Logic4training’s QCF Level 3 Award in the Installation and Maintenance of Heat Pump Systems course has been designed for experienced heating installers who wish to fit heat pumps in domestic and small commercial properties. Domestic heat pump training covers both ground to water and air to water technologies. The heat pump course meets the training entry requirements for the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS).

Thanks to legally binding targets to cut carbon and the introduction of the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) and Green Deal, heat pumps are a natural development for the heating market and should be considered by any heating installation company or engineer; whether they work with gas, LPG, solid fuel, oil or bio-mass. Visit our renewable energy blog posts for regular updates on what is happening in the green energy sector.

The cost of the course includes training, assessment, the certification fee and a course manual.

We also offer an air source heat pump course at a lower price (days 1-3 of the normal course) Call 0345 845 7222 to find out more.

In order to attend the course, operatives must hold one of the following:

  • A Level 2 or Level 3 NVQ or SVQ in plumbing / heating & ventitlation / gas / oil – Installation and Maintenace qualification
  • A valid Core Gas Safety (CCN1) certificate
  • An OFTEC Oil certificate
  • A valid HETAS certificate

Operatives must also hold all of the following qualifications (if they are not held as part of an NVQ):

The Heat Pump course is intended for experienced domestic heating installers who wish to up-skill to include ground source and/or air source heat pumps in their offering.

The course will enable operatives to specify, survey, design and install domestic or small commercial heat pump systems, enlisting manufacturers support where required. Systems up to 24kW for ground source and 16kW for air source heat pumps are covered, plus the following areas:

  • Background to market
  • Heat pump regulations and guidance
  • Principles of ground and air source heat pump operation
  • Heat pump collector types
  • Heat distribution
  • Pre-installation requirements
  • Installation materials and methods
  • Filling, flushing and testing
  • Setting to work, commissioning
  • Heat pump servicing and fault finding

Logic4training’s Heat Pump course includes a practical and written assessment. The written assessment takes the form of a multiple choice question paper and a design scenario. Successful candidates will be issued with a QCF Level 3 Award in the Installation & Maintenance of Heat Pump Systems.

During the design of any heat pump installation, accurate calculation of the heat load requirement is imperative to ensure optimum and efficient operation of the system. Calculating building load and heating system design is not covered in great depth in this course. Operatives without this knowledge should employ the services of a suitably qualified person and seek manufacturer’s guidance.

The course does not cover the filling, evacuation or breaking of the refrigerant circuits, this should only be carried out by a qualified refrigeration engineer. This is covered in the City & Guilds 2079 Fgas course
