Both MLP courses consists of centre based guided learning hours and ‘on the job’ guided learning hours gained whilst under the supervision of a registered Gas Safe Installer acting as the candidate’s mentor.  The candidate is required to fully complete their individual portfolio and the required hours for the course in order for a Training Completion Certificate to be issued.   The course starts with an introduction to Gas, Basic Plumbing, Electrics and Health & Safety.  It involves a mixture of theory and practical training, assessments which are both written and practical and an individual portfolio with records of their evidence of training.  With hard work, commitment and dedication from both you and us we can help you achieve the best opportunity to pass the assessments.

On completion of your MLP course your MLP portfolio will be checked and verified by our Assessors and Internal Verifiers.  Once the MLP portfolio has been approved you will be issued with your Training Completion Certificate.  Once you have received your Certificate you will then look to progress onto the Gas ACS which is the Gas qualification and also a pre-requisite of becoming a Gas Safe Registered Engineer.  Once you have gained the qualification you can apply to the Gas Safe Register, application to the Gas Safe Register is for yourself to either work for yourself ie own business or as an approved operative for a Gas Safe Registration Company.  It is an annual renewal and the fees are paid direct to the Gas Safe Register.  The ACS Gas qualification must be renewed every 5 years and this involves a re-assessment for existing registered Gas Engineers.  We offer these re-assessments at our Centre.
