Work Placement (Portfolio Completion) - Work based Competence and Gas Portfolios
Following completion of this domestic gas programme, you will be deemed competent to undertake supervised gas work. The next step towards Gas Safe registration will be to demonstrate your competence in the workplace and you do this by working alongside a Gas Safe Registered Engineer who acts as your on-site recorder/verifier, helping you to build a portfolio of evidence and prove your competence and safety working with Gas.
ACS (Approved Certification Scheme) - Core Domestic Gas Safety including CENWAT (Boilers/Water Heaters)
Following successful completion of the portfolio, you will return to Kiwa Energy to undertake:
Core Domestic Gas Safety (CCN1) and
Central Heating Boilers / Water Heaters (CENWAT)
ACS will need to be completed before you are eligible for Gas Safe registration, and this is a requirement for all operatives involved in the installation, maintenance and servicing of domestic gas appliances and pipe-work installations.
The purpose of this Assessment is to provide operatives with the knowledge and skills relating to safety regulations, procedures, and British Standards, which must be applied when working on Gas Installations.
Initial assessment for CCN1/CENWAT will require 5 days 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
