HEAT EFFICIENCY (PART L)

As part of the Heating Design module of our ACS Gas & Renewables Training Course, students will gain their Part L certification.

Accredited by LCL, the Heat Efficiency certification is aimed at heating engineers and installers working in domestic properties and is also a pre-requisite to other renewables qualifications

This qualification will allow students to understand and be competent when carrying out the design of heating systems in accordance with Part L of the Building Regulations.

Delivered as part of our full ACS Gas & Renewables Training Course, this certification is also available to existing engineers as an add-on to their existing qualifications.
