|Qualification Certificate Expiry:||This qualification, for the purpose of membership to or membership retention to the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS), a competent persons scheme, a professional institute or trade association may require that this qualification is retaken within a 5 year period from the date of certificate issue. Further information regarding membership requirements can be obtained from the relevant organisation.|
|Guided Learning Hours:||(IMASHPS_H21) 20 GLH 30 TQT Credit Value: 3, (IMGSHPS_H21) 20 GLH 30 TQT Credit Value: 3, (IMHPS_H21) 30 GLH 40 TQT Credit Value: 4|
This suite of three new regulated qualifications have been brought up to date in association with the Heat Pump Association, industry and MCS and are designed for learners from a heating background (wet central heating systems) to demonstrate their knowledge in the Installation and Maintenance of *Air Source/*Grounds Source/ *Combined Heat Pumps Systems (non-refrigerant circuits)
NOTE: Whilst the qualification is designed for sealed refrigerant systems and precludes the knowledge and competence requirements to break, make and fill split refrigerant circuits which would be covered by separate Refrigerant Handling Qualifications, the knowledge and understanding criteria are still relevant and this qualification could be undertaken by operatives wishing to install splits systems so long as they are also separately qualified in the handling of refrigerants as described in the EU F-GAS regulation and the Fluorinated Greenhouse Gases Regulations. (see related qualifications below)
*dependent on route taken
LCL-R3035 Core Unit
LCL-R3036. Air Source Unit
LCL-R3037. Ground Source Unit
The learner will be able to undertake the non-refrigerant circuit routine service and maintenance of a ground source heat pump system (non-refrigerant circuits).
In addition, if not included in the above current certification in relation to:
This Qualification would enable registration with MCS for work under the scope of MIS 3005-I (The Heat Pump Standard - Installation). Learners wishing to design installations (MIS3005-D (The Heat Pump Standard - Design)) would need to undertake further training such as theLCL Awards Level 3 Award in Low Temperature Heating and Hot Water Systems in Dwellings.
