Company Registration No: C6907
Certificate Expires: 13th March 2016


Purdy Contracts is an accredited member of The Oil Firing Technical Association (OFTEC) which was launched in April 1991 to construct a framework within which oil firing in the United Kingdom and Republic Of Ireland could operate with a greater degree of technical expertise and efficiency. One of its first priorities was to set up a system of training and registration for Technicians engaged in commissioning, servicing, installation with oil firing equipment.

OFTEC offer a wide range of courses for oil firing technicians. OFTEC training and registration are recognised as professional standards throughout the industry.

OFTEC Assessments are undertaken in line with the requirements of certification bodies who are accredited by UKAS and are undertaken at assessment centres approved by accredited Certification Bodies. The Certification Bodies are accredited to the requirements of BS EN ISO/IEC 17024: 2003 via UKAS (United Kingdom Accreditation Service) or another signatory to the unilateral agreement.

The assessments involve both practical and theory tests administered by an assessor completely separately from any training activity. When the assessment has been satisfactorily completed, a certificate of competence is issued by the certification body with which OFTEC registration can be applied for.
