Industrial Gas Training and Assessment (I-GAS)


Cochran is now approved by the Combustion Engineering Association (CEA) to deliver the new I-GAS industrial gas training and assessment for engineers and technicians working in factory premises containing gas fired equipment.  It is the only formal accreditation currently available that is specifically designed for maintenance staff and technicians working with gas in industrial premises.


Who should attend?

Suitable for Engineers / Technicians working on gas equipment in factory premises who can demonstrate suitable, appropriate experience and who have completed an approved gas qualification such as CCN1 and COCN1 or equivalent. An entry level (Level 1) is available for less experienced operatives.


What will the delegate learn?

The qualification is currently available in various levels as follows:


Level 1: Entry Portfolio
An entry level knowledge check for candidates with little gas work experience.   It does not permit a successful candidate to carry out any work on gas systems, but it qualifies candidates, with suitable experience, to move onto Levels 2 and 3.  The home learning pack familiarises candidates with gas industry standards, legislation and procedures.  The Candidate is assessed through a 60 minute Multiple Choice exam paper (open book).

Level 2: Industrial Gas Maintenance
For Candidates working on pipework, safe procedures for gas work, breaking into gas ways, repairing or replacing gas line components, strength test, tightness testing, purging & relighting end of line equipment.

Level 3: Industrial Gas Technician
For Candidates working on gas burners, gas pipework, understanding combustion principles and equipment, combustion analysis and emissions, setting regulators.

Both Level 2 and Level 3 are intense 5-day courses, consisting of practical and theoretical training with written examinations (open book) and practical assessment.  On successful completion assessment and approval by the CEA, the candidate is issued with a unique I-GAS identity card which is valid for 5 years. After 5 years the candidate will need to be reassessed to ensure compliance with current standards and practices

Note
1. Candidates can access any level for which they have suitable qualifications and experience. However, assessment at the higher level does not offer a presumption of competence at a lower level.
2. I-GAS is not a substitute for ACS / Gas Safe Register qualifications, for work in locations where these are a legal requirement. 

Course Date:

I-GAS Level 3 – w/c 3 December 2018
Cost:  £1475 + VAT per person
