Certified Installer scheme from Conex Bänninger
Conex Bänninger has further increased its support for plumbing and heating installers by introducing a Certified Installer scheme.
The move is in response to an increasing demand for those employed on construction sites to provide evidence that they have had the relevant training in the products and technology they are working with.
The Conex Bänninger scheme is for installers using >B< Press copper fittings (12 to 54mm), which are suitable for hot and cold water applications, including drinking water.
To qualify as a Certified Installer, the individual must have completed >B< Press training, either on-site or at the manufacturer’s modern training facility at its headquarters in the West Midlands.
The successful candidate is awarded a personalised Installer Card showing the date of completed training and an expiry date, along with a photo of the card carrier.
The Installer card is valid for five years, after which the tradesperson must attend for a training top-up.
Dan Wild, Business Unit Director for the UK and Ireland, said: “Construction sites across the UK are increasingly requesting that the trades working there have received appropriate training in the products they are installing. This particularly applies to those operating in and around the London area.
“With the flame-free press method continuing to take over from traditional brazing, the demand for competency in this modern technology is growing rapidly.”
