The Association of Plumbing & Heating Contractors (APHC), in collaboration with City & Guilds, has announced that it will host a series of free technical workshops throughout England and Wales during October this year.
The sessions will take place in the morning and offer plumbing and hearing installers the chance to shape their industry and offer their views on a number of key issues.
Among these issues are ‘New Water Supplies, Water Efficiency Calculations and meeting the requirements of Part G of Building Regulations’ and ‘The New Plumbing Apprenticeship.’
An increasing number of developers are asking for information on ‘New Water Supplies, Water Efficiency Calculations and meeting the requirements of Part G of Building Regulations’.
The Water Efficiency Calculator will no longer be used an standard modelling is now available, so attendance at this session will mean that installers can make sure that they are up to date to meet this demand.
Meanwhile, in terms of the ‘New Plumbing Apprenticeship’, APHC held workshops in March this year which have plumbing and heating installers the opportunity to put forward their views on the new Apprenticeship Standard.
This free session will now provide them with the opportunity to tell the APHC what they think about the technical content involved in the learning material, while also providing them with a unique chance to examine the assessment methodologies.
This October, the technical workshops will be held across the following dates and locations:
Dartford, October 13
Solihull, October 19
Wakefield, October 20
Taunton, October 25
Newport, October 26.
Last week, the APHC launched a new Online Learning Centre to support its commitment to help heating and plumbing businesses become more successful and profitable.
The new online facility will offer learning products which are tailored specifically to the needs of the plumbing and heating industry, and provide access to bite size courses that cover the key areas of business development.
