This part-time commercial training course provides industry recognised certification for gas operatives to work under the Gas Safe Register. Both initial and reassessments are available. For over 40 years, Glasgow Clyde College has provided training that has improved the skills and knowledge of hundreds of gas operatives. This course is supported by GMI.

There is a maximum capacity for this course and places are allocated on a first come first served basis. Due to student:assessor ratio delegates will be allocated their assessment dates at time of booking. Delivery varies subject to capacity, requirements and demand.  

What will I learn?

  • Gas pipework
  • Gas supply
  • Combustion
  • Appliance gas safety devices and gas controls
  • Chimney standards
  • Ventilation requirements
  • Emergency procedures
  • Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998
  • CPA1 now included within CCN1

REMEMBER: Don’t let your ACS certifications expire as you will not be registered under the Gas Safe Register and carrying out any gas work without being registered is illegal. Also, during busy periods assessment processing can take a number of weeks depending on the volume of pending assessments (both in College and at certification body). For these reasons we advise delegates book onto a course in an reasonable and realistic timeframe in accordance with their expiration date. 

Course fee includes training (where requested), assessments, registration, certification, training pack and course materials. Costings and packages based on individual requirements.
