This course is broken down into four steps:
Step one – your highly experienced and knowledgeable trainer will take you through all the basics of plumbing from hot and cold water systems, to fluid and expansion tanks, to designing heating systems all the way to the practical side of things where you will cover pipe joining, bending, soldering and pipe clipping. The New Entrants Plumbing and Gas Access Program incorporates Logic approved qualifications such as Water Regulations (WRASS) Hot Water Systems and Safety (Unvented Hot Water Systems or HWSS) and Energy Efficiency – Part L of Building Regulations (EEDH), all of which will be required after completing the Gas Foundation Course to allow you to complete your ACS training and assessment.
Step two – This is a mixture of classroom based and practical training. Your trainer will cover all the sections of Domestic Gas from Core Gas Safety in CCN1 to appliance specific procedures for CKR1 (Cookers), HTR1 (fires and space heaters), CENWAT (Central heating boilers and water heaters – formally CEN1 and WAT1) and also MET1 (Domestic Meters). This culminates with your APL (Approved Prior Learning) Assessment
Step three – The next step is for you to complete your ‘On-site Portfolio of Evidence’ as required by the ACS Scheme Rules.
Unlike some other training centres we guarantee your place for this two week stage of the Domestic Gas Course. You will head out on live jobs with one of our Gas Safe Registered Engineers dedicating their time and expertise to ensuring your Portfolio is completed to an outstanding level whilst also ensuring you learn as much as possible about each and every job along the way.
The Portfolio of Evidence is exactly what it says on the tin, you are required to create a portfolio of all the on and off-site jobs you do during your Foundation Gas Course. This is compiled by taking down calculated figures, analysing data and considering your personal insight into what happened throughout the job, backed up by photographic evidence of your movements and documentation, such as Landlord Gas Safety Certificates. Logic have a set criteria of jobs that must be completed and range across all appliances you will have looked at in Stage one of the Domestic Foundation Gas Course such as CKR1 (Cookers) HTR1 (fires and space heaters) CENWAT (Central heating boilers and water heaters, Formally CEN1 and WAT1) and also MET1 (Domestic Meters).
Step four – The final stage is completed in the training centre and it is a mixture of revision (theory and practical) and the ACS assessment. The assessment is a mixture of multiple choice, written answers and observed practical assessments.
