Catergory 2 - Experience Worker Route - Managed Learning Programme
This course is ideal for candidates who hold a nationally recognised qualification such as an NVQ Level 2 or Level 3 Craft in Plumbing or H&V.
You must have ‘on the job’ gas installation and maintenance training that will support your training for the range of assessments to be concluded. This must be evidenced in writing from the employer detailing precisely the type, range and volume of gas work carried out.
Whilst working alongside your Gas Engineer you will be required to attend the training centre for up to 30 weeks whilst also building your porfolio from site. We anticipate completion soon after those 30 weeks due to your experience. This may be longer if you can not complete the on-site portfolio within those weeks.
30 Week Domestic Gas Safety Training
The Gas course is essential training and assessment for candidates looking to gain a Gas Safe registration.
During this period of gas training, we will cover basic heating systems and heating controls, gas appliance functions and basic principles of flues and combustion.
We will also cover:
Regulations and Legislation
Gas safety controls
Gas rates / Heat inputs
including CPA 1
On the course you will undertake written exams and practical assessments. Whilst completing the course you will be provided with a Foundation Portfolio and guidance for completion.
Finally you will undertake assessment to achieve CCN1 (Core Gas Safety) and then any appliances which you are eligible to undertake (this is determined by the evidence in your work based portfolio).
Initial assessment for CCN1 will require 5 days to complete and will cover:
Gas Safety Regulations, British Standards and Manufacturers' Instructions
Emergency Procedures, Labels and Warning Notices
Unsafe Situations, and Related Documentation
Combustion, Gas Rates, Burner/Installation Pressures
Testing for Tightness, Purging and Relighting Appliances
Pipework and Fittings
Operation of Appliance Gas Safety Devices and Controls
Flueing Standards, Installation and Testing.
CCN1 is a prerequisite for the various appliances available:
CENWAT1: Central Heating Boilers & Water Heaters
CKR1: Domestic Cookers
HTR1: Gas Fires & Wall Heaters
CPA1: Combustion Performance Analysis
If candidates fails to achieve the required level of competency in either the practical or theory assessments it will be necessary for them to re-sit the sections which they have failed. If this situation arises an additional cost maybe incurred and will be discussed when this situation occurs.
