    its good to be covered, as its one less excuse that insurance co's can use to avoid payment in event of a claim.

    'we would ordinarily pay but this alleged plumber hadn't completed a basic area of training' etc etc

    i'm glad i've got mine.


    jamie...as far as i know its 5 yrs then re-do

    Hi applicator1
    I did the bpec unvented course, I read the folder in a few hours and did the 1 day course and passed.That is probably the easiest part, but in the real world it may prove for you to be a little different outside the classroom.
    Good Luck

    i applied for a job which required unvented certification in compliance with G3 and L1/L2 of the building regs. the unvented card I have, issued by NICEIC says G3 and the water supply regs 1999, but does not mention L1/L2. Does anyone know if i am covered. as far as i knew G3 is the statutory regs, applicable through courts whereas L1/L2 only set out the minimum requirements for installing such systems.

    The impression I got was the "Water Regs Certificate" means didly squat on it's own.

    I interpreted it as NVQ2 qualified, get Water Regs Certificate, third party insurance, contact WRAS or one of the three water companies that run there own schemes like Thames Water to get yourself certified as an Approved Contractor.
    They may ask you to do more tests if they think you are not experienced enough.

    Or have I missed something out.

    I did the BPEC back in May. Yes I read the regs booked beforehand and then a BPEC folder given before the course which is easy to follow. I took my time, last in group to finish but all correct. The few that rushed 'cus they were experts' failed - as it's open book and referenced as said you should be fine. I think we all got the same paper...
