Building Services Engineering Training Course


JTL offer two apprenticeship standards for Building Services Engineering – one at L2 and one at L3. A L2 qualifier will achieve a qualification which enables them to be an Installer, the apprenticeship will last for maximum of 24 months.

A L3 qualifier will achieve a qualification which enables them to be a Craftsperson, the apprenticeship will last for maximum of 48 months.

Developed by the industry under the government’s ‘trailblazer’ initiative to become what is known as ‘standards-based apprenticeship’, this Level 2 apprenticeship contains:

  • A technical knowledge component
  • A competent performance component
  • Level 2 English and Maths (for those who haven’t already achieved them)
  • Level 1 ICT (for those who haven’t already achieved it)
  • Assessed behaviours
  • End Point Assessment (EPA)

The competence and knowledge elements of the apprenticeship are combined in a qualification called the ‘Level 2 Heating and Ventilating Installer Qualification (Industrial and Commercial)’ that must be completed successfully (known as passing through the ‘gateway’) before being able to access the End Point Assessment. This structure is reflected in the following table:

Knowledge

What is required

Working Safely

Understand relevant safety legislation and safe working practices applying to themselves and others in building services engineering working environments.

Working Sustainably

Understand scientific principles underpinning building services engineering industrial and commercial systems including measurement, force and pressure, heat and power, materials and electricity.

 

Understand environmental protection measures within building services engineering for effective use of material resources, minimising wastage, the legislation surrounding the effective use of energy, gas and water resources.

Planning and Preparing

Understand how to utilise resources effectively within building services engineering including the roles and responsibilities of relevant people, how to oversee work; how to produce risk assessments and method statements and how to plan work programmes for self and small teams installing industrial and commercial systems.

 

Understand the preparation requirements for work areas in new and existing building services engineering sites.

Installing Pipework

Understand pipework fabrication and jointing techniques for industrial and commercial systems, including prefabricated and/or modularised components and distribution systems.

 

Understand the preparation, procedures, process, standards and codes of practice required to undertake welding of industrial and commercial systems pipework.

Installing Systems

Understand the design principles, layout, and operating principles, installation, testing, pre- commissioning, commissioning and decommissioning techniques for new and existing industrial and commercial cold-water systems, hot water systems, heating systems, chilled water systems, compressed air systems and steam systems.

 

Understand the principles and requirements of industrial and commercial gas, oil and solid fuel systems and mechanical sustainable energy systems

 

Skills

What is required

Working Safely

Apply relevant safety legislation, codes of practice and safe working practices to self and others in building services engineering working environments.

Planning, Preparing and Working Sustainably

Plan, organise and undertake the installation of industrial and commercial systems in ways which use resources effectively to complete work, with consideration for cost, quality, safety, security and environmental impact, within relevant legislative requirements, codes of practice and industry recognised practices.

 

Prepare work areas in new and existing sites to undertake building services engineering industrial and commercial systems installation.

Installing Pipework

Apply pipework fabrication and jointing techniques for industrial and commercial systems, including prefabricated and/or modularised components and distribution systems and natural gas distribution pipework.

 Installing Systems

Apply installation, testing, pre-commissioning, commissioning and ecommissioning techniques for industrial and commercial; cold water systems; hot water systems, heating systems, chilled water systems.

 

Behaviours

What is required

Communicating Effectively

Use oral, written and electronic methods to communicate information with work colleagues, other tradespeople, clients representatives, supervisors, and other members of the building services engineering and wider construction team.

Working Effectively and Efficiently

Work reliably and effectively under close, but not constant supervision to the appropriate industry recognised practices and be aware of the needs and concerns of others, especially where related to diversity and equality.

 

Solve problems within their own scope of responsibility, by applying technical and behavioural skills and knowledge to define the problem, identify, evaluate and select alternatives and implement solutions.

Taking Responsibility

Accept responsibility for their own work.

Working with Others

Work effectively with colleagues, other trades, clients, suppliers and the public.

Continuing Personal Development

Maintain and enhance competence in own area.

Working Ethically

Exercise responsibilities in an ethical manner.


The End Point Assessment is made up of a knowledge test and an installers skills test.

The JTL BSE Craftsperson apprenticeship is a Level 3 Apprenticeship lasting approximately three years.

Developed by the industry under the government’s ‘trailblazer’ initiative to become what is known as ‘standards-based apprenticeship’, this Level 3 apprenticeship contains:

  • A technical knowledge component
  • A competent performance component
  • Level 2 English and Maths (for those who haven’t already achieved them)
  • Level 1 ICT (for those who haven’t already achieved it)
  • Assessed behaviours
  • End Point Assessment (EPA)

The competence and knowledge elements of the apprenticeship are combined in a qualification called the ‘Level 3 Heating and Ventilating Craftsperson Qualification (Industrial and Commercial)’ that must be completed successfully (known as passing through the ‘gateway’) before being able to access the End Point Assessment.
