INDUSTRIAL GAS ACCREDITATION SCHEME (I-GAS)
Guidance regulation 3 of the “GAS Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998 ACoP” States:
“Gas work for those working at premises that fall outside the scope of the Regulations should only be undertaken by a person who has successfully completed an appropriate full training course followed by an assessment of competence.”
The CEA’s I-GAS qualification has been created 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.
Following approval, the certified candidates qualification will be valid for 5 years from the date of examination.
