HETAS REFRESHER COURSES

The UK Government and regulatory bodies have introduced new conditions for competent persons schemes which will came into effect from June 2014. HETAS registrants are now required to have attended a training course or a refresher course within the last five years. HETAS have developed refresher course for both Dry and Wet Installer courses H003 and H004. For those wishing to refresh H004/6, please register for the standard H004/6 course.

Update from April 2016: You can now sit your HETAS Refresher up to six months ahead of the due date, without losing any time from your five year extension.

To give an example:

H003 Dry Installer course pass: 13th January 2012
Refresher due: 13th January 2017
H003 Refresher passed: 8th September 2016
Qualification valid until: 13th January 2022

That's 5 years and 4 months from the assessment

Renewal of qualifications is crucial, and is mandatory for combustion appliance installations under Competent Person Scheme rules. At Thermal Earth we want to give you every opportunity to take your training on dates that are convenient to you. If any of the dates listed online are convenient, please call us on 01269 833100 where we may be able to offer bespoke courses.
