Legionella Operators and Management Courses
This Legionella and Legionnaires’ Disease Awareness course aims to help duty-holders and operators to understand more about their legal responsibilities, and the health risks created by Legionella bacteria. A risk assessment can be done, and suitable control measures can be implemented.
It is now a legal requirement that a risk assessment is carried out annually on all water systems in a tenanted property. There are two versions of the course, for the operators that carry out the risk assessment on the water supply system, and for the supervisors and managers tasked with ensuring the system's safe management.
Unvented Hot Water
(pressurised water G3)
This course is aimed at experienced plumbing operatives who require a nationally recognised qualification in the installation, servicing and maintenance of domestic hot water systems. The Hot Water Systems and Safety certificate is a Logic Certified course and is designed around the Approved Document G (ADG) 2010 so that you can work within the safe boundaries when catering for these systems. This course enables you to self-certify your work to the local authorities using the ADG.
The Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) requires the operatives to hold a current HWSS certificate. The course includes the full specification of an unvented water system from conception to design and build. The course also involves showing an understanding of the water regulations and Approved Document G 2010 and their use, materials used, and backflow devices used throughout the plumbing industry.
Assessment methods include multiple choice papers, short written answers and the observation of practical tasks. There are two routes to this certificate: initial assessment for new operatives taking this certificate and re-assessment for those who are renewing theirs.
