The Gas Certification Company Limited opened for business on 2 July 1997. Initially operating from rented premises, the Company now owns its premises in Blantyre Industrial Estate – a basic industrial unit which was purchased and converted into a bespoke training centre of the highest quality in 2003.
Gas Certification Company Limited was formed to provide engineers with training and assessment for Gas Safe registration. Initially training was presented to meet ACOPs standard and then the ACS qualification which was introduced in 1999 replacing ACOPs by 31 July 2003.
With the introduction of ACS, the Company appointed Zurich Certification, who later became NIC Certification as its regulatory body. As the business grew the Directors decided to appoint a further regulatory body to share the work load. It was also felt that the Company had reached a stage where it should not be dependent on the services of one provider. Gas Certification Company Limited now uses the services of both NIC Certification and Logic Certification.
Within a short time of commencing trading the Company expanded its portfolio of training courses to include LPG and OIL (OFTEC). In the following years further courses were introduced and the extensive range of courses now includes Electrical, Solar Energy, Water Regulation etc.
In addition to the regular courses, bespoke training designed to meet specific requirements are also available, In October 2008 Gas Certification was appointed by PRI limited (Winchester, England) and Entity Solutions, (Udaipur, India) to create a training course in gas safety and competence for their scientists involved in the design of an electronic smart gas meter.
The expertise available within the company allowed the staff to develop a gas safety consultancy service and to provide Gas Safety Audits for local authorities and housing associations. The directors’ policy from the outset was that Gas Certification Company would have no involvement in the installation or servicing of gas appliances, as this would bring them into direct competition with their customers. This enables the Company to offer a completely impartial audit service free from conflict of interest.
To complement the Gas Safety Audits, Gas Safety Awareness Courses were developed to educate those who do not require formal gas qualifications, but have responsibility for gas installations, in their responsibilities and the procedures required to manage gas contracts safely. The courses have proved to be popular with Housing Association and Local Authority staff.
The common approach for Risk Assessment (RA) is to focus on the higher risk practices and input rules to develop a ‘Suitable and Sufficient’ RA.
The course arrives on your desk top, tablet or smart phone via email and will allow you to study at a pace that suits you, your work environment and commitments.
