Benefits of WRAS Course

The main benefit of completing the Water Regulations Course is fulfilling the Air Source Heat Pump prerequisite. It also opens the door to the renewables career path.

Water Regulations Requirements & Qualifications

Put simply, you need no formal qualifications to undertake the course unless you are planning on becoming Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) registered. If this IS something you are interested in; candidates should already be experienced in installing domestic cold and hot water systems. Heating engineers should hold a competency in a conventional fuel i.e. gas, oil or solid fuel, recognised by the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG). Plumbers need to hold the equivalent of an NVQ Level 2. Basic knowledge of the WRAS Water Regulations is also desirable but not required for all candidates.

To find out what this means for you, please get in touch with us at 0800 6123177.

WRAS Training Location

This Course is based in our Halifax Training centre located close to the M62 with great access from all over the country.

Our purpose built centre offers state of the art classrooms and workshops where you can put into practice the principles you will learn about. Our facilities have multiple Heat Pump systems plumbed-in and live to help you understand how they work in an actual water system. 

We find our students love our facilities so much they are one of the main reasons they keep coming back for further training.

Response from the owner: Thank you for taking the time to post a review for VIVA Training. It was great to have you on the Boiler Fault finding course and we are thrilled to receive your feedback!
Just recently completed a fault finding course with the ever knowledgeable Roy Fugler.I honestly cannot rate this training centre and Roy highly enough!I completed my ACS training with them over two years ago and they were my number one choice when I decided to expand my knowledge around the inner workings of a boiler and how to diagnose the issues that often arise.I will have to re-sit my ACS again in a few years and there’s only one place I’ll be going. It’s VIVA all the way!
Very good training centre and learned a lot in a short time.Attended a heat pump course and water regs. Very thorough and smooth at the same time.Very Nice experience.
Best course I have attended Unlike others which are showroom based don’t touch this or you left mark there.This was actually hands on course Different makes and models were in workshop both live and dead boilers also lots of sensor switches pumps,G valves etc. Pete was excellent made sure everyone understood what were they doing and what outcome or readings they were looking from each test carried out.pete put faults on live Boilers when we were away for break to simulate real world scenarios which was really good.Excellent would really recommend it.
