This course is designed for those working as plumbers working on hot and cold water systems. The Water Regulations course gives you an insight of what is required when working as a plumber as it provides you all the information that you would require to fulfil the regulations.

This course is for heating and plumbing installers who want to join local authorities such as Water Industry Approved Plumber Scheme (WIAPS), a Competent Person Scheme (CPS) and Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) registration bodies as this is one of the requirements before you could join them.

At Octillion Training Academy, we take pride in making sure you are at ease for the duration of the course and we have structured the course with your needs in mind.

The Water Regulations course has been structured to focus on the following areas:

To promote knowledge of the Water Regulations throughout the UK and to encourage their consistent interpretation and enforcement, for the prevention of waste, undue consumption, misuse, erroneous measurement or contamination of water.

To provide an advisory service for and on behalf of Water Suppliers and for any other person or body seeking guidance on the principles of Water Regulations.

To consult on behalf of the water supply industry in the UK with Government, with professional, trade and other organisations, with fittings and materials manufacturers and others regarding the Water Regulations and related matters.

To develop criteria for testing materials and fittings to assess their compliance with the Regulators’ Specifications for approved products in accordance with the Water Regulations.

To assess the results of the testing of materials and fittings to determine their compliance with the Regulators’ Specifications and to publish up-to-date lists of satisfactory materials and fittings in the Scheme’s Water Fittings and Materials Directory.

To administer for those Water Suppliers who wish it, a scheme to assess, register and publicise Approved Contractors in accordance with the Water Regulations.

To participate in the representation of the UK Water Supply Industry in the development of relevant, practical and appropriate national and international standards for water fittings and plumbing systems.

This is a classroom based course which will provide successful candidates with a nationally recognised qualification. A certificate of competence will be issued upon successful completion of the multiple choice assessment which covers background and legislation, materials and substances in contact with water, requirements for water fittings, water system design, installation commissioning, cross connections, backflow prevention, cold water services, hot water services, WCs and urinals, sanitary appliances and water for outside use.
