HEATING CONTROLS WIRING COURSE
NEXT COURSE DATE:
6th April 2021
WHO SHOULD ATTEND THIS COURSE?
The Heating Controls Wiring Course is aimed at existing gas engineers or ACS approved gas operatives including newly qualified ACS engineers, who are looking to enhance their practical skills with further technical support on boiler maintenance, fault finding and repair.
WHAT DO I NEED TO TAKE THIS COURSE?
This course is designed for Gas engineers the requirement is ACS Approved.
HOW LONG IS THE COURSE?
The Heating Controls Wiring Course is a two day course (combined with Boiler Fault finding ). Upon successful completion you will be awarded a West Midlands Developments Certificate of achievement.
Avoid wasting money, knowing how to wire heating controls will enable you to carry out your own installation complete without having to rely on other people. You will also learn how to diagnose faults on the heating controls side meaning you will be able to work on systems installed by others without the guess work.
You will be taught how to wire up all the usual systems such as 'S' Plans, Y Plans and C plans, as well as hybrid systems that use different combinations of wiring. This course will give you the confidence to work effectively and efficiently saving you and customers time and money.
Our technician will train you how to use your multimeter properly to diagnose faults. Understand resistance with sensors, continuity, NTC & PTC circuits, check components on PCB boards. You will be trained on electrical safety and how to check for polarity faults which could affect the flame rectification circuit. If you have opted for a career as a breakdown engineer or just want to brush up on your fault finding skills then this is the course for you. Note if you have your own multimeter then bring it along and we will show you how to use it, if you haven’t, our highly skilled trainer will demonstrate a recommended model.
The areas covered on this course include:
Installation of Y Plans
Installation of S Plans
Installation of C Plans
Wiring logic for heating controls and fault finding the wiring side of heating systems
Fault finding logic sequence
Be able to trace a fault from a particular point in boilers start up sequence
Fully understand the interlocks and how to diagnose the faults using a multimeter
Test down to component level to measure resistance to determine a good bad scenario
