ACS Gas Assesment: Course Overview

If you are planning to make your living as a professional gas engineer, you will first need to undergo an ACS assessment in order to get qualified and become a member of the Gas Safe Register. Gas Safe status is a requirement for all gas installers in the UK, and you will not be able to join the Register until you have gained the appropriate ACS qualifications.

Access Training’s ACS gas assessment packages are designed to get you qualified quickly and with as little fuss as possible. We offer the following options:
  • Initial CCN1 Only
  • Initial CCN1 + 1 Appliance
  • Initial CCN1 + 2-4 Appliances
Please note that all CCN1 candidates will also need the CPA1 qualification. Contact us to discuss your options with a member of the Access Training team.

Do I need to undergo an ACS gas assessment?

Our ACS gas courses are specifically geared towards gas workers who wish to join the Gas Safe Register and start carrying out paid gas work.

To pass your ACS assessment, you will need a thorough understanding of gas engineering and the associated principles. If you are a novice looking to take the first step towards a new career in gas work, we recommend that you enrol onto one of Access Training’s entry-level gas training courses instead.

Assessment duration

The duration of your ACS gas course will depend on which of the following packages you choose:
  • CCN 1/CPA 1: Core Gas Safety - Up to 5 Days
  • CCN 1+4: Core Gas Safety & 4 Appliances (inc CPA1) - Up to 5 Days
  • CENWAT 1: Central Heating Boilers - Maximum 1 Day

  • HTR 1: Gas Fires and Wall Heaters - Maximum 1 Day
  • MET 1: Meters - Maximum 1 Day

Getting re-assessed

Once you have gained your ACS qualifications, you will need to renew them periodically to retain your Gas Safe status and stay up to date with the latest regulations.

To renew your qualifications, you will need to attend an ACS re-assessment, which is another service that we provide here at Access Training Academies. Click here to browse our various re-assessment packages.
