LCL Awards Level 3 Award in the Installation and Maintenance of Air Source Heat Pumps Systems (non-refrigerant circuits)
3 Days £525 ex VAT

Course Background
This qualification has been updated in association with the Heat Pump Association and MCS and has been designed for learners from a heating background to demonstrate their knowledge in the Installation and Maintenance of Air Source Heat Pump systems to achieve a nationally recognised qualification. This is for the purpose of membership retention to the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) upon successful completion of the course.

You can learn more about MCS certification by clicking here.

Please note

For those looking to become MCS registered for the installation only of heat pumps, you will need to hold the WRAS Water Regulations qualification. We offer this course, for further information please click here.

If 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 who must also be MCS registered as a designer of heat pump systems. Quantum Group can produce a contract for you with one of our designers. Please contact our Sales Team to find out more – sales@thequantumgroup.uk.com

For MCS registration for the Installation and Design of Heat Pumps, learners will need to hold the LCL Awards Levels 3 in Low Temperature Heating and Hot Water Systems in Dwellings. Again we offer this course, please click here for further information.

Candidates will need to meet the minimum qualification and experience requirements as outlined in the pre-requisites section on our booking form.
