Delegates will not be excluded if they haven’t undergone training with CIBSE, although are expected to have either taken training with another provider or have a sufficient knowledge in order to sit the exam.  

This course is aimed at people working in the heat network sector who want to know more about CP1 and what it means for their work and projects. Delegates are therefore expected to understand the principles of heat network design, construction and operation.
CP1 covers a range of disciplines and therefore the course will be suitable for a range of delegates, including project managers, consultants, engineers, contractors and operators. Particular sections of the course will be more directly relevant to each of these groups but all delegates will benefit from understanding how the objectives and requirements come together to ensure a successful project.
