The training will be carried out in one of the classrooms at our training centre facility in Grimsby, which includes monitors for presentations, whiteboards for diagrams and notes as well as gas appliances and meters connected to a live supply for practical demonstrations.
• How will I be assessed?
The assessment is carried out via theory question papers (a mixture of multiple choice and written papers) and a practical assessment carried out by a qualified assessor. Both written and practical elements of the assessment will pertain to core natural gas safety as well as any appliances undertaken.
• What will I achieve? 
Upon successful completion of the course, ACS qualifications will be attained and are valid for a period of five years, allowing candidates to safely and legally work on gas appliances in domestic properties. Our certification body will automatically notify the Gas Safe register of their ability to register.
