ACS LPG Gas Changeover from Domestic to Commercial installations (Changeover)


LATEST RESULTS – Another successful course which coincided with our Logic Certification audit – All delegates passed – Well Done

COURSE AIM AND OBJECTIVES:

Following the need for general increase in gas installation and servicing work in Cyprus, there is a developing need for the training of new gas operatives. In order for these trainees to comply with European and UK legislation, they will need to achieve ACS qualifications in all elements of LPG Gas that they will be maintaining and working on so as to enable them to work safely on gas systems.

It is also a company responsibility to train new-starters into the gas industry on safety, regulations, gases and combustion, domestic and commercial gas appliances. Make them more aware of unsafe situations so they can avoid accidents and ensure that if they are faced with a dangerous situation they are able to react immediately and avoid a major disaster.

At the end of the course the successful delegates will receive an ACS accreditation certificate and card which will enable them to work anywhere in Europe.

WHO WILL BENEFIT:

Companies who need to expand their engineering workforce to meet the demands of the industry.

The gas engineers who will need to be recruited into the industry who will benefit from training and achieve qualifications. Which will lead to skilled employment.

The clients who will receive a higher and safer standard of workmanship.

The general public because gas safety in Cyprus will improve now those European laws will need to be implemented.

Gas Engineers who already have some knowledge of domestic gas appliances and want to now move over to the Commercial and Industrial gas installations.

TRAINING METHODS & EQUIPMENT USED:

1. Training will involve classroom and practical workshop activities. This will require gas appliances installed and operational within the training centre. The delegates should bring with them all appropriate hand tools.

2. Lectures, LCD projector, demonstration, power-point presentation, training handouts and practical exercise on the various gas installations.

COURSE PRESENTER(s): Mr Garath Edwards, Mr Michael Orves and external examiner Mr Chris Cooke

ASSESSMENT/CERTIFICATION:

Successful candidates will be awarded certificates from Combined Heating Services Ltd under the Accredited Certification Scheme (ACS) for the various elements industrial and commercial elements they will be tested on. Because of the complexity of this course this certificate will be valid for five years.

Also each delegate will receive a certificate of training upon successful completion of the Course with a note added to confirm that the course was approved by the Cyprus Human Resource Development Authority.

At the end of this stage of the training candidates will also be eligible to join the GAS SAFE Register in the UK the Gas Fitters Association.

Language: Greek / English

NOTE: The Centre is approved for over 30 modules it is impossible to cover all modules in one given time by the tutors. Therefore arrangements may be made to add more modules than the course can provide at a later stage. Each module after the teory training takes place could be at least 2-3 hours depending on the delegates attending and the module chosen to be examined on.
