• What are the Entry requirements?
There are no explicit entry requirements to enrol on our domestic Pathway to Gas courses, as they are designed for new entrants to the gas industry, however candidates will be expected to commitments to the course in terms of time and finance. In any case, we always invite candidates to the training centre to view our facilities and meet the team, as well as discuss any specific queries about the courses that we provide.
• How will I be trained and assessed?
The classroom element of the course is carried out at our state-of-the-art training centre in Grimsby, featuring a wide range of appliances that will be used as part of practical demonstrations throughout the training programme. In addition, there will be theoretical training ranging from presentations, group discussions and one-to-one work with a trainer and assessor.
The training is tailored towards ensuring that trainees leave the process with the knowledge and competence to work safely on a range of appliances that they will ultimately encounter in real world situations, including but not limited to meters, fires, cookers, boilers and water heaters.
During the time spent in the classroom at the training facility, trainees will be given many opportunities to display their understanding and progress through theory papers and practical tasks on live gas appliances in a controlled environment, which serve as the formal assessment element of this managed learning programme.
• What will I achieve?
Once a trainee has completed the Pathway to Gas course and submitted a satisfactory portfolio, they will be given a Pathway to Gas certificate, which means that they are able to proceed onto their ACS initial assessments, which include CCN1 (Core domestic natural gas qualification), CPA1 (combustion performance analysis – flue gas analyser), CENWAT (central heating boilers and water heaters), CKR1 (Cookers and range cookers), HTR1 (Fires and space heaters) and MET1 (Domestic meter installations)
