About BPEC

The BPEC group of companies specialise in providing operatives working in the building services engineering industry with the skills and expertise necessary to meet the high industry quality standards.

BPEC work closely with a nationwide network of employers, colleges and private training providers to enable them to offer a range of quality training materials, assessments and qualifications.

The BPEC group consists of three separate companies:

BPEC Certification Ltd

Originally established in 1997, BPEC Certification Ltd. operates as both an Awarding Organisation and a Certification Body overseeing the competence assessment of individuals working in the industry.

In 1999 BPEC Certification Ltd. gained accreditation from United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) as a Certification Body for the Nationally Accredited Certification Scheme for Gas Fitting Operatives (ACS) and in 2002, the organisation gained further UKAS accreditation as a Certification Body for the Oil Firing Technical Association for the Petroleum Industry Certification Scheme (OFTEC).

With a specific focus upon providing high levels of quality and customer service, the organisation has quickly gained a reputation as a leading Certification Body; this reputation has been further enhanced by recently achieving OFQUAL recognition as an Awarding Organisation for vocational qualifications listed on the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF) including plumbing, gas, and renewable technologies (including Green-Deal).

(It is the relevant assessment scheme rules/assessment strategies that determine the pre-requisite training/education requirements for the BPEC Certification Ltd. qualifications.  The certification process is impartial and it is not implied that certification would be simpler, easier or less expensive if any particular education/training services are used by the candidate/learner).
