OFTEC 101, 105e & 600A

OFTEC have set specific pre-requisite entry requirements for candidates wishing to enter the training and/or assessment process. This ensures that candidates have the necessary required level of experience/knowledge before being permitted entry to the scheme.

There are several different courses available, depending on the type of heating equipment you intend to work on.

Once you have successfully completed your training and assessment, you will receive a certificate from the certification body. The certificate is proof of your competence and, once you receive it, you can apply for OFTEC registration. OFTEC offers a competent persons registration scheme for heating technicians and encourages those working in the heating industry to become registered.

OFTEC Training and Assessment

OFTEC have set specific pre-requisite entry requirements for candidates wishing to enter the OFTEC training and/or assessment process. This ensures that candidates have the necessary required level of experience/knowledge before being permitted entry to the scheme.

At Colchester Institute we offer OFTEC courses to Category One and Category Two applicants.

Category One

This is a candidate who can present current OFTEC qualifications in the areas that require assessment/re-assessment.

These candidates usually opt for retraining followed by re-assessment but if they feel confident, they are entitled to enter the assessment process without training.

Category Two

Applicants in this category are regarded as holding a nationally recognised qualification in a trade associated with oil work. Candidates must provide relevant qualifications to support entry.

OR;

Have relevant skills and experience gained from working in a related trade such as Plumbing / Heating / Ventilation / Refrigeration / Air-Conditioning / Gas Fitting or Servicing.

Applicants must provide evidence of this related experience to the Assessment Centre.

The evidence must consist of, as a minimum, the following:

  • Name and address of the business(s) providing the related experience.
  • The types of related work undertaken.

This evidence will be examined by the assessment centre and if sufficient, the candidate will be allowed entrance onto the course. This is on the understanding that any Certificates of Achievement awarded may be withdrawn if any information is found to be incorrect, false or incomplete.

Category Three

Applicants in this category are regarded as new to the oil industry, and do not hold any national qualifications in a related field nor have any related work experience.

At Colchester we do not cater for candidates with Category Three status.
