CEDA is leading a charge to get catering installation engineers accredited to the catering equipment industry category of the Water Industry Approved Plumber Scheme (WIAPS).
The organisation is encouraging all its members, partners and relevant businesses in the catering equipment industry to get their installation engineers accredited, with affordable courses now scheduled on a regular basis to facilitate this.
Peter Kay, CEDA director of technical support, said: “One thing that can make you stand out as a highly professional catering equipment distributor and which can help you win business, particularly in the public sector, is to be able to say that your installation engineers are accredited under the industry specific category of the Water Industry Approved Plumber Scheme (WIAPS). This means that they can carry out installations and certify that they comply with the water regulations.”
Kay said that CEDA has now organised more than 20 engineers training courses in partnership with WRAS, with two more set to take place in the next few weeks.
The next available course is scheduled for Wednesday 5 March in Cannock and costs £60 plus VAT per person. “Even if companies don’t use their own engineers we are happy for them to send sub contract engineers on the courses we organise,” said Kay.
