This External Supply Pipe Installation Training will enable you to apply to become an Approved Groundworker and gain membership to the Approved Groundworker Sector on one of the following Approved Schemes: WIAPS, APLUS, WaterMark or SNIPEF.
Being a member of one of these schemes allows you to 'self-certify' certain installations. This means you can sign off on external service installations that comply with the Water Supply (Water Fittings) Regulations 1999. This streamlined process eliminates the need for inspections, saving you time and helping you connect faster.
