Water Regulations

Water Regulations

This training course will provide delegates with an understanding of water regulations / water byelaws.  This course may also provide delegates with the required CPD to join WaterSafe, as part of their published joining criteria.

Introduction

This course has been developed by BPEC to help plumbers update their knowledge of Water Regulations which are used to control the insulation and use of water supply systems. The course will help plumbing contractors to implement Water Regulations competently, not only with new installation work, but also to ensure that they are able to recognise and rectify contraventions.

Aimed primarily at practicing plumbers, who already have a knowledge of hot and cold water systems, the training course is also of use for water inspectors and anyone who is involved with the installation, design, or specification of water systems or with buildings containing water systems.
