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 the certification body). For these reasons, we advise delegates to book onto a course in a reasonable and realistic timeframe in accordance with their expiration date.

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 the time of booking. Delivery varies subject to capacity, requirements and demand.
