We’ve teamed up with Luton Adult Learning to deliver Access to Building Services, a pre-apprenticeship course for 19+ students which provides an excellent grounding in the breadth of building services engineering. On completion of the course candidates will be ready to go on into full employment at a junior level or start an apprenticeship programme.
If you’re aged 19+, living in the Luton area and are currently unemployed, you could benefit from free training, leading onto a career in heating, ventilating, plumbing, air conditioning and refrigeration, electrical and even renewable technology installation.
On successful completion of the course, candidates will have a City & Guilds 2000-01 Level 1 Certificate in Access to Building Services Engineering, employability and work skills and a CSCS card, necessary to work on many building sites. Logic4training, along with Luton Adult Learning, will also try and link you up with a local employer; to provide experience and hopefully a job or apprenticeship placement.

We’re looking for employers in the Luton area to take on apprentices/employees following this course, and/or provide general support to candidates during their training. Contact us for more information.

Despite the fact that the deadline to comply with F Gas was last July, many operatives are still working illegally, which could see those individuals fined if they don’t gain the right qualifications.
As of July 2009 all businesses that install, maintain or service stationary refrigeration, air conditioning and/or heat-pump equipment (SRAC) that contains, or is designed to contain F-gas refrigerants must possess F-Gas certification. Last year this extended to the individual operatives who fit this equipment.
If you or your business doesn’t comply you could be subject to enforcement and prohibition notices, with penalties for less serious offences up to £5,000. Serious offences can end up in crown court where unlimited fines can be applied.
You might think that cutting corners will save money, but this will be a false economy if you get found out. Whether you’re a one man band or a large company employing a number of RAC engineers, everyone who installs, maintains or services equipment containing F-Gas must have received appropriate training.
Logic4training delivers F-Gas training and assessment, click here for more information.
Logic4training is currently looking for employers to take on and/or provide support for would-be apprentices who have completed our new course, Access to Building Services Engineering, City & Guilds (C&G) 2000 – Level 1, which we are delivering in partnership with the Job Centre and Pearson in Practice.
We will be hosting an open day on the 24th May for interested businesses, starting at 12pm.
During the day, guests will be supplied with food and refreshments and given the opportunity to meet with students on the Access to Building Services programme. Following lunch, attendees will hear more about the course and how it is funded, plus an overview of the benefits to taking on a learner who has been through this training – either as an apprentice or employee. Employers will be given the opportunity to meet these candidates again if they so wish.
Access to Building Services Engineering, C&G 2000 is designed for anyone over 19 looking to work in plumbing, electrical, heating and ventilation or refrigeration and air conditioning based roles, such as installers and builders merchants. The course provides a stepping-stone onto the apprenticeship programme, giving trainees a good grounding in their chosen trade, plus general employability advice, including putting a CV together and presentation techniques.
If you would like to attend the open day, or find out more about this programme, please contact Jon Humphreys: firstname.lastname@example.org, 0845 845 7222.
Calling all building services employers in Luton!
Logic4training is now offering pre-apprenticeship programmes for over 19s in the Luton area and need willing employers, in plumbing, heating & ventilating, refrigeration & air conditioning and electrical trades, to take these learners on as employees or apprentices.
The programme is based on the City & Guilds 2000 L1 Certificate in Access to Building Services Engineering and will give learners basic skills and knowledge within the plumbing, electrical, air conditioning and H&V areas, providing a first step into our industry. Basic employability skills are covered as part of the programme and candidates will have reached minimum levels in maths and English.
There are loads of benefits to taking on an apprentice, not least the fact that it gives you the opportunity to shape someone towards a way of working that suits your particular business. As these learners are over 19, they should be a bit more mature and may have more relevant experience than your average school leaver*.
With over one million young people aged between 18-24 unemployed it is vital that the building services sector takes a lead in finding meaningful employment and apprenticeships for some of these individuals.
If you’re interested in providing an apprenticeship or employment for candidates on this course, please get in touch: 0845 457 7222, email@example.com.
The pre-apprenticeship course is being delivered in partnership with Pearson in Practice and Job Centre Plus.
*Due to their age, apprenticeships aren’t fully funded and wages will be payable by the employer.

