Description

This is an in-depth training programme and takes place over 20 days.

This Experienced trades package course covers the following areas:

  • Gas safety regulations.
  • Unsafe situation procedures
  • Combustion
  • Pipesizing
  • Gas testing
  • Purging
  • Installation pressures
  • Gas rating

  • Combustion performance analysis
  • Hot water systems and safety
  • Energy efficiency
  • ACS refresher training and assessment for Core Domestic Gas Safety (CCN1) and Gas fired boilers and water heaters (CENWAT)

On completion of the Managed learning programme (MLP) course, successful students will receive competence certificates for the different technical elements and an industry recognised Managed Learning Programme training certificate from LCL Awards; necessary to access ACS gas training and assessment.

You will then be ready to start building your on-site work portfolio under the supervision of a registered gas engineer.

If you are not able to work with a registered gas engineer or company then we can help you with this and you will be able to carry out work in real properties supported by a Gas Safe Registered Engineer (this is available at an additional cost)

In addition to the on-site work portfolio you will be required to complete five boiler installations. You can do this with a Gas Safe Registered engineer of your choice or in our Northolt training centre..

Once the on-site portfolio and boiler installations have been completed and signed off you are ready to return to undertake the refresher training and ACS gas assessment for CCN1 and CENWAT

Training is provided in-centre, combined with online training and assessment thorough our Clublogic learner support programme.

FAQs

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At reed.co.uk courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on reed.co.uk, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as ABC Awards and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
