Due to recent changes in the Air Tightness Testing (ATT) industry following BINDT no longer running the Air Tightness Testing registration scheme, our course structure has been amended to comply with the new National Occupational Standards and Minimum Technical Competencies. Our ATT training will now be a 4 day training course.
Pre-course reading is required for students to have an understanding of the broader concepts of Air Tightness Testing Training; we advise students to become familiar with the following prior to attending the training:
The first three days of the course will cover NOS ASTATT 1 to 9 documents, which is required by the MTC for a level 1 tester.
The fourth day is an examination day which will divided into 3 separate sections. All 3 must be successfully completed to pass the examination process:
If any section is not fully completed then the student may re-take the relevant examination at a further time at no additional cost.
Successful completion of the course will enable Level 1 testers to apply to register as a Level 2 testers with a Competent Persons Scheme as per, buildings requiring a Level 2 tester are defined as ‘non-simple’ with an internal volume greater than 4000 cubic meters.
The course will comprise:
The course is over 3 Days consisting of theory and practical elements, with the final day including practical and written examinations to complete the course.
The exam will comprise 3 parts:
The course will include 3 Days of training, a fully comprehensive training manual, lunch and refreshments as well as your 3 follow up sample tests post course.
After attending the training courses and passing all 3 examinations, students are required to carry out 3 unpaid Air Tightness Tests. Full test reports, calculations, sketches/plans will need to be presented for review, IRT will then communicate to the registration body that the student has successfully passed the review process.
An additional optional day is offered prior to the start of the Level 2 course. We are offering a 1 day course for complex measurement which some may find useful as it will be integrated in to the 3 day course and examinations. This is an envelope area/volume calculation module using spreadsheets, and is designed for testers that are not familiar with software calculations, or dealing with more complex construction details. his measurement day will give you knowledge to complete the Level 2 exam measurement sections.
The additional day will be offered at a cost of £250 and can be booked with the Level 2 course. This optional 1 day course is to be booked with full Level 2 course if required and will extend the Level 2 course in to a 4 day course Monday – Thursday.
