Rf Training has developed a bespoke corgi plumbing course (now known as gas safe) programme that allows new entrants to the gas industry to fast track to become corgi registered.
Our Gas course incorporates essential pipe fitting and central heating installation skills as well as the BPEC Gas Foundation Certificate. In addition Rf Training are able to provide a whole range of supplementary training programmes to meet your individual needs.
If you are already in the plumbing/mechanical services industry it is likely that you will be able to reduce the length of your programme by just following the BPEC Gas Foundation. This is subject to individual assessment.
The BPEC Gas Foundation programme must be completed in full before a candidate can be accepted onto the ACS Initial Training & Assessment programme. The BPEC Gas Foundation will provide an individual with critical foundation knowledge and understanding that must be gained before entering the gas industry and ultimately achieving Corgi Registration.
Following completion of the BPEC Domestic Gas Foundation training programme, the candidate must now work with a Corgi registered installer who must observe and sign-off a set number of tasks to complete the candidate’s portfolio.
Rf Training will place you with a corgi certificate Registered Mentor who will help you build your on-site portfolio of evidence as well as help you gain valuable on-site experience that incorporates a number of tasks.
Anybody that wishes to become Corgi Registered ) Registered. Previous experience is not necessary.
