LCL Awards Level 3 Qualification courses available at Grant UK Training Academy

The LCL Awards Level 3 Award in Low Temperature Heating and Hot Water Systems in Dwellings and the LCL Awards Level 3 Award in the Installation and Maintenance of Air Source Heat Pumps Systems (Non-refrigerant Circuits) are both available at Grant UK’s Wiltshire based training centre.

Earlier this year, two new LCL Awards Level 3 qualifications were launched. Both focus on delivering training to heating professionals who are working with low temperature heating systems, principally heat pumps, with one qualification centred upon the design of such systems and the other which focuses on installing and maintaining the units. Both these courses are available at Grant UK’s Training Academy in Devizes.

For companies or installers who are looking to apply to be MCS certified for Heat Pump Design, Installation or both, they will need to hold one or both of these industry qualifications depending on the MCS certification they want to achieve.

The Installation and Maintenance of Air Source Heat Pump Systems (Non-refrigerant Circuits) qualification is a three-day course, including assessment. This course is designed for heating engineers who will be installing, maintaining and servicing air source heat pumps with the qualification meeting the requirements for those applying to be MCS certified for work under the scope of MIS 3005-I. The course explores the key elements of heat pump installation, commissioning and the handover process, as well as inspecting, servicing and maintaining air source heat pump systems.

Those installers who are also seeking registration with MCS for Heat Pump Design, under the scope of MIS 3005-D, will also require the Low Temperature Heating and Hot Water Systems qualification in addition to the Installation and Maintenance of Air Source Heat Pumps Systems (Non-refrigerant Circuits) qualification. This Low Temperature course, which is a two-day course, including assessment, is intended for heating professionals who will be designing low temperature heating systems. It explains the key concepts of such systems, including heat loss calculation and the correct sizing of pipework, emitters, circulating pumps and hot water cylinders, as well as covering the latest industry and regulatory standards.

For those looking to achieve MCS certification for Heat Pump Design only, completing the Low Temperature Heating and How Water Systems qualification will go towards meeting the requirements of MIS3005-D. Applicants are advised to contact their MCS Certification Body for details of what is necessary to meet the remaining MIS3005-D requirements.

“Grant UK is very pleased to be delivering these two LCL Awards qualifications here in Wiltshire,” comments Phil Stanley, Training Manager at Grant UK. “We have been a LCL Approved Centre for many years, delivering a range of LCL qualifications to engineers and heating professionals. These new LCL Awards provide candidates with the choice to complete the qualification which is most relevant to them and their business, whether that be focusing on system design or heat pump installation and maintenance, or both.”
