If you work with unvented hot water systems, you must have unvented hot water training and certification. This is a legal requirement.

It is illegal to work on unvented hot water systems of over 15L without this qualification.

You are also required to notify the local building control department of any unvented hot water system installations.

However, by undertaking this course you will no longer need to contact your local Building Control Officer to approve your work.

On successful completion, you will have the recognised competencies to design, install, service and maintain unvented systems.

This means you can self-certify your work, which is a more cost-effective route as compared to notifying building control bodies.
