CCTS Approved Prior Learning (APL) introductory OFTEC Oil Fired Managed learning programme is aimed at new entrants to the oil fired heating industry and is based on the OFT50 Syllabus. The programme is accepted as a suitable pre-requisite (see R576 Update November 2018 Category 3 ) for those wishing to move on to complete the main OFT101 training and assessments: The course involves practical Real Work Evidence (RWE) and theory. Learners will be working on a wide range of fully operational oil fired boiler appliances under the guidance of an OFTEC approved Instructor.
