The ACS assessment scheme covers sectors within the downstream gas industry. Currently, City of Wolverhampton College delivers domestic. Depending upon the work area specified, the candidate would normally undertake a 'core' assessment e.g., CCN1. The candidate can then take one or more appliance or specialised assessments e.g., CENWAT, HTR1, CKR1, MET1.

For the initial ACS assessments, candidates must satisfy the entry requirements defined by the Assessment Scheme Rules (Category 1/ Category 2 (new entrant with transferable skills)/new entrant with no transferable skills or experience).

Candidates wishing to take re-assessment must have held the assessment element previously - if this element has expired by more than 12 months of the assessment date, it will be necessary to take the initial assessment.

Any applicants that fully meet the prerequisite requirement to undertake ACS assessments do not need to undertake refresher training. Any applicant may wish to undertake refresher training to better prepare them for the ACS assessment process.

Training is NOT a pre-requisite for assessment although most candidates do elect to undertake some sort of training prior to the assessment.

The gas centre provides the opportunity for candidates to undertake training prior to the assessment and we do recommend this. Training materials are available from several sources if you wish to purchase. We recommend the BPEC shop online.

By completing this course, you will be able to apply for Gas Safe registration which is the official list of gas engineers in the United Kingdom, Isle of Man, Guernsey, and Jersey.

To work legally on gas appliances and installations you must be on the Gas Safe Register. By becoming a Gas Safe registered engineer you show your customers that you are working legally. It also shows you are competent and safe to work with gas.

Assessments normally consist of a combination of practical and theory examinations.

After completing this course you can move onto the Unvented Hot Water or Part L courses.

Our training assessment centre is the perfect place for you to undertake your assessments, whether it is for the first time or for your five yearly re-assessments.

We provide a clean and friendly environment in an assessment centre that is modern and fully equipped for all your assessment needs.
