Course Information for Students

The BPEC Gas Foundation gas safety training course has been designed to provide a route into the gas industry for individuals who do not currently hold the pre-requisite qualifications necessary to undertake assessments under the Accredited Certification Scheme (ACS) for Individual Gas Fitting Operatives.

You will need to be 19 years old or above and will be required to pass a BPEC aptitude test before being accepted onto the course.  You will also need to secure some real work with a GAS SAFE registered engineer as a recommended minimum of three days per week.

No formal entry qualifications or experience are required but a plumbing background would be beneficial.

This course consists of on-the-job training/experience and off-the-job training in all the skills and knowledge required by a gas engineer. It is essential that practical experience can be obtained from the workplace.

Your time at College will be split 50% on practical work – learning pipework skills, installing, servicing and fault finding on a variety of gas appliances -and 50% on theory, learning about gas systems and appliances.

A portfolio of work is required to be put together, with jobs completed on-site, to cover the full range of assessment criteria.

This course will be delivered on-site.

You need safety boots and overalls. A small gas tool kit is required for working in the workshop and on-site.

There are multiple choice question papers and in-College practical assessments.  You will also need to complete a portfolio of evidence of your on-site work.

Candidates who successfully complete the BPEC Gas Foundation course will then be eligible to undertake the relevant ACS qualifications.

This is not included in the costs
