CLICK HERE TO BE KEPT INFORMED OF NEXT AVAILABLE DATES

The Managed Learning Programme is designed for people wanting to work in the gas industry but haven’t got the relevant experience or qualifications. Upon completion of the Managed Learning Programme, candidates will be at the right level to complete Gas ACS training and assessment, which is the pre-requisite of becoming a Gas Safe Registered engineer.

Part of the course requires students to complete a portfolio of gas work with a registered gas safe engineer. We strongly recommend finding and starting your work placement before you sign up for the course to ensure you are well prepared to succeed on the course.

Course Code: N9163

Course Description

The course will offer you the theory and practical skills to cover the knowledge and understanding to work safely in the commissioning, servicing and installation of domestic pipe work and appliances. The academy will conduct both theory and practical assessments at regular intervals throughout the course to assess the needs of the individual student and adjust teaching, if required, to suit the student.

Upon completion of the Managed Learning Programme (MLP) as well as the on-site gas work portfolio, successful students will receive a Guild of Gas Foundation Certificate from ERS. ERS is an accredited certification body registered under the ACS scheme. The Guild of Gas certificate will allow students to access the ACS gas training and assessment programme.

Please contact our office to get information on duration and cost of the ACS training and assessment course.
