WHY EARN UNVENTED HOT WATER (G3) QUALIFICATIONS?
For years, the UK has met hot water demand in various ways. However, while traditional installations continue to work, there are more options in the ever-evolving industry.
Yet, renewable energy technology in the replacement market creates challenges, from the difficulties installing in existing premises and ever-changing technology to understanding and utilising realistic energy-saving options and ensuring all technology is compliant.
This G3 training program has been designed for plumbing and heating engineers to demonstrate understanding and competency in installing, servicing, and maintaining domestic hot water systems.
This Unvented Hot Water (G3) is usually £200, including VAT. However, through government-backed funding, we are now able to offer training free of charge with just a £34.40 certification fee required.
The Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) registration bodies require Hot Water Systems and Safety certification for those looking to be recognised for installing Solar Thermal Hot Water Systems.
