ceda Launch Catering Equipment Installers Water Regulations Training Course

As part of ceda’s role to encourage members and partners to ensure that their engineers are knowledgeable and competent in all aspects of their jobs, we have worked with Water Regs UK to develop a new industry specific training course. When satisfactorily completed, it will not only provide installation and service engineers with a comprehensive knowledge and understanding of the Water Supply (Water Fittings) Regulations 1999 and how they apply to their jobs but also qualifies them and their company to apply to join one of the Water Companies’ Approved Contractors Schemes. They can also be listed on the WaterSafe website (https://www.watersafe.org.uk/) which promotes Approved Contractors.

Membership of an Approved Contractor Scheme not only provides close links to their local Water Company but also enables engineers to self-certify that their work is in accordance with the regulations. This eliminates the need to give notification and seek approval from Water Companies prior to being able to commence work.

The course is one of the essential training modules for the Catering Equipment Installers Industry Training Standard which is the only route for non-gas accredited installation engineers to qualify for a CSCS card.

ceda’s Adam Mason comments, “The development of this new training course is another great initiative for the Industry and significant value to ceda Members. It has been a pleasure to work with Water Regs UK on its development, and now delivery. Everything we do is about the ongoing creation of industry-specific training and education tools and as a part of ceda’s wider focus on Learning, Education and Development, it is fundamental in increasing professionalism, expertise and business opportunities for ceda Members.”

The course involves studying learning material for at least three weeks prior to a one-day course involving a review of the learning material in the morning prior to taking a multiple choice question assessment in the afternoon.  Initially the course will only be delivered live, however, in due course it is planned to deliver it online.

The course is delivered at cost to members and their subcontractors.

Further information of the course including dates, costs and how to book are contained in a detailed leaflet which is available from Peter Kay peterkay@ceda.co.uk or Adam Mason adam@ceda.co.uk.
