Our advanced boiler fault finding course is for existing gas engineers or ACS approved gas operatives including newly qualified ACS engineers, who are looking to enhance their practical skills with further technical support on boiler maintenance, fault finding and repair.
Avoid wasting the client’s money and looking incompetent because you have misdiagnosed the boiler fault. This course will teach you all the skills you need to gather detailed information, work on a cause-and-effect scenario and use a logical comprehensive sequence to determine the fault.
Our expert trainers will guide you on how to take shortcuts to determine the fault and how to use a combination of tools which you probably don’t possess in your kit to make your life as a diagnostic engineer easier.
In order to enrol on the course, you should be able to understand good readings, bad readings, and how to work safely in compliance with the Health and Safety At Work Act, and Electricity At Work Regulations.
We will look at all components on the bench and talk about them in explicit detail using schematics on the board and analogies combined with a friendly training environment which will ensure even the newest engineer grasps the testing techniques.
We have trained engineers with over 30 years experience, often from leading British gas companies who have put their diagnostic laptops aside and left with more skills than they came with.
Some of the training will encompass testing negative/positive temperature co-efficient thermistors, water pressure switch, diverter valves, air pressure switch, flue flow sensor, fans, pump, capacitors, diodes, relays, resistors, actuators, flow switches, flame rectification, condense and FSDs all with your multimeter.
Our skilled Gas Safe trainers have the latest knowledge and experience to guide you through with ease.
This advanced boiler fault finding course is a solid start to be able to progress onto other fault finding courses on Y-Plan, C-Plan, W-Plan, S-Plan, S-plan plus, U-Plan, room stats, cylinder stats, control wiring, frost stats, pipe stats, programmers and wireless stats. This course is a MUST for engineers working on systems with motorised valves and gives engineers that ‘EUREKA’ moment when that grey cloud of wiring becomes child’s play.
You will be trained in the following:
• Fault finding logic sequence
• Can trace a fault from a particular point in boilers start up sequence
• Fully understand the interlocks and how to diagnose the faults using a multimeter
• Test down to component level to measure resistance to determine a good / bad scenario
• Determine a PCB fault
• Understand a flame rectification fault
• Spark electrode fault • Test a pump with your multimeter
• Diagnose a faulty air pressure switch • Test a high limit stat
• Relays, Capacitator, Resistors and Diodes
• Fan faults
• Diverter valve faults
• Gas valve operational testing including coil testing
• Negative and positive temperature coefficient thermistors
All candidates will be assessed through practical observation in a friendly environment.
