APHC announces comprehensive 2017 training programme

The Association of Plumbing & Heating Contractors (APHC) has recently published its 2017 programme of one-day plumbing and heating training courses.

The training programme includes one-day courses on Water Regulations, Legionella Cold Water Risk Assessment & Disinfection, Sanitary & Above Ground Drainage and Wet Room Design & Installation. The courses are delivered by highly experienced trainers who have considerable knowledge and expertise of the content of each course.

The courses are delivered at APHC’s centrally located offices in the West Midlands and are open to all plumbing and heating businesses in England and Wales. However, if plumbing and heating businesses have a requirement of eight or more employees needing to attend a course, then APHC can deliver its programme of one-day courses off-site at an employer’s premises or at a suitable local location.

Graeme Dryden, APHC’s Technical Services Manager, oversees course development and delivery and commented: “I can’t emphasise enough just how important it is for plumbers and heating engineers to keep up-to-date with new technologies and to develop their existing skills. Not just from a safety and compliance point of view, but additionally from a commercial one to ensure they have the skills to capitalise on growing markets, such as the wet rooms market which is forecast to increase by 34% between 2014 and 2019, making it the fastest growing sector of the UK bathroom market.”

APHC’s sister company APHC Training Ltd, a registered charity, will be offering a new reward scheme in 2017 which will allow a limited number of plumbing and heating companies to claim a significant contribution towards the cost of an APHC one-day course.
