    Hey folks.

    I noticed when looking at my level 3 certs it said something along the lines of 'water regulations and unvented qualified' does this mean I can apply for the cards to show I'm qualified for these?

    No idea how it works by the way.

    Cheers.

    So if I have got qualifications stating I'm nvq level 3 it means I can fit unvented cylinders ,? Where do you get the cards then ?

    Should say on your certs unvented hot water (G3)

    Unvented is part of your Gas Safe card just ask them to put it on your registration

    I done the units water regs and unvented on my L3 but how do you go about getting cards for it rather than pulling out your certs to show competence?

    No cards for either there used to be but they stopped doing them

    I thought water regs still did it or do you have to go through someone like WaterSafe?

    My qualifications are from Germany they are equivalent to a minimum to nvq level 3. The gas they didn't accept therefore I had to do the full course which I am doing right now. I have passed today my Theorie exams 3 sheets of 35 questions each. Passed all with 93%, 9o%, 95%.

    I cannot see where it should state that I am G3 certdfied installer. I know in Germany I am and can install everything. How can I get the certificate or the card to install unvented systems ?

    so your not g3 qualified need to take the course and water regs

    How do you know I am not? Where can I check that if I have to do the course or not? There must be a legal body to ask if I am allowed to install

    My certificates got approved by narric therefore they do not write things like that. They just tell you what's equivalent to.
    Is there another way of finding it out? Or do I need to speak to them ?
