Colchester Institute is delighted to announce we now offer accredited gas training for agricultural workers.

CI Business Solutions is a leading supplier of ACS Gas Training and assessment services, as well as professional industry training for the utilities industries.

The content and scope of this new course will help employers meet their obligations as required by the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974.

The content and scope of this qualification can be extended or adapted to meet the needs of employers within the agriculture and livestock rearing industry. We have a wealth of experience in writing and developing bespoke courses and we will work with you to tailor the course to your specific requirements.

Entry Requirements

Pre-requisites

The course is open to employees in agricultural settings. A technical interview will be conducted to confirm that the prospective delegate has the necessary aptitude to progress onto the course.

Expiry

Certificates will be issued by BPEC and are normally valid for 5 years.

It is important to recognise that this course has been developed to enable you to work in a location outside of the scope of the Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998, to be trained and assessed, to prove competence to carry out gas work solely in the agricultural poultry farm setting where you work. The competence does not extend to offices, spaces or properties intended for residential or domestic purposes, or, commercial premises. Therefore, in any other situations, it is a requirement of the Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998 that a Gas Safe registered company undertakes any gas works that are required to be carried out.
