The Legionella and Legionnaires’ Disease Awareness course ensures duty-holders and operators understand their legal responsibilities when it comes to these diseases. It’s a legal requirement that risk assessments be carried out on an annual basis on all water systems in a tenanted property. Just this fact alone is a key reason as to why this water based course is an important one to stay up-to-date with. On completion, participants will understand the health risks created by Legionella bacteria. There are two versions of the course:

One is for the operators that carry out the risk assessment on the water supply system
The second is for supervisors and managers tasked with ensuring the system’s safe management.
Water Regs/ Legionella Ops or Management Courses Costs

This online course is aimed at experienced plumbing operatives who require a nationally recognised qualification in the installation, servicing and maintenance of domestic hot water systems. The Hot Water Systems and Safety certificate is a Logic Certified course and is designed around the Approved Document G (ADG) 2010. At the end of the course you’ll be able to work within safe boundaries when catering to these systems. The Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) requires the operatives to hold a current HWSS certificate.
There are two routes to this certificate: initial assessment for new operatives taking this certificate and reassessment for those who are renewing theirs. The course covers:

The full specification of an unvented water system from conception to design and build
Gaining an understanding of the water regulations and Approved Document G 2010
Gaining an understanding of materials used and backflow devices used throughout the plumbing industry
Assessment is by multiple choice papers, short written answers and the observation of practical tasks. At the end of the course you will be able to self-certify your work to the local authorities using the ADG.
