Changes to APL (New Entrant Gas program) - Important Information for 2017
As some of you may already be aware, there are significant changes due to the way new entrant gas training is to be delivered with effective from the 1st October 2017.
This is a requirement of IGEM/IG/1 Standards of Training in Gas Work, for all Managed Learning Programs (ACS or NVQ’s) that lead to registration with Gas Safe Register. This will change the way in which we deliver our Approved Prior Learning (APL) Gas courses.
The changes will require that there is a more in-depth focus on practical training and proof of supervised on-site experience and will result in the new scheme taking longer & being much more expensive.
CCTS will cease to offer the existing new Entrant APL Gas course from 1st October 2017. If you would like to take advantage of the current course formats, we would recommend that all APL candidates book on to our existing courses prior to the 1st October 2017.
The existing Logic Certification Approved Prior Learning Programme (APL) is a training programme designed to meet the requirements for Category 2 and 3 entrants to the Nationally Accredited Certification Scheme (ACS) for gas, as detailed in ACS Guidance Note 8 and 8A.
The existing APL programme consists of both centre training and 'on the job' work experience, gained whilst under the supervision of a registered gas installer, acting as the candidates mentor. We can help you with this and you will be able to carry out work in real properties supported by a Gas Safe Registered Engineer (this is available at no additional cost). Once the on-site work portfolio has been completed and signed off you are ready to return to undertake the training and ACS gas assessment for CCN1 and CENWAT. Successful completion will allow you to register with Gas Safe.
