The heating & ventilation industry is primarily part of the construction and engineering industries. Consequently, heating & ventilating fitters can be responsible for the installation, maintenance and repair of heating, ventilation and cold & hot water services both inside and outside buildings such as factories, schools, hospitals and other such buildings.

The heating & ventilating fitter’s job will vary and depend upon the type and range of work that the employing company carries out. However, they will all have a broad range of similar technical knowledge and practical skills to enable them to carry out their work safely and correctly.

Some of the things that a heating & ventilating fitter may be expected to do are:

  • Install, maintain and repair water services (e.g. heating pipework, radiators, boilers)
  • Install, maintain and repair ductwork systems (e.g. ducts, extract grilles,)
  • Commission systems to ensure maximum efficiency against design specification
  • Work indoors and outdoors and be prepared to work at height
  • Work with little or no supervision; relying on their own initiative
  • Develop good working relationships with people
  • Read construction and engineering drawings
  • Understand control wiring and circuit diagrams
  • Select replacement parts, materials and equipment
  • Inspect and test systems and equipment as part of planned or reactive maintenance
  • Diagnose and rectify faults on a range of heating & ventilating systems and equipment
  • Write reports

As you can see, the job of the heating & ventilating fitter is varied and interesting and can offer a challenging career. Consequently, the training programme that you will be following as a JTL apprentice has been designed to help you by meeting and delivering training to these standards and expectations.
