Heat Networks Code of Practice Training Course

Certification course (2 days)

This is a two day course aimed at providing an understanding of the technical themes and challenges dealt with in the CoP, and how to apply the CoP to projects. Following the course there is the opportunity to take an exam which allows entry to the Heat Networks Consultant register.

This course is intensive and requires a high level of knowledge. Whilst we do not have formal entry requirements for the Heat Networks Consultant register, in our experience applicants with a minimum of 2 years’ relevant experience are more likely to be successful with the assessment. Please review the course competencies and pre-assessment sample exam questions to determine your suitability. A reading list is also provided.
