Course objectives/key benefits
On completion delegates will be able to demonstrate their safety awareness and competency in the contents of the course listed below in natural gas.
PLEASE NOTE: This course can also be undertaken by anyone wishing to work solely with LPG.
Who is the course aimed at?
Specifically designed for those have previous held ACS qualifications which are no longer current, but anyone with limited previous training and new entrants to gas (category 2) who hold NVQ level 3 in plumbing (or an accepted equivalent qualification).
In order to undertake the course candidates will need to provide evidence of either NVQ Level III qualification in plumbing or equivalent, or evidence of previous ACS assessments and/or CORGI or GAS SAFE registration (which are no longer current).
There may also be an additional need to provide evidence that the person is currently working under supervision within the gas industry (in the form of a letter from their employer).
It may also be necessary to put together a portfolio of evidence of gas work carried out with a current Gas Safety Registered engineer to satisfy the requirements for joining the Gas Safety Register. If the person undertaking the course has previously held CORGI/GAS SAFE registration it will be unlikely that this will be required.
