(PRWEB UK) 17 June 2013
SummitSkills is reviewing National Occupational Standards (NOS) for the building services engineering sector, re-examining the standards those in the industry are expected to reach in the workplace, reports HVP on June 13. Their work will influence the skills and knowledge of those who work in the building services engineering sector. The NOS creates the training programmes, job specifications and qualifications among other factors for those in the elecrotechnical, heating and ventilating, air conditioning, refrigeration, and plumbing sectors.
The NOS under review range from air conditioning, domestic heating and refrigeration to plumbing, heating and ventilation and SummitSkills are welcoming input from those working in these industries. The review aims to help these industries develop and understand legislation changes, new and developing technology and working practices. The input from those in the industries under review will help NOS correctly identify the knowledge and skills which will help to further improve the industry.
The Chief Executive of SummitSkills, Keith Marshall, told HVP:
“As our sector changes, we must review the NOS regularly to ensure that our workforce has access to high-quality training which equips employees with the right skills for the future. We can’t do this without the valuable input of those working day-to-day on the job, and those who work alongside them or support them.”
