APHC goes on the road to run regional workshops

Published:  13 February, 2017

The Association of Plumbing and Heating Contractors (APHC) have teamed up with Baxi to host a series of free technical workshops to be held at various locations across England and Wales.

The workshops will be geared towards the interests of plumbing and heating contractors and, due to differences in legislative developments, there will be slightly different agendas for England and Wales.

English Technical Workshops

Topic 1 – Building Regulations Part L “The Future of Heat: Domestic Buildings”

Hear direct from industry experts by attending this free workshop about significant changes due to be implemented later this year with regards to an increase in minimum efficiency of new boilers, so you can be sure that you are continuing to meet the requirements of Part L Building Regulations (England).

Topic 2 – Apprenticeship and Qualification Updates

The industry is at an important time in the development of qualifications and apprenticeships. Employers from previous workshops have provided important views on content and structure. However, we are now looking at the implementation and delivery and again it is vital that we can get your opinions during this workshop.

Welsh Technical Workshops
