CCN1 Core Domestic Gas Safety - Plus Specialist Appliances

What is special about this course?

We offer training in our specialist gas safety centre for domestic gas safety courses under the national certification scheme (ACS) accredited by BPEC.

Our courses assess the gas safety competences of candidates by undertaking a review of their understanding of the practical and theoretical aspects of domestic gas safety and domestic gas appliances. On successful completion of a course participants will receive a BPEC certificate and their assessment results will be uploaded by BPEC to the Gas Safety Register. ACS gas qualifications are valid for a period of 5 years.

Entry requirements

This course is for practising plumbing, heating and gas engineers.

For candidates who hold a recognised qualification in the mechanical services engineering sector (e.g. plumbing) but lack gas training and experience the Gas Foundation Course certified by BPEC may be available.
