Envirovent, the UK designer and manufacturer of ventilation systems, is one of the first manufacturers to offer the NICEIC Certification accredited training and assessment course for installers of ventilation equipment.
The new course will be delivered at EnviroVent’s dedicated training centre in Harrogate and covers ventilation technologies including Central Extract and Heat Recovery. Valid for five years, the two day course provides an overview of the techniques used for installation and covers the key terminology and regulations associated with domestic ventilation systems and the whole process of installing, testing and commissioning.
Installers are assessed against criteria in accordance with the relevant National Occupational Standards (NOS) and approved by SummitSkills, who are the Sector Skills Council for the building services engineering sector. Once they have achieved the qualification, installers can apply to the NICEIC Competent Persons Scheme for Ventilation in order to self-certify their work in England and Wales.
At the end of the two day course, attendees will be assessed in two parts: a theory based examination and a practical based examination to confirm whether installers meet the knowledge and practical skills required.
Envirovent’s technical training manager, Larry Soper, said “We have invested a significant amount in our training centre and we are looking forward to offering this essential training course for ventilation installers. There are major opportunities for installers at the moment as both domestic and commercial users are aware of the importance of good indoor ventilation.”
Paul Collins, technical services manager at NICEIC, said: “We have been working very closely with key industry stakeholders such as EnviroVent, to ensure the training and assessment delivers a competent installer to meet the needs of the ventilation sector.”

To mark Clean Air Day, Mark Bouldin, healthy buildings expert at Johnson Controls explains why the UK needs a new approach to clean air in buildings.
If you had the choice of breathing clean air for 90% of the time or 10% of the time, which would you choose? Well, currently, the emphasis is firmly on the 10%. From governments, campaigners and businesses, there has been a huge push to clean the air we breathe outside. And there’s no denying the importance of that. However, given the average member of the British public spends 22 hours of their day indoors, it seems negligent not to place the same level of attention on indoor air quality (IAQ).
