This is the assessment for converting natural gas qualifications to LPG and is a pre-requisite assessment for all other LPG appliance assessments, without holding an existing LPG core qualification.
The qualification is required if candidates wish to undertake work within the LPG sector within domestic properties and residential park homes (defined as log cabins or chalets).
If the candidate wishes to work on mobile homes (static caravans) or touring caravans they will need to undertake this Natural Gas to LPG conversion plus the Leisure Accommodation Vehicles (LAV) assessment.
PLEASE NOTE: This is the same qualification required for anyone 're-assessing' for their existing LPG changeover qualification.
Upon successful completion of the assessment candidates will be able to undertake work within the LPG sector, within domestic homes, residential park homes, leisure accommodation vehicles and boats, depending upon the appropriate assessments being successfully undertaken.
Anyone who holds a current domestic or commercial/industrial core gas safety qualification and wishes to undertake work within the LPG sector.
Candidates will need to have a current domestic or commercial/industrial core gas safety qualification.
Evidence of this natural gas qualification will need to be proven with the relevant and most up-to-date certificate(s), at the start of the course.
For those who do not hold the relevant core gas safety qualifications South West Assessment and Training offer a Managed Learning Programme Gas course for new entrants

Half a day should be sufficient per add-on taken in addition.

Anyone requiring training should consider undertaking the LPG training course
For anyone new to the gas industry or who feel that they require further training, then the Managed Learning Programme Gas course for new entrants or our Fast-track Gas Course should be considered.

Candidates who successfully complete the assessment(s) will be certificated under the ACS scheme for the appropriate installations/appliances for which they have been assessed, and will then be able to apply for Gas Safe Registration.
It is an open book assessment and it is therefore highly recommended that candidates undertaking it have an up-to-date gas publication.
