  • NVQ2 Direct – for chimney sweeps who hold the NVQ2 in chimney sweeping (must be completed within the last 12 months)
  • Scheme Transfer Route – must be an existing HETAS Approved Chimney Sweep with a Recognised Association/Organisation
  • Standard Direct Entrant Route – for chimney sweeps who do not meet any of the above criteria but can demonstrate appropriate experience with a balance of experience, training courses and training on site by an experienced sweep
