CMA1 ACS - Core domestic and gas metering work (CMA1).
|CMA1 plus associated pipework or meter elements|
|Expiry:||5 years. Candidates can undertake the re-assessment of any element up to 6 months early without losing any time (MOT Style). Previous certificates must be produced at the time of assessment as evidence.|
CMA1 (or a suitable changeover) are required for any operative wishing to either carry out emergency service gas work or gas metering work. In addition, the operative must hold the relevant pipework or meter element for the work they wish to undertake.
The candidate will be assessed in the following areas:-
For the initial assessment candidates must meet the entry requirements for category 1, 2, and 3 entrants (see ACS scheme rules).
For re-assessment candidates must have held the element previously - if this has expired within 12 months of the assessment date the initial assessment must be undertaken.
The CMA1 core meter gas safety certificate has an equivalence to a Level 3 QCF qualification in the gas utilisation sector (which is also aligned to ACS) and satisfies the same gas safety criteria leading to a certificate of competence recognised by the Gas Safe Register.
|Assessment method:||Assessment is carried out using a variety of methods including multiple choice, short written response, scenario questions and observed practical assessment.|
