Please note: This course has the following pre-requisite:

  • Water Regulations . Energy Efficiency

If you do not already hold the above qualification, you must enrol on this course in addition to your Air Source Heat Pump course. You can book your Water Regulations, Energy efficiency. 

This way, you will leave us fully qualified and able to install and maintain Air Source Heat Pumps and apply for MCS Certification.

You will also need to provide any Plumbing, Heating/Ventilation, Gas or Oil certificates you currently hold.

Day 1

  • Fundamental working principles of heat pump systems
  • Fundamental requirements of building location/building features for the potential to install heat pump systems
  • Regulatory requirements
  • Typical advantages and disadvantages of heat pump systems
  • Health and safety risks and safe systems of work
  • Requirements of relevant regulations/standards relating to practical installation, testing and commissioning activities for heat pump installation work

Day 2
  • Fundamental principles of heat pump selection and system design
  • Fundamental design principles for ground source ‘closed loop’ heat pump collector circuit design and component sizing
  • Layouts of ‘open loop’ water-filled heat pump collector circuits
  • Fundamental air source heat pump design considerations
  • Preparatory work required for heat pump installations
  • Installation, testing, commissioning and handover requirements
  • Planning and preparation for the installation of heat pumps (non-refrigerant circuits)
  • Requirements for routine service and maintenance
  • Diagnosing and rectifying faults

Day 3
  • Heat loss design calculations for domestic dwellings
  • Calculation of hot water requirements and determination of storage vessel sizing
  • Improving insulation levels to minimise heat loss through building fabric and optimised heat pump choices
  • Calculating energy output from traditional radiators to take into account the lower level of energy generated by heat pumps
  • Theory and Practical and Assessment
