H&V Edinburgh & Lothians - The BESA

Heating & Ventilation – Industrial & Commercial

Level 3

Location: Edinburgh & Lothians

Application Deadline: Tuesday, August 15, 2017

Entry Requirements

Passes at National 4 or above in English, Maths, Physics and a Technical subject preferred, or the equivalent in Standard Grade Qualifications. They will also need to undertake the BESA Training assessment.


Not to be confused with a domestic heating engineer, heating and ventilating experts install miles rather than metres of pipework and are specialists in large industrial and commercial boilers.

Work is carried out on building sites, in all weathers, and in occupied and unoccupied premises, such as factories, hospitals, schools, shops and offices. All work has to be carefully planned to ensure it happens at the right time and causes the minimum disruption for the client and to take into account all health and safety requirements – a particularly important aspect of the job.

To become a fully trained, qualified Heating & Ventilating Engineer takes 4 years for SVQ level 3. You will be trained by your employer and at an appropriate college.
