The ACS Gas & Renewables Training Course is a five-step programme designed to allow new entrants to become gas and heating engineers.  Through practical and theory training and on-site experience, trainees gain the skills, knowledge and qualifications required to launch future-proof careers in line with the government drive towards Net Zero and a greener future.
ACS Initial Assessment must follow the completion of a managed learning programme and portfolio assessment. Upon completion, candidates can then apply for Gas Safe Registration. Experienced engineers with qualifications that have expired for 12 months or more must undertake ACS Initial assessment.
ACS Renewal allows existing gas engineers to renew their ACS qualifications and remain on the Gas Safe Register. Our trainers will assess existing gas engineers through written and practical assessments against the Domestic Suite of ACS Gas Qualifications.
Heating & Hot Water Design training will provide candidates with an understanding of S and Y plan systems, hot water storage, comfort conditions and essential heating and hot water principles.
The course will provide candidates with a complete understanding and awareness of Part L of The Building Regulations.
Heat Pumps will play a vital role as the UK strives to reduce carbon emissions and achieve Net Zero targets. Qualified installers will need to come from the ranks of existing heating engineers. Learn about installing low-temperature heating and hot water systems, ground source heat pumps and air source heat pumps.
Our Unvented Hot Water Systems course provides candidates with a certificate of competence as defined by the Building Regulations G3.
Options Skills' Water Regulations Training is aimed at gas and heating engineers who require knowledge of Water Regulations (1999).

Up to 31st December 2020 Regulated qualifications and UKAS Accredited certificates of competence issued in the UK were widely recognised by other EU member states. However since the UK’s withdrawal from the EU, individual member states that previously recognised a UK qualification may now no longer do so. Learners undertaking qualifications on the basis that it is recognised by an EU member state should in the first instance make enquiries with the relevant bodies in that Country to confirm its recognition status.
