The ACS Met 1 assessment is a half-day assessment. This assessment is for gas engineers whose gas work includes installing new meters, exchanging old meters for new meters, and permanently removing meters and all the commissioning processes that are included with this. Candidates must hold a current CCN1 core gas safety assessment prior to applying.
This is a full cost course. There is no fee remission available and you cannot apply for an advanced learner loan to pay for your fees.
What You'll Learn
This is not a taught course, but rather an assessment you should prepare for in advance. You will be tested on your knowledge and understanding of gas cooking appliances. This assessment will take place in controlled conditions. The College is a BPEC-accredited assessment centre working to nationally recognised standards. All learning will have taken place whilst you are working in industry or have taken a retraining programme.
You will need to be employed/self employed and demonstrate previous CCN1 certification and element certification which is either currently active or less than 12 months expired.
How you will be assessed
The assessment is completed in the newly constructed ACS gas centre at Freemen’s Park Campus. Candidates are advised to have sufficient experience on this type of equipment prior to taking the assessment. Candidates must hold a current CCN1 and applicants who cannot produce their original certificate must contact the ACS office for advice.
Total Fees: £165.00
There may be an additional examination registration fee of approximately £40.00 if applicable.
If the course is longer than one year the total fees are for the first year only and further fees may apply in future years. All fees are based on a ‘home’ learner status. Please contact us for information on overseas fees.
For more information, please see our course fee disclaimers page.
If you are aged 19 or over there is no government funding available for this course. However you may be eligible to apply for an Advanced Learner Loan for the course fee.
Course and Career progression
Gas safe registration is the normal progression for professionals completing their re-assessment programme. Other elements can also be undertaken to enable a wider range of work to be undertaken by operatives when completing these extra assessments. Liquid petroleum gas is a popular element as it neatly aligns with natural gas and increases the scope of work a engineer can offer.
