During December 2011, APHC announced its intention to push towards a single competency scheme in the Plumbing and Heating Industry. The aims of this single scheme are primarily to eradicate the customer confusion surrounding the large range of schemes, the uncertainty around which work applies to which scheme and in the process provide a competency scheme solution which is more cost effective to the smaller business.
As part of this ongoing work APHC has created a blog where visitors can view the full proposal document and show their support of the plans by voting in the online survey on the single competency scheme.
John Thompson, APHC Chief Executive commented "The blog has been set up to increase installer awareness and gather support for the initiative. With significant installer support we can open further dialogue with the Government and put our recommendations into action".
