OFT10-102 - Servicing and commissioning of vaporising burner fired domestic fixed combustion appliances < 45kW

OFT10-102 - Servicing and commissioning of vaporising burner fired domestic fixed combustion appliances < 45kW

This course is for technicians who wish to service and commission vaporising appliances, such as many traditional range cookers and room-heaters. The course covers the same areas as the OFT10-101 above, but is for vaporising rather than pressure-jet appliances. There are two options for this course - a ‘dry’ course covering appliances (such as cookers) which are not connected to a central heating system, and a ‘wet’ course covering appliances which include boilers.
