Smart Gas Training and Assessment“A key benefit of working with BPEC is the ongoing support, advice and guidance they provide in terms of getting the apprentices ready for EPA. They offer non-mandatory products that fit seamlessly into our gas engineering apprenticeship standard programme. The BPEC roadmap for EPAs is easy to follow for providers, apprentices and employers.”

Fife College Logo“ Fife College moved to BPEC for our ACS Gas delivery in 2017. BPEC personnel supported the college throughout this transition and have continued to provide the same level of support, advice and guidance which has been invaluable in maintaining our service delivery.

Whilst we revamped our portfolio, BPEC were helpful in offering products and advice which complimented our vision. It is very important to us as an organisation that we are able to speak directly to the person we require and relationships have been built as a result of extremely supportive visits from their external verifiers. “

“I just wanted to say how impressed I am with the service provided by the Certification Team at BPEC. Both Hannah and Danielle provide excellent customer service. They are always very professional and supportive in assisting me to sort out any problems I may have. I always tend to call the same number so I mostly deal with Hannah. Any other members of the team who I have had limited contact with have also provided me with the same level of service.”

Ian Hall, Tameside College

TamesideCollege“On behalf of the College and the Plumbing Department, I would like to thank BPEC for the exemplary service and customer care that we have received.

The resources are first class, with the unit/assignment paperwork being of the highest quality and clearly shows that the consultations with centres has been used to create straight forward and concise documents that add a quality feel to the delivery and recording of information, both in-centre and on-site.

Having dealt with BPEC over a number of years for various Building Services courses and having received exemplary support throughout, I have no doubts whatsoever backing the BPEC Level 2 Plumbing Foundation. The current Level 2 Diploma in Plumbing and Heating for Work Based Learners is excellent, with a fantastic support mechanism in place to support the centres with sound resources available to accompany the course content.

BPEC have made the whole experience of delivering Building Services qualifications simple again. Such a refreshing attitude towards learning is very welcome and much appreciated.”
