The CEA’s Industrial Gas Operations Accreditation Scheme (I-GAS) qualification has been devised to fill this gap, in collaboration with industrial gas training providers, manufacturers of combustion equipment, and employers. It is the only formal training and accreditation scheme currently available that is specifically designed for maintenance staff and technicians working with gas in industrial premises.
Candidates for I-GAS qualifications are expected to already be working as mechanical fitters or installers, maintenance technicians or in other associated industrial activities where they are working around gas fired systems and equipment. They may already have domestic gas qualifications and need to enhance these with an industrial gas qualification, or they may have no formal gas training at all.
The Boiler Operation (And Manager) National Qualification has been devised in consultation with the Health & Safety Executive (HSE), the insurance industry, manufacturers of boilers, burners and associated equipment, and employers, with the practical support of The Carbon Trust.
The CEA has devised a scheme recognised by industry, insurers and HSE, which provides a comprehensive qualification for operators and managers of industrial and commercial boiler plant.
Since the demise of the former City & Guilds boiler operative qualification, there has been no nationally-recognised qualification. The CEA seeks to fill that gap.
The syllabus has been devised in consultation with HSE, the insurers, trainers and employers. It is based on the former City & Guilds syllabus, but updated and expanded to include, not only safe operation, but energy efficiency, environmental control, and the latest developments in automatic and remote control.
The qualification can be obtained in two alternative ways:
1. By attendance on an approved training course.
2. By application for assessment for those who can demonstrate sufficient experience.
