From start to finish; from novice to Gas Safe registered Engineer. Upon successful completion of this course, you will be provided with a Bpec Foundation Portfolio and guidance for completion.

You will receive guidance throughout on how the portfolio evidence should be recorded. The range of work will without doubt meet the requirements of the portfolio but with additional experiences being made available to you: Dangerous situations will be found, leaks will happen, and you will be able to remember what you did at that time to resolve them or if they could be resolved.

Darren Chadwick, EnviroVent’s Installations Director explains, “The Competent Persons Scheme is designed to meet the requirements outlined in the Domestic Ventilation Compliance Guide 2010 for the installation, inspection, testing, commissioning and provision of information for fixed domestic ventilation systems into both new and existing residential buildings.

At the end of the course, there is a multiple choice assessment which each individual candidate needs to pass at the end of the course to become a BPEC Certified Ventilation Installer.” This now means that all ventilation provision for new build properties has to be commissioned by a suitably qualified person, leaving thousands of installers without the necessary qualification out in the cold. The comprehensive course focuses on the five core types of Domestic Ventilation Systems and offers trainees the opportunity to expand their knowledge by learning to install the most common types of domestic ventilation products, inspect and test systems and provide information on various ventilation systems. For more information visit our page to book your BPEC training course. Just like installing heating and plumbing systems, domestic ventilation must now be installed by someone who is qualified.

The courses have been designed to provide a route into the gas industry for individuals who do not currently hold the pre-requisite qualifications necessary to qualify to undertake assessments under the Accredited Certification Scheme for Individual Gas Fitting Operatives (ACS). The programme can be completed either one day per week, in weekly blocks, evenings-only, or any combination of these methods. Training centres will be given access to the BPEC website safe login detailing the training syllabus and individual session plans for each part of the training programme. The duration of the training programme is flexible and is dependent upon the candidate gaining sufficient on-the-job and off-the-job experience. A typical off-the-job (classroom-based) training programme will take the average candidate approximately 40 days to complete, including the optional 21 hours for elements or components relevant to central heating boilers, systems, and controls. There is an additional 7 hours, if needed, for portfolio building or discussion. The BPEC Gas Foundation will consist of 280 guided learning hours as well as the completion of the candidate portfolio of work experience and must provide evidence of a range or work experience representative of a minimum of 420 hours (12 weeks). While it is difficult to predict what will be encountered on the job, the work experience must be suitably varied to ensure that the person did not do exactly the same thing day after day. The portfolio should provide evidence of real world work experience gained by the candidate. Successful completion of both the centre-based assessments and portfolio will enable candidates, once certified and in receipt of their certificate, to undertake the assessment of competence (ACS). This forms the basis of ALL gas training to be delivered.

The document has been approved by the SMB and IGEM’s Technical Coordinating Committee and published after consultation with industry, Gas Safe Register and the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). This gas industry document provides criteria and guidance to training providers, trainee gas engineers and employers on the scope, standards and quality of training required to enable a gas engineer to achieve competence. The training provider is required to design and develop training programmes to meet the needs of the trainee, taking account of their level of skill, knowledge and experience of gas work. The objective of the document is to provide the gas industry with an agreed structure for those entering and continuing to work in the industry, along with those providing training, a clear, robust route to achieve well trained and knowledgeable persons able to undertake safe gas work. The training needs to be relevant to the scope of the work to be undertaken. Carbon Monoxide Awareness This Carbon Monoxide (CO) awareness course contains information which will raise the awareness of the dangers associated with carbon monoxide. This course is ideal for delivery to organisations that have responsibility for maintaining gas safety in their properties such as local authorities, hospitals, and landlords. The assessment involves a small number of questions to answer at the end of the awareness training. Stephanie Trotter OBE, President and Director of the charity CO-Gas Safety, was inspired to create the course after the death of a registered gas installer Matthew Nixon aged 22 in 2010. Matthew had died from CO from using a petrol generator indoors to power his tools. He had been in the gas industry from the age of 16. Therefore in the opinion of the charity registered gas installers could also undertake this course.
