Changes to the Assessments

As notified in our previous newsletters we have changed our Certification Body to Logic Certification. CITB announced that they would be withdrawing from the industry with effect from the end of Jan 17. We are still running ACS & OFTEC assessments, don't worry, it is just the Certification Body that we use has changed.

We have fully transitioned our Gas and Oil assessments to Logic Certification, and are very pleased with the assessments completed so far. You'll notice a slight change to the flow of the assessment, and we feel that this is a positive move.

Completing the ACS/OFTEC assessment with Logic Certification is no different to completing it with CITB, you will still hold the necessary Certificate of Competence to register with Gas Safe or OFTEC. Hopefully the only thing you will notice is simpler paperwork and assessment flow!

As a result of this change we have also taken the opportunity to add three assessments to our Centre:
  • WAHLP1 - Caravan/Boat Warm Air Heaters
  • CoLPNG1 - LPG core to Domestic NG Changeover (ie CCLP1(PD) to CCN1)
  • CoCDN1 - Non-Domestic Core to Domestic Changeover (ie CCCN1 to CCN1)
We will be looking to add more assessments to our scope as time and space permit. If there is something you are looking for please get in touch as it may be something that is in the pipeline for us.

We are also able to develop and run bespoke training courses. If there is a need within your company for a bespoke course on a certain area please get in touch. We can work with Logic Certification to develop the course, and they will issue certificates at the end.


With the introduction of IGEM/IG/1 "Standards of training in gas work" there is a significant change to the way in which all Training Centres run their New Entrant Courses. All courses will be standardised throughout the industry, ensuring that all candidates receive the same quality training prior to undertaking their ACS. 

Operatives on our existing New Entrant Courses can continue with these until 30 September 2018, however all training, end tests and the ACS assessments must be completed prior to this date. Operatives who do not complete by this date will need to transition to the new scheme.

The new scheme is based on a whole job competency, and not just covering the Matters of Gas Safety that the ACS is based on. There are various different modules that make up the course, and these are dependant on the eventual ACS assessments that are going to be taken.
