CENWAT is designed to assess the competence of a gas engineer to install, exchange, commission, disconnect, service, carry out repair and attend to breakdown of appliances. However, as with all ACS assessments CENWAT will only assess an engineer’s competence in matters of gas safety.
The types of domestic appliances covered by CENWAT includes:
Gas engineers will need to hold an appropriate valid ACS core gas safety assessment and CPA1.
A typical practical CENWAT assessment for an engineer carrying this out for the first time will include:
CENWAT training forms part of CCN1 and appliances, or is available as a stand alone course.
HTR1 is designed to assess the competence of a gas engineer to install, exchange, commission, disconnect, service, carry out repairs and attend to breakdown of appliances. However, as with all ACS assessments, HTR1 will only assess an engineer’s competence in matters of gas safety.
During assessment gas engineers must be able to correctly identify:
Types of appliances covered by HTR1:
Prior to taking HTR1, gas engineers will need to hold a valid appropriate core gas safety assessment and CPA1.
HTR1 is available as part of CCN1 and appliances or as a stand alone course.
Covers gas work on all gas cooking appliances, including installation, commissioning, exchanging, disconnecting, servicing, attending to breakdowns and repairs:
When CKR1 is held with CENWAT and CPA1, the Gas Safe Register will recognise you as competent to work on range type cookers e.g. AGAs.
If the appliance is installed within a domestic dwelling and is connected to a Natural Gas supply, the engineer must hold a valid CCN1 certificate. CCN1 may also be appropriate where the appliance is installed in a commercial property. CKR1 can be completed by a commercial gas engineer holding a commercial core, where a cooking appliance is located in a commercial environment. In this case, the catering engineer holding CCCN1 could undertake CKR1 without CCN1.

For initial assessment:
CKR1 can be taken with CCN1 and appliances or as a course on its own.
