LEVEL 2 HEATING & VENTILATION Building Services Engineering (BSE) Installer Standard APPRENTICESHIP
Known in the industry as the Heating and Ventilating Installer, EAS now run with the BSE Installer Standard which is a two year course with attendance at college for 1 day per week for 35 weeks per year on day release. As with all Standards at the end of the two years you must pass an End Point Assessment (EPA) currently controlled by BESA.
To become an Apprentice you must secure employment in the Industrial / Commercial sector. To commence the Standard it is recommend that you have GCSE grade C in English and Maths with a good knowledge in Science. If you do not have these grades or if you do not have your results yet, then entry is at the discretion of EAS Mechanical and all entrants who do not have the grades need to sit aptitude test designed to see if assist your development.
This qualification covers all the essential knowledge and skills needed for a successful career in commercial Heating and Ventilating Industrial and Commercial Installation. This is delivered at our Northampton Centre, which is located with strong transport links with Birmingham, Leicester, Milton Keynes, Oxford, Peterborough, Coventry, Corby, Wellingborough, Kettering, Rushden and Daventry.
What is the BSE sector?
The Building Services Engineering sector in essence makes buildings work. Installers install components of large-scale industrial and commercial systems such as heating, chilled water, hot water and cold water which are found in industrial and commercial buildings like office blocks, factories, schools and hospitals. These engineering systems operate by moving temperature controlled water around the inside of buildings, providing heating and cooling, and utilise fossil fuels and sustainable energy systems.
On completion of the Level 2 Heating and Ventilation Installer qualification, the learner will be in possession of the practical skills and knowledge to work on a range of specialised industrial and commercial installations. It is ideal for those starting out or wishing to progress their career in heating and ventilation, perhaps choosing to specialise in installing and maintaining industrial or commercial heating and ventilation systems. It also allows for a good progression route on to the Level 3 route.
You will be studying the following units:
Understand how to communicate with others in building services engineering.
Understand how to apply environmental measures in building services engineering.
Understand how to apply scientific principles in the BSE.
Apply safe working practices in building services engineering working environments.
Install and maintain commercial Heating and Ventilating Industrial and Commercial Installation systems.
Understand and carry out site preparation, and pipework. fabrication techniques for commercial Heating and Ventilating Industrial and Commercial Installation systems.
Understand and apply commercial cold water system installation and maintenance techniques.
Understand and apply commercial hot water system installation and maintenance techniques.
Understand and apply commercial central heating system installation and maintenance techniques.
Understand and apply commercial Chilled Cold Water system installation
Understand and carry out safe working practices in building services engineering.
You will also collect evidence from work and produce a portfolio which then is presented at the End Point Assessment.
Functional Skills are skills that will help you become an effective member of staff in any place of work. They help you to become flexible and adaptable and therefore a highly valued member of the team.
