The Level 2 Award in Gas Safety Awareness is designed to give learners who complete the qualification the knowledge and confidence to identify possible signs that a gas appliance or installation is potentially dangerous, and then know what action to take under those circumstances.
This Level 2 Qualification requires the completion of one centre based knowledge assessment that is administered via a 30 question paper based multi-choice examination.
The qualification is made up of one mandatory unit:
H/617/1675 – Gas Safety Awareness in Residential Premises
Learners are not required to hold any qualifications prior to undertaking this qualification.
However, learners are required to have a basic knowledge of numeracy and literacy.
This qualification is for learners aged 16 years and over who are engaged in employment activities which require them to attend the domestic homes of clients or service users.
Learners can progress to a Level 3 Award in Gas Safety Awareness for Supervisors and Managers if this is appropriate to the scope of their job role.
The Level 2 Award in Gas Safety Awareness is not a license to practice.
Those who achieve the qualification will not be recognised by the Gas Industry as being formally qualified in any element relating to gas safety.
