This regulated RQF qualification is for learners that wish to demonstrate their knowledge in the Installation and Maintenance of Air Source Heat Pumps Systems (Non-refrigerant Circuits).

For those looking to become MCS registered for the Installation Only of Heat Pumps they will need to hold the WRAS Water Regulations qualification.

NOTEIf you apply for MCS registration for install only of heat pumps you will be required to demonstrate that you have a contract in place with a qualified design engineer.

For those looking to be MCS registered for the Installation and Design of Heat Pumps they will need to hold the LCL Awards Level 3 Award in Low Temperature Heating and Hot Water Systems Design in Dwellings in addition to WRAS.
