Extended Training

Our customers have informed us of a requirement for some operatives to receive an extended training programme for ACS. This may include cases where time away from the trade, require the operative to refresh both theory and practical gas knowledge. Or where an individual wishes to extend their range or scope within the gas industry. 

We can tailor a training course to meet your requirements. 

CCN Extended Training Bristol

The course can include a blend of theoretical and practical tasks, giving the candidate an excellent opportunity to gain the knowledge and confidence required. Progress throughout the course will be monitored to enable both Gas Flare and the candidate/employer to arrive at a decision regarding the candidates ability to undertake the ACS qualification. 

A brief outline of the syllabus is listed below.

1. Ventilation

What people are saying about Gas Flare training

Highly recommended. Expert and knowledgeable staff with many years of experience at the sharp end of the industry.

The whole environment is very relaxed and informal, whilst remaining professional and thorough – and that is not an easy thing to achieve. The tuition and support were outstanding and made the whole renewal process totally painless.

Lots of free parking for the van, and lunch is provided.
