APHC sets new training course dates

The Association of Plumbing and Heating Contractors (APHC) has announced the dates for a new course open to those in the plumbing industry.
Running at the APHC offices in Solihull on August 5th, October 7th and December 2nd, the Installation of Above Ground Sanitary Pipework and Rainwater Systems in Domestic Properties programme gives operatives the opportunity to reaffirm their skills and abilities with regards to designing and implementing such systems.
This course is aimed specifically at practising plumbers and heating engineers who already have a basic working knowledge of above ground sanitary pipework, who need further qualifications to meet the requirements of building regulations.
Graeme Dryden, technical manager at APHC, said that the course has everything professionals need.
"With an increased focus on cross connections of drainage systems, modern building materials and techniques, the course provides a useful update for experienced installers as well as a solid grounding for those who may not have worked on sanitary piping for some time," he stated.
Mr Dryden went on to add that those unable to attend on the dates outlined can contact the APHC and arrange for a bespoke training session at their own premises.
The Installation of Above Ground Sanitary Pipework and Rainwater Systems in Domestic Properties course is not the only offering from the trade body, with many other options open to new and experienced plumbers.
Among the options are the BPEC Water Regulations, the APHC Wet Room Design and Installation in Dwellings and the BPEC Cold Water Risk Assessment and Disinfection training programmes.
The Plumbing and Heating Contractors Alliance, which comprises the APHC and the Scottish and Northern Ireland Plumbing Employers' Federation, recently announced that its new national Legionella Risk Assessment and Disinfection Scheme is beginning to grow an approved membership base and that eight people recently became its first fully-approved members.
Launched earlier this year, the course is designed to allow plumbers to show compliance with the Health and Safety Executive's Approved Code of Practice for Legionnaire's disease: The control of Legionella bacteria in water systems.