As the kid’s summer holidays finally arrive, many of you have a welcome quiet couple of months ahead while the whole world and his wife seems to take a vacation. Why not use this opportunity to get up-to-speed with your training? The heating season will be with us again sooner than you know it and for many, that means ACS (Approved Certification Scheme) qualifications need renewing. If you’re a refrigeration and air conditioning engineer, you must make sure you’ve got the correct FGas training under your belt.
Maybe you want to add more to your offering; domestic gas engineers might want to up-skill to the commercial side of things and across the board, renewables are becoming an increasingly popular choice with this market expanding at a rapid rate.
October should see the introduction of the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) for domestic applications. To take advantage of the market opportunities this will create, your company needs to be Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) approved. Our renewable installation courses are recognised by the MCS so go towards accreditation. By taking appropriate training and other necessary steps now, you can make sure that your business is ready for the increase in demand for renewable heat come the end of the year.
Our July special offers will help you get up to speed with relevant training while benefitting from reduced rates at all of our centres and on many of our courses. Current special offers are as follows:
• 20% off all courses* taken at our Luton centre; training must be booked by the 31st August but can be taken at any time.
• 20% off FGas training, from Monday 8th to the 12th August at our Basildon centre.
• 70% off renewables training for installers in the East of England – Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire, Essex (outside the M25), Cambridgeshire, Norfolk and Suffolk.
• £25 off Logic4training’s working at heights course when booked in conjunction with solar thermal or solar PV courses at our Northolt centre.
From today (May 23rd) we are cutting the price of all courses* at our Luton centre by 20%. This fantastic offer is available for training booked from now until 31st July – courses must be booked during this period but can be taken at any time.
Ideal for building services engineering installers looking to keep up-to-date with mandatory qualifications or up-skill to include new services to their offering, training available at Luton includes:
• Gas Approved Certification Scheme (ACS) training and assessment
• Plumbing courses, such as Hot Water Service and Safety (HWSS) and Legionella Prevention
• Training for electricians, including 17th Edition Wiring Regulations and Electrical Testing and Inspection

• Air-conditioning and refrigeration training, designed for engineers looking to meet the F-Gas regulations
• Safety training, such as Working at Heights and Manual Handling
If that wasn’t enough, we are also offering 25% off our new entrants, Approved Prior Learning (APL) gas safety course, which is taking place from the 13th – 24th June; also at our Luton centre.

Logic4training has just got back from the first PHEX of the year, held at a very sunny Wembley Stadium. Unsurprisingly, renewable training courses sparked a great deal of interest, thanks the launch of the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) in March. Our April deal, 15% off all courses booked when you quote PHEX11, also proved popular – this is still available, until the end of the month, so don’t forget to take advantage.
While visitor numbers were slightly down on previous PHEXs’ it was still a good show. One exhibitor bemoaned the amount of students in attendance – we welcome them on the Logic4training stand – the students that visited us at PHEX nine years ago are now our customers. Catching the attentions of these young people is really important; as their careers take-off they’re more likely to come back to the service providers who were helpful to them while they were still studying.
Apart from catching up with what’s new in the plumbing and heating sector, visitors were treated to a free tour of the famous stadium, made all the more enjoyable thanks to the glorious weather.
Logic4training is now looking forward to our next PHEX, at Chelsea’s Stamford Bridge on the 16th and 17th of November.
PHEX: The Plumbing & Heating Exhibition (opens in new window)
Time is running out for refrigeration and air-conditioning companies affected by the F-Gas regulations. By July 4th it will be a legal requirement for those organisations working with fluorinated gases to hold a full stationary equipment company certificate. To achieve this, businesses must prove that refrigeration engineers hold a recognised industry qualification.
Logic4training delivers the City & Guilds 2079-11 course in F-Gas and Ozone Depleting Substances, necessary for meeting the regulation. Training takes place over three or five days, depending on the operatives experience and knowledge.
After July 4th, any company carrying out stationary refrigeration, air conditioning or heat pump equipment work, without the appropriate certificate (either interim or full), will be committing an offence under the Fluorinated Greenhouse Gases Regulations 2009.
