This is an individual element assessment to enhance a gas engineer’s portfolio of qualifications increasing work opportunities. Initial assessment is designed for practising gas engineers who are employed or self employed who wish to install, service and maintain domestic cookers. There is a half-day assessment that is a combination of theory and practical skills.
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. Leicester 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
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: £175.00
There may be an additional examination registration fee of approximately £40.00 if applicable.
If you are 24 or over and don’t already have a full level 3 qualification (2 A levels or equivalent) there will be no course fees for this course. Simply apply by clicking apply now at the top of the page

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.
