ACS Initial Assessment
Course Not Running
ACS training and assessment is a necessary requirement of being Gas Safe Registered – all gas installers must be Gas Safe Registered by law. The ACS Initial Assessment is designed for engineers whose ACS has lapsed and expired over 12 months ago.
From £2400 inc. VAT
Gas ACS Initial Assessment Course
We offer multiple ACS courses. Our accredited ACS initial Assessment is for existing Gas Safe Registered installers who need to renew their qualifications after expiring for over 12 months. If your ACS is about to expire or expired less than 11 months ago, you can sit the ACS Reassessment. Reassessment must take place every five years for these qualifications to remain valid and you can take your Course up to 6 months before expiry. This course is not an Extension of Scope. If you want to add appliance codes to your qualification, you must enquire about our ACS Extension of Scope Course.
The ACS Initial Assessment covers CCN1 (gas safety) plus four other optional appliances.
CENWAT: Central Heating Boilers & Water Heaters
HTR1: Space Heaters (including Gas Fires and Wall Heaters)
MET 1: Meters
Five years is a long time and even the most experienced gas engineer might feel a little rusty. We include free refresher training for candidates who want a recap on the theoretical part of the ACS assessment.
What does ACS training entail?
Whether initial, or reassessment, ACS Assessment is broken down into two parts – theoretical and practical examinations.
The theory-based section is an ‘open book’ question paper; you will also have access to British Standards, IGEM Standards, Technical bulletins, and any other relevant documentation that can be used as references along with the training manual.
Practical examinations are completed in VIVA’s purpose-built ACS assessment bays.
