Our Domestic Gas Foundation course is designed for candidates wanting to enter the gas industry.
Trainees who lack gas training and experience will need to hold a recognised qualification in the mechanical services engineering sector (e.g. plumbing), or they will have gained a minimum of 2 GCSEs (Grade C) or equivalent , preferably English, Mathematics or relevant/appropriate experience or an entry assessment.
Assessments normally consist of a combination of practical and theory examinations.
The course requires 40 days in a college environment (with the schedule decided by the training provider) plus ‘on the job’ training with candidates providing work-based evidence under the supervision of a Gas Safe registered installer.
Your Gas Foundation Certificate will allow you to undertake the ACS gas assessments.
No expiry date is applied. (But there is an expiry for the ACS gas assessments which is five years).
On completion of the training, portfolio and successful recommendation, candidates are issued with a BPEC Gas Foundation certificate.
The Gas Foundation Candidate Portfolio: This allows candidates to record all the training they undertake as evidence of the necessary knowledge and experience to undertake the ACS assessments.
