground source heat pump uses a ground heat exchange loop to tap into this constantly replenished heat store to heat buildings and provide hot water. The technology used is the same as that used in refrigerators. Just as a fridge extracts heat from the food and transfers it into the kitchen, so a ground source heat pump extracts heat from the earth and transfers it into a building.

Duration - 3 Days
Level 3 Combined Heat Pump Qualification
This Qualification incorporates both Air Source and Ground Source Units and is delivered over 4 days. Upon succession, Candidates are able to install both differing systems. 


LCL Awards Level 3 Award in Low Temperature Heating and Hot Water Systems in Dwellings
 

This qualification has been designed with the CIPHE and the Heat Pump Association with the help of their members to meet the need for now and the future that all heating systems be designed with a low temperature aim from the outset to maximize efficiency of the system. The objective of this qualification is for learners to be up-skilled to the concept of low temperature heating systems, it will allow them to demonstrate their knowledge and understand the need and requirements for installing low temperature heating and hot water systems in dwellings.

This course will enable you to:

  • Know the latest industry standards and regulatory framework relating to heating design
  • Know the requirements for undertaking a room by room heat loss for a property
  • Know how to correctly size heat emitters for low temperature heating systems
  • Know how to correctly size pumps and pipework
  • Know how to correctly size a domestic hot water system
  • Know the basic design principles of system configurations
Duration - 2 Days
Level 3 in Energy Efficiency

 This qualification is designed to enable learners to understand, and be competent when carrying out the design of heating systems in accordance with Part L of the Building Regulations.

This course is current and in-line with the Domestic Building Compliance Guide - and now incorporating the Boiler Plus scheme.

This is a qualification designed for operatives working within the Building Engineering Services industry and is a pre-requisite to some other qualifications in the renewables sector.

This qualification is based on the current Approved Document Part L and Domestic Heating Compliance Guide.

Duration - 1 Day
