APHC announces 2020 training programme


The Association of Plumbing & Heating Contractors has published its 2020 programme of one-day plumbing courses which include Water Regulations, Legionella Cold Water Risk Assessment & Disinfection, and Sanitary & Above Ground Drainage.

The courses are for experienced plumbers who ideally hold a relevant NVQ Level 2 or have equivalent practical experience of plumbing and the water industry.

APHC CEO John Thompson said: “Keeping up-to-date and developing existing skills is important to help ensure you are working compliantly and safely. Our one-day courses help with this plus they can provide added advantages. For example, APHC members who successfully complete our Water Regulations course and hold a full plumbing qualification will meet the entry requirements to join the WaterSafe Installer Scheme for free.”

WaterSafe is a national register of approved plumbers and is used by water companies, local authorities and large public organisations to source qualified and experienced plumbers.

The courses are delivered at APHC’s centrally located offices in the West Midlands and if there is a requirement for a group of employees, then APHC said it may be able to deliver their courses off-site at a suitable local location.
