This is mandatory training that needs to be renewed every five years to allow you to continue your gas safe registration. This is a packaged assessment for BPEC Gas Foundation completers who are working towards being certificated in any or all of the following: CCN1, WAT1, CEN1, CKR1, or HTR1. This route is for internal Leicester College students who have completed a BPEC gas foundation course at Leicester College.
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
You will be tested on your knowledge and understanding of gas cooking appliances. This assessment will take place in controlled conditions. The College has 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 have completed a BPEC Gas Foundation programme. Evidence of completion should be presented in portfolio with on-site evidence and in-College evidence combined to meet all mandatory requirements.
How you will be assessed
You will be assessed against national recognised standards in a controlled environment. You will be allocated your own assessment bay and all reading material required for your assessment. The reading material will predominantly be British Standards. These documents will support you in enabling you to reference them whilst your assessor, oversees your core gas safety assessment.
Total Fees: £420.00
There may be an additional examination registration fee of approximately £40.00 if applicable.

Course and Career progression
Candidates on completion of their initial assessment should look toward completing further training in appliances (this maybe manufacturer specific). Ariston work with the College and provide one-day training onsite at FPC. The essential gas elements are also offered in College such as ACS elements, combination boiler courses, Part P, water regulations, and unvented training. A suite of such qualifications will usually lead to an employed position and eventually possible self employment.
