Gas Flare has been a valued BPEC centre for 9 years, so it was a meeting of old friends when BPEC’s Chief Executive Officer, Neil Collishaw visited Gas Flare’s site in Bristol and toured its training facilities.

As an industry leader specialising in qualifications, assessments, training courses and learning materials, BPEC works closely with a UK-wide network of colleges and private training centres.

“It was great to meet the Gas Flare team again. Over the years we have built an amazing partnership and I never fail to be impressed by their commitment to delivering the highest quality training and their dedication to students and the industry,” said Neil. “It was a pleasure to be shown around such fantastic training facilities and workshops.”

Gas Flare provides training and assessments for the gas, plumbing and heating industry, and truly values its mutually beneficial working relationship with BPEC.

‘It was a pleasure to welcome Neil to Gas Flare, as BPEC has been our certification body since 2012, which has proven to be a successful working partnership,’ said Andy Williams, Centre Manager. ‘The visit was a good opportunity for Neil to see our training facilities and discuss our ongoing relationship.’

Andy continued, ‘We asked Neil to pass on our thanks to the certification team for their great support during the past 9 years. We’re really looking forward to strengthening our relationship with BPEC, as we move into offering Solar and Heat Pump courses.’


Gas Flare Limited training centre was set up over 20 years ago and is an accredited BPEC and Gas Safe registered assessment centre catering for already qualified gas engineers and those looking to gain access to the gas industry. Training and assessment take place in a well-equipped, purpose built facility which provides a realistic environment with the aim of building confidence and developing the professionalism needed to work safely in the gas industry.

BPEC is an industry leading specialised provider of qualifications, assessments, training courses and learning materials. It is a unique organisation led by employers for the benefit of the Plumbing, Heating, Gas and wider Energy Sector and all surplus funds generated by its activities are re-invested by The BPEC Charity.
