If you want to have a career as a gas engineer, you'll first need to earn the qualifications that certify your ability to work safely and legally. One of the most important qualifications in this area is the CCN1 gas core certificate; this certificate is awarded to those who pass the corresponding ACS assessment, which is one of the courses you can take here at Access Training Academies. Click here to find out more.
The CCN1 qualification covers the following:
- Gas safety legislation
- Gas emergency action and procedures
- All necessary safety aspects involved in the installation, maintenance and testing of gas systems
- Identifying unsafe situations
Obtaining the CCN1 certificate is an important step for those who wish to join the Gas Safe Register in order to begin carrying out paid gas work legally. This is because the CCN1 is required for any operative hoping to work on domestic gas installations and appliances.
Prerequisites for the CCN1 gas core certificate
All CCN1 candidates need to hold the CPA1 gas qualification before they can be assessed. In order to pass the CCN1 assessment, you will need to already have a thorough understanding of gas engineering and the associated principles. If you're new to gas engineering, our career change gas courses may be a good fit for you - these training packages are designed to help you become fully-qualified from scratch.
Once you have completed your gas course and passed your initial ACS assessment, we also offer a liquid petroleum gas training course and a periodic ACS re-assessment, so you can be sure that Access Training will always keep you on top of your qualifications even after you gain the CCN1 gas core safety.
