Course Information for Students

The BPEC Level 3 Award in Gas Safety Awareness for Supervisors and Managers (RQF) gives individuals who manage or supervise gas operatives, or inspect the work undertaken, the fundamental knowledge regarding the legislation, distribution, principles, combustion and meter installation in relation to natural and liquid petroleum gases.

Learners must be 16 years of age or older. There is an expectation that learners have good literacy and numeracy skills to allow them to complete the qualification successfully. Learners are not required to hold any qualifications prior to undertaking this programme.

The qualification requires the learner to complete three units (all of which are mandatory) and these include the assessment of knowledge by means of multiple choice questions and written responses. The topics covered are:

  • Understand Domestic Gas Safety Legislation
  • Understand Domestic Gas Distribution and Combustion
  • Understand the Requirements for Domestic Gas Meters

This course will be delivered on-site.

No special equipment is required.

There will be 21 hours of guided learning and an expectation that approximately 10 hours of self-study will be completed by the learner. The method of assessment will be four centrally-set centre-marked assessments.

The Level 3 Award in Gas Safety Awareness for Supervisors and Managers could lead to career progression for individuals aspiring to manage teams of gas operatives, or inspect the work undertaken, by giving them knowledge and understanding of gas safety.
