Water Regulations Course (WRAS)

Able Skills Water Regulations Advisory Scheme (WRAS) course is for heating and plumbing installers who need to gain the knowledge of the Water Regulations (1999) before applying to join their local Water Industry Approved Plumber Scheme (WIAPS), competent person scheme (CPS) or the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS). Successful candidates are encouraged to join WIAPS, which will let them carry out work without having to be approved by their local water company. Upon completion of work, the Approved Plumber will issue a certificate for work completion to both the owner/occupier and the water company.

The course is fully recognised by WRAS as meeting their qualification requirements. A WRAS Certificate will be issued by LCL Awards to successful candidates.

This is a classroom-based course which will provide successful candidates with a nationally recognised qualification.
