NOCN enters into partnership with BPEC

NOCN has joined forces with BPEC the plumbing, heating and energy Awarding Organisation to offer the widest range of construction skills in the UK.

NOCN, the leading national Awarding and Assessment Organisation, has joined forces with BPEC – the industry leading provider of plumbing, heating and energy sector qualifications, assessment and learning resources. This partnership will see NOCN offering BPEC qualifications to its network of authorised training Centres alongside its own extensive range of regulated qualifications.

NOCN is the second largest Awarding Organisation in the Construction sector with its construction brand Cskills Awards. It offers a range of traditional, heritage and modern skills from Entry Level through to Level 7 in all major construction skills. The addition of BPEC plumbing and heating qualifications now means NOCN offers the widest range of qualifications and resources, covering construction, building, decorating, plumbing and heating.

The new BPEC qualifications available through NOCN are:

  • Level 1 Diploma in Plumbing Foundation
  • Level 2 Diploma in Plumbing Foundation
  • Level 3 Diploma in Plumbing Foundation
  • Level 2 Diploma (NVQ) in Domestic Plumbing and Heating
  • Level 3 Diploma (NVQ) in Domestic Plumbing and Heating (Environmental Technology)
  • Level 3 Diploma (NVQ) in Domestic Plumbing and Heating (Gas Fired Water and Central Heating Appliances)
  • Level 2 Diploma (NVQ) in Domestic Heating Systems
  • Level 3 Diploma (NVQ) in Domestic Heating (Environmental Technology)

NOCN Group Managing Director Graham Hasting-Evans said:

“I am delighted that BPEC and NOCN will be working together for the greater benefit of construction. Now our customers will be able to access a greater range of skills with the addition of BPEC plumbing and heating qualifications, which is a good outcome for any organisation working in the wider construction sector. If any of our Centres want to know more, they should speak to their local NOCN account manager who will assist them with their enquiry.”

Paul Johnson of BPEC Said

“BPEC and NOCN share a common vision which places the customer at the heart of everything we do by focussing on quality learning products, professionalism, honesty and integrity. We are both not-for-profit organisations, run for the benefit of our customers, where any surplus is reinvested. This is important because it means we do not chase shareholder value to the detriment of quality. This is an open and honest partnership that we hope gives our customers in plumbing and heating new opportunities to strengthen their businesses through better skilled workers.”

This extended offer will be available to NOCN and BPEC Centres from 1 September 2018.
