Logic Certification Biomass course (QCF Mapped)
The course provides background information to enable engineers to carry out feasibility studies, professionally advise the client, consider fuel type and storage options as well as design systems and installations to suit the varying site circumstances.
This course is aimed at qualified heating engineers who wish to install domestic solid wood-based biomass heating systems.
An important element of this course is to understand the requirement to meet National Occupation Standards for competency for installation of domestic solid wood-based biomass heating systems. The Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) biomass standard covers installations with an output up to 45KWth.
This Logic Certification training course can be used towards registration on the range of schemes available, including Competent Persons registration (CPS), Microgeneration Certification (MCS).
