Project Description

Maintenance, Management or Supervision

If you are responsible for the maintenance, management or supervision of water systems, or work on these systems in domestic properties, this certification is a  must. It not only covers risk assessments for legionella and the disinfection of water systems in residential premises, but also underlines the significance of your responsibility in the eyes of the law. With over 8 years of assessing experience in the training care industry, we’re best equipped to train and assess you on complying with landlords and facilities managers to evaluate the risk of legionella (such as in calorifiers, spa baths, taps, and showers) to keep all building occupants safe from the risk of the disease.

As an evolving gas training centre based in Stirling, Scotland, JSS Training Services is passionate about improving the standards across the entire gas industry, focusing on a combination of theory and hands-on tasks through our training and assessment.

Our Legionella Prevention and Water Treatment course covers the requirements of ACoP L8, HSE guidance and British Standards – and as is the case with all of our courses, class sizes are capped to maintain high standards of quality in training and assessment.
