This course is for...
... anyone aged 19+, living in Wales, in employment and earning less than £29,534 a year
... ACS Category 2 and 3 candidates wanting to become a registered Gas Installer
... those taking their next step into a career within the gas industry
This BPEC Gas Foundation course is ideal if you want to start a career in the gas industry.
The course has been designed for ACS Category 2 and 3 candidates (Category 2 trainees will have a recognised qualification in mechanical services engineering, e.g. plumbing, but no gas training and experience. Category 3 trainees are new to the gas industry and need more intense training).
Once you’ve completed the training, portfolio and successful recommendation, you’ll be issued with a BPEC Gas Foundation certificate which means you can then apply for the relevant ACS assessments.
You’ll need to be able to arrange on-site experience with a registered Gas Installer (in order to gain and record formal experience) and/or be wanting to either change career or progress your existing career within the construction sector.
Course dates and location will be discussed during the application.
