The solar thermal course meets the training entry requirements for the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) and is a QCF Level 3 Award.

Thanks to legally binding targets to cut carbon and the introduction of the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) and Green Deal, solar thermal is a natural development for heating and plumbing market and should be considered by any heating and plumbing installation company or engineer.

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

These three courses can be undertaken at Logic4training.

The solar thermal hot water systems course is intended for experienced domestic heating installers or plumbers who wish to up-skill to include solar heating in their offering.

The course covers active solar thermal hot water systems. The course does not cover all possible variants of this subject and manufacturer’s support and guidance should always be sought when fitting equipment. The following topics are covered:

  • Regulations and standards
  • Principals and components
  • Safe working practices
  • Solar thermal collector types
  • Solar heated storage types (storage cylinders)
  • Solar primary system types
  • Basic solar heating system design and integration
  • External and internal site survey, installation methods and materials
  • Filling and commissioning
  • Solar thermal system servicing and fault finding

The solar hot water systems training is carried out on simulated rigs, on our full size roof with installed panels and in the classroom. We would recommend that solar thermal installers also complete a Working at Heights course.

Logic4training’s Solar Thermal Hot Water Systems course includes a practical and written assessment. The written paper takes the form of a multiple choice question paper and a design scenario. Successful candidates will be issued with a Solar Thermal Hot Water Systems QCF Level 3 Award.
