Individual element assessment to enhance gas engineers’ portfolios of qualifications, which will help to increase work opportunities. CONGLP1 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 knowledge and practical skills.
What You'll Learn
You will learn how to changeover gas appliances from natural gas to LPG. The assessment covers: cylinder location; safety requirements; sizing for single controls; LPG supply pressure; operation of and positioning emergency isolation; flow controls and valves; gas emergency actions and procedures; installation of pipe work and fittings; tightness testing; system pressure check; regulators; under pressure and over pressure valves; ventilation requirements.
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: £205.00
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.

Course and Career progression
Extending Gas Safe registration to include LPG is the normal progression for learners 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.
