Gas Training & Assessment or Portfolio Building

This part of your gas safe training is absolutely essential. To work successfully on gas under your own registration or in order to successfully seek employment you need proven experience, and references not just certificates. Let’s be honest. If you came to us for a job just having completed your ACS Certificates its very unlikely we would put you to work let alone employ you without a history and proven auditable record of your experience detailing your experience working on your own on gas. We would probably want to see that companies quality audit history on you too.

We also know that a work placement unless you are going on to work for that company does not normally involve much training on gas, let alone a broad, and varied portfolio of evidence and is unlikely to lead to a successful career in gas.

We provide a real-life on job Gas Safe Training Package that is tied to our Approved Work Experience Program for Gas Safe Engineers that includes both gas training and then field assessment by an approved and qualified field assessor.

Your Field Training includes every area of the domestic gas maintenance business from Servicing and landlords gas safety inspections to appliance commissioning. To meet your gas safety audit requirements you will be trained both in theory and practical and then assessed in real life gas situations including numerous unsafe situations.

The training period is dependant on your own experience or lack of it, your desire to get there and is run part time, one or 2 days a week, or fortnight to suit, until all your approved training elements, practical, and theory, and assessment are complete. This can be anything from 4 to 12 week or longer. Since the whole day is spent only on gas, and is being trained by a qualified and registered Trainer, not just an engineer, the period of training can be much reduced, but only cumulates in successful certification when you have proved your competency to our field assessors with little or no supervision.

This is the most essential part of your gas training, and in-fact Is The key to your gas safe course success. On completion you will be able to apply to one of our approved centres to undertake your ACS Assessments or return to your own centre based training body to undertake your ACS.

  1. Gas Safe Register Training

  2. The Group Competence Scheme (GCS)

    The Group Competence Scheme (GCS) is a robust new alternative to the Accredited Certification Scheme (ACS). It offers an effective model with potential major employer cost reductions.
    The scheme has been endorsed by the Industry Standards Setting Body and is supported by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) and the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).
    The GCS offers employers the opportunity to plan, schedule and deliver the appropriate briefings, training and assessments for all their employees in line with their operational business needs. The scheme incorporates the same “matters of gas safety” criteria as ACS and is certificated by a UKAS accredited Certification Body following an audit of the employers’ GCS management system. This approach aligns employers’ existing responsibilities to ensure the competence of their employees, with the means of demonstration through their own management systems, processes and procedures.
    For the first time, this scheme offers employers real choice in how they achieve the continuous competence of employees. It incorporates the concept of continuous professional development, rather than reliance on a single assessment every five years.
    With employees briefed on technical or legislative changes as and when they are introduced, the need for refresher courses prior to ACS assessment is removed, with consequent major savings in lost opportunity time. Using the GCS approach, it is estimated that, together with improved safety performance, a business with around 300 employees could realise cost savings of £1.5m over a five year period. The benefits are a more robust approach, at a reduced cost and no need for an ACS assessment. While the economies of scale are clear for larger employers, SMEs will also be able to access the GCS by working together in a collaborative local group.
    Gas Safe Registered employers should embrace this scheme, which is the result of extensive dialogue with employers, stakeholders and others. Energy & Utility Skills exists to provide effective skills solutions to our employers. This scheme epitomises our commitment to deliver added value across the footprint.
