Which path is right for you?

Talk to your local Logic Certification centre to find out which training path is right for your career.

If you are interested in any of Logic Certification's training courses, as a starting point, you need to talk to your local centre which will advise of the best path for your particular needs. The following provides an overview of the routes available for building services engineers.

Heating engineers:

If you are an existing heating engineer, who has completed their Accredited Certification Scheme (ACS) in the past and you need to renew your qualifications in order to maintain your place on the Gas Safe Register, then ACS training and assessment is necessary. In some cases, assessment only will suffice.

If you are looking to join the Gas Safe Register but not yet completed your ACS, it may be that you're eligible for Approved Prior Learning programme. This Managed Learning Programme is designed for operatives with transferable skills - such as experience working alongside a Gas Safe Registered engineer - bringing them up to the standard necessary to take ACS. This is available for those looking to enter the Domestic, Commercial, LPG or Metering sectors and is recognised as a managed learning programme by the indsutry. Upon successful completion of the relevant programme which includes both in centre and onsite training, the candidate can enter the ACS scheme as a category 1 candidate and undertake the require ACS assessments.

In addition to gas ACS (including LPG), Logic Certification also provides oil-fired heating training and assessment for candidates requiring registration with OFTEC, plus Underfloor Heating training.

For those responsible for gas safety and the oversite and day to day management of gas installations and systems, Logic Certification offers a number of Level 4 Gas Safety Managment Qualifications which cover all aspects of regulation, management and operative of gas systems for different sectors including Social Housing, Residential Dwellings, Commercial Heating Plant, Commercial Catering Plant and LPG Parks and Homes.

Electricians:

If your role involves the installation of electrical equipment or appliances in domestic dwellings, then you require the Logic Certification Domestic Electrical Installer course.

The course is for operatives who carry out work on domestic electrical installations as their primary role, or as a secondary task to their main role, or who wish to gain a better understanding of electrical installations in domestic properties. It may be used as a pathway to the Level 3 QCF/RQF Initial Inspection & Testing and Periodic Inspection, Testing & Reporting qualifications offered by Logic Certification.

April 2013 saw the requirements for joining a Competent Persons Scheme for Part P change. New registrants must be able to demonstrate their knowledge of the 17th Edition Wiring Regulations BS7671:2008 (2011) along with an NVQ level 3 in electrical installation or the equivalent click here for more information.

Maintenance personnel and managers tasked to look after building services in the public sector including the electrical safety of appliances (PAT Testing) should consider the two qualifications being offered by Logic Certification to aid them in their respective roles. The In-Service Inspection and Testing of Electrical Equipment and for managers Logic Certification offers the Management Requirements for the Maintenance of Electrical Equipment. Both these qualifications have been developed in accordance the new Code of Practice 4th Edition.

For gas engineers who carry out gas meter installations and are required to alter or extend the protective bonding conductor, then the Protective Equipotential Bonding (PEB1) course is a simple upskilling qualification for this type of work.

Plumbers:            

For qualified or experienced plumbers, Logic Certification provides courses in Hot Water Systems and Safety, WRAS Water Regulations and Legionella Prevention and Water treatment.

There is also a Legionella course for managers who require an understanding of the subject but are not necessarily qualified or experienced plumbers.

Renewable installers:

If you wish to include renewable technology installation in your offering then our Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) recognised courses could be for you. These courses, in solar thermal hot water, solar photovoltaics and heat pumps, have been created for experienced operatives with a background in the appropriate building services discipline - plumbing for solar thermal and electrical for solar photovoltaics, for example.

To support the installation of heat producing appliances under the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) scheme Logic Certification offers the Level 2 Award in the Principles of Metering for Renewable Heat Installations which covers the design and installation of heat meters on systems as required under the RHI scheme. This is for specifiers, managers and installers.
