Course Information for Students

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.

The Level 2 Award in Gas Safety Awareness 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. This could be for a variety of reasons including: completion of other trade related work, conducting surveys and routine inspections, provision of home care and tenant support services.

Learners are not required to hold any qualifications prior to undertaking this programme.

However, they are required to have a basic knowledge of numeracy and literacy.

Learners will complete one unit through which they will develop an understanding of key points relating to domestic gas safety, including:

  • basic legislative requirements that apply to gas systems in residential premises
  • fundamental responsibilities of landlords for gas safety in residential premises
  • properties of the types of gas used in residential premises
  • principles of gas combustion
  • dangers associated with Carbon Monoxide poisoning in residential premises
  • safety devices that can help detect Carbon Monoxide
  • basic principles of safe gas appliance operation
  • the Gas Safe Register
  • report gas safety concerns

This course will be delivered on-site.

No special equipment is needed.

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.

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.
