In a nutshell

Whether you already hold plumbing qualifications or are new to the gas industry, this course will give you the fundamental knowledge you need to become a Gas Installer. Once you’ve gained the BPEC Gas Foundation Certificate, you’ll be able to apply for the relevant ACS assessments.

This course is for...

...ACS Category 2 & 3 candidates wanting to become a registered Gas Installer

...those taking their next step into a career within the gas industry

...applicants who fall into the above categories, aged 19 + and living in Wales, employed, and earning less than £29,534 per year.

Course content

The Domestic Gas Foundation course is ideal if you want to start a career in the gas industry and 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.

Entry Requirements

You’ll need to be able to arrange on-site experience with a registered Gas Installer to gain and record formal experience, and / or be wanting to either change career, or progress your existing career within the construction sector.
