Course Description:

This Bpec Solar Hot water course is aimed at plumbers and heating engineers wishing to gain further qualifications and skills in the commercial provision of solar hot water heating systems.  The course is 2 days in duration with a third day available for candidates who do not hold a current unvented hot water certificate (a mandatory prerequiste).

The syllabus covers the selection, design, installation and maintenance of domestic solar hot water systems.  It includes practical sessions on purpose built roof rigs and live demonstration solar equipment.  The class sizes are small with an average attendance of 6-8 candidates to an experienced solar hot water tutor.

The solar hot water certificate from Bpec is a nationally recognised qualification for Government grants.  It was the first solar hot water installers certificate to be approved by Clear skies and is also endorsed by BRE Certification for solar grants.

All new domestic buildings from 2016 will have to have a micro generation technology pre-built into them and solar hot water heating is one of those technologies.

After completing this course you will be eligible to apply to join the Solar trade association and/or the Renewable Energy Association. our Training provider is a proud member of both green energy organisations and we highly recommend both.

Students may also consider the Domestic loft insulation (installers) course as current Government grants are linked with the households energy efficiency which includes insulation provisions.

The Bpec Solar Hot water course is taught at our Renewable training centre. The course modules cover:

  • Introduction to Domestic Solar Hot Water
  • Solar Collectors
  • Hot Water Storage and Installation bases
  • Preparing to install a Solar hot water system
  • Fitting of solar collectors
  • Plumbing layout
  • Control and Power Requirements

Bpec Solar Hot Water Installer course practical overview:

The solar hot water course practical sessions take place on purpose built rigs at a safe ground level.  You will need a head for heights on the real installations but not for this course!

We only train small solar course training groups.  The experienced solar hot water tutor will explain the design, commissioning and fault finding on a selection of solar hot water rigs, including unvented and vented solar systems.

Post course solar hot water support is second to none with a dedicated free helpline for all of our solar students.  We have links through the UK's green energy sector and may be able to provide renewable energy placements for ex-students.

We are a Bpec Certification approved renewable training centre, as such we are manufacturer independent therefore offer impartial advice in green energy matters.  Our renewable energy centres have a wide range of green energy training equipment to use while on the solar hot water courses.
