Assessment Information


Our Domestic and Non-Domestic Gas Foundation courses are designed for ACS Category 2 and 3 candidates wanting to enter the gas industry.




Category 2 trainees will hold a recognised qualification in the mechanical services engineering sector (e.g. plumbing) but lack gas training and experience, while Category 3 applicants are new to the gas industry and will need more intense training.


Further Information

Assessments normally consist of a combination of practical and theory examinations.

The course requires 40 days in our training centre, plus ‘on the job’ training with candidates providing work-based evidence under the supervision of a Gas Safe registered installer.

The course normaly takes place Tuesday and Thursday evenings 6pm to 9pm, so takes 20 weeks 

Your Gas Foundation Certificate will allow you to undertake the ACS gas assessments, providing entry at category 2.


Expiry Information    No expiry date is applied. (But there is an expiry for the ACS gas assessments which is five years).


Useful Information


On completion of the training, portfolio and successful recommendation, candidates are issued with a BPEC Gas Foundation certificate.
Upon receipt of the Gas Foundation certificate candidates can then apply to undertake the relevant ACS assessments, which can be done at our training centre.


Training Materials


The Gas Foundation Candidate Portfolio which is issued on the first day of the course, allows candidates to record all the training they undertake as evidence of the necessary knowledge and experience to undertake the ACS assessments.

Also it is recommended that you obtain the Domestic gas safety Manual 


Course Duration 20 Weeks
