Gas training and Assessments
We will proudly be entering into the Gas Training and Assessments sector which will give Engineers and New Entrants in Northampton and the surrounding City's and Towns a more valued choice and ease of access in to the industry.
We will be launching very soon and will be trading with a super new name to suit what we think will add value and clear independance to EAS Mechanical valued Apprenticeship programmes.
What is ACS and Re-Assessments?
The Accredited Certification Scheme (ACS) is the industry recognised and accepted route for gas operatives to gain the certificate of competence. This will then be needed to become a member of the Gas Safe Register where you will register and obtain a photo identification card showing the areas you are able to work within. Registration with the Gas Safe Register is a legal requirement for anyone carrying out gas work in the United Kingdom, Isle of Man and Guernsey under the Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998.
This scheme is overseen by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) and our awarding body will be announced very soon.
What are the Category's?
Category 1 - is for experienced gas engineers who already hold a relevant qualifications. You maybe renewing an existing ACS certificate or a certificate that has expired in the past 12 months, or seeking other certificates for new area of work. For more information please click here
