ACS Gas Safe Work Portfolio Training Program:

Obtaining the Gas Safe Corporation yellow logo is the benchmark for all gas engineers to adhere to.

To obtain the Gas Safe (GS) certificate requires a Gas engineer to work with an approved company in building-up a stamped portfolio of safe client work.

Many gas engineers do not have the time to spend with individuals who want to obtain the GS cert, due to the fact they have their own work to get on with ∴ it’s extremely difficult for individuals to get their own jobs and build a portfolio. We partner you with an approved Gas Safe company, who will ensure you have the opportunity to become a Gas Safe engineer and build up your own approved portfolio.

Applying for the portfolio programme, you can apply for your CCN1 gas exam in as little as 6 weeks (subject to qualifications & work experience).

We want to help people to get into the industry and ensure they have the correct knowledge to become a SAFE gas engineer.
There is an easy payment plan to enable you to spread the payments over 3 weeks.

The ACS programme – you will adhere to a 3 week intensive programme working with one of our Gas Safe Engineers. Your Gas engineer will work with you for the full 3 weeks and will help you develop your portfolio by:

  • Taking photos for your portfolio work
  • helping & advising you with all the paperwork to ensure it is 100% in-order
  • Signing off your work with their gas safe number
  • You can email your designated engineer 24hr a day
  • or you can contact your Engineer by phone for advice, any time between 9AM – 5PM (Mon – Fri)

The Gas Safe course will cover the following safety points:

  • Gas Safety Legislation
  • Gas Emergency Actions and Procedures
  • Characteristics of Combustion
  • Installation of Pipework and Fittings
  • Testing for Soundness
  • Checking and/or Setting Meter Regulators
