Since 1st October 2018, those looking to embark on a career in the gas industry have encountered a new pathway, designed to “create a single, recognised route of training for new entrants … who wish to pass their ACS assessment” (IGEM, April 2018). This came in response to concerns that some training programmes were not meeting the depth of knowledge necessary for the job itself.
In response to this, Kiwa Training now provides a Gas Diploma, awarded by Cert-ain, that ensures all candidates meet the new requirements. As an independent training provider, we facilitate recognised training to those who qualify. Entry onto the course is subject to individual assessment in the form of an initial interview designed to ensure pre-requisites are met, in terms of skill level. Through our partnership with Fortis Living we are delighted to be able to provide work placements to candidates without the necessary on-site experience.
Candidates can select a pathway suitable to their intended field, such as working predominantly with boilers, or other domestic appliances. The course itself includes both practical and theory training. For more information click here.
For consistency, upon completion of the Gas Diploma Kiwa offers ACS assessment (under NICEIC) as a bolt on.
