Withdrawal of C&G Level 3 Award in Water Supply (Water Fittings) Regulations

21 Jan 2021

City & Guilds has decided to withdraw one of its plumbing qualifications - Level 3 in Water Supply (Water Fittings) Regulations and Water Byelaws in the UK. This will leave some training centres and colleges with a gap in water regulations training for plumbers. LCL Awards’ approved WRAS - Water Regulations training course can plug that gap.

Designed to meet industry standards, LCL Awards’ WRAS - Water Regulations Certificate is for plumbers with at least two year’s working experience, it covers:

  • Interpretation and definitions
  • Materials and substances
  • Requirements, design and installation
  • Backflow and contamination prevention
  • Hot and cold water services
  • Flushing devices
  • Sanitary appliances; both internal and external

An essential qualification

A WRAS certificate covers Water Regulations (1999) and is a necessary requirement for qualified plumbers (minimum Level 2), looking to join their local water authority’s Water Industry Approved Plumbing Scheme or one of the plumbing Competent Persons Schemes (CPS) and/or Microgeneration Certification Schemes (MCS).
