City & Guilds launch new intelligent building control systems courses

City & Guilds, City College Plymouth and engineering firm ABB have come together to introduce a series of short courses for plumbers and electricians.

The courses are designed specifically to help learners familiarise themselves with the KNX Standard. KNX Technology is the result of shared knowledge and experience gained over many years with predecessor technologies. KNX can be used for all tasks in home and building control, ranging from heating, ventilation, air conditioning and water control to name a few.

APHC chief executive John Thompson said: “APHC is pleased that City & Guilds has responded to a growing areas of need in the marketplace with this course. There has been a great expansion in the smart homes market in recent years with new products such as TRV’s leading the increase in sales.

“These new courses will help installers understand how these new products will interact together and how they can be used efficiently in different settings.”

City & Guilds portfolio manager Matt Simmons added: “This is an exciting opportunity for City & Guilds to work with one of our centres to deliver a qualification at the cutting-edge of technology. After the initial period working with City College Plymouth, we hope in the longer term to open up this qualification to all plumbers and electricians.”
