Logic4training’s Hot Water Systems and Safety (HWSS) course replaces the unvented hot water course and covers all hot water systems.

Updated due to the recently revised G3 Building Regulation, the HWSS course features the original content of the old unvented hot water systems training, plus the new requirements under G3 for both vented and unvented systems.

Training and assessment takes place over one day with candidates doing slightly different assessments depending on whether they require initial assessment or re-assessment.

Operatives who hold the pre-existing Unvented Hot Water certificate, which is no longer being issued by Logic Certification, are eligible to do re-assessment.

The HWSS course is recognised by Competent Person Schemes (CPS) approved to offer self-certification under Approved Document G.

The cost of the course includes training, assessment, the certification fee and a course manual.

Candidates must be experienced in the installation of domestic hot and cold vented and unvented water systems and hold one Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) recognised competency in a conventional fuel.

For those in the plumbing field, an NVQ Level 2 or equivalent qualification / experience is required.

The initial assessment is designed for operatives who do not have an up to date Unvented Hot Water Systems certificate.

This qualification has a 5 year expiry. Re-assessment is required every 5 years to keep the qualification valid.

Re-assessment is for candidates whose qualification has expired within the last 12 months.
