Available from September 2022

The EAL Building Services Engineering (Level 3) – Heating and Ventilating Craftsperson qualification will need to be taken as part of an apprenticeship. It allows learners to demonstrate the range of the occupational knowledge, skills and understanding for a Heating and Ventilating Craftsperson.

It is aimed at learners who have either achieved the Level 2 Foundation in Construction and Building Services Engineering qualification, or who will be completing their Foundation learning and assessments while in an apprenticeship. This qualification will enable learners to go on to study other Level 3 Building Services Engineering qualifications relevant to their choice of trade.

It is suitable for:

  • learners aged 16+ currently working in the building services engineering sector
  • learners who have either achieved the Level 2 Foundation in Construction and Building Services Engineering qualification or will be completing their Foundation learning and assessment while in their apprenticeship.
  • learners who have completed the Level 3 Building Services Engineering – Heating and Ventilating Installation and are progressing to become a ‘Heating and Ventilation Craftsperson’.

If taken as part of an apprenticeship, then specific requirements must be met as part of the apprenticeship framework.

There are no formal English and maths entry requirements for these qualifications. But it is expected that learners will have a good basic understanding of English and maths. It is recommended learners develop further formal English and maths skills, such as Essential Skills or GCSE’s to support successful progression with this programme

Learners will develop their knowledge, skills and understanding for the Heating and Ventilating Craftsperson trade, as contained in the National Occupational Standards. 

Learners will also complete two ‘core’ units covering the building services engineering sector and practice in the sector within Wales. 

The qualification will be portable throughout the UK and is aimed to develop learners’ ability to meet the demands of the building services engineering sector in Wales.

The qualification is designed to be completed on a part-time basis within an apprenticeship.

The learner must successfully complete: 

  • two externally-set, externally-marked multiple choice tests
  • a Safety Critical Test, externally-set, internally-marked (practical assessments)
  • one employer set, internally-marked Practical Project in the trade area
  • one externally-marked Professional Discussion.

On completion of the qualification (and the apprenticeship), it will provide the skills and knowledge required for the learner to be capable of working in their chosen trade across the UK.
