Gas Safety in the Social Housing Sector

We all recognise the importance of gas safety in the social housing sector, as the potential for things to go wrong is all too real. Current legislation, known as Regulation 36, requires landlords of local authority housing, housing associations and co-operatives to protect their tenants in just the same way as those renting in the private sector.

 

Improved standards for gas training

From 1st October 2017, all Managed Learning Programs (MLP) undertaken by new entrants into the gas industry will change. Logic Certification centres throughout the UK are ready for these changes, with Logic Certification's MLP including options for complete new entrants and those with some prior learning and experience in the gas industry or a related trade. 

New Gas Auditing qualifications

We have launched two new Level 3 Gas Auditing qualifications. One qualification has been designed for gas engineers responsible for auditing gas work, in order to check it is safe and has been carried out correctly - a particular requirement for social housing properties. The second Gas Auditing qualification is specifically for businesses that carry out audits of their own or other businesses operations as part of their work management procedures. 

Funded Renewable Courses at Narec Distributed Energy

Logic Certification approved centre, Narec Distributed Energy, has given heating engineers in the North East the chance to upskill into this important sector for free, with a range of Logic Certification renewable qualifications funded with money from the European Social Fund (ESF) and the Skills Funding Agency (SFA).

 

Time to prepare for the F-Gas tidal wave

As part of the drive to help slow the onset of global warming, the impending restriction on high GWP (global warming potential) refrigerants in the UK coming months and years, will have a needed but significant impact on the refrigeration and air conditioning sector.

Logic Certification keeps centres informed

Every year Logic Certification approved centres get together to find out the latest qualifications on offer, what's happening in the building services engineering sector and how these influences might affect their businesses. Keeping abreast of industry changes is key to meeting learner needs and responding to market demands - essential for the ongoing success of LCL.

Survey shows our commitment to our centres

Results from a recent survey show the majority of Logic Certification centres are happy with the service we provide, with many stating that we exceed in areas such as technical support and the certification process. 

New F-Gas qualifications launched by Logic Certification

We've launched a new range of F-Gas qualifications, essential for engineers working with fluorinated greenhouse gases in refrigeration, air conditioning and heat pump industries. Following recognition by DEFRA as a certification and evaluation body, we now offer Level 2 and Level 3 qualifications from Logic Certification approved centres throughout the UK.

 

Many Skills One Vision Conference

On the 15th June, we exhibited at the Many Skills: One Vision Conference, which focused on the Workforce Renewal and Skills Strategy recently launched by The Energy & Utilities Partnership. Held by the National Skills Academy for Power at St George’s Park in Burton on Trent, in the evening, there was an award ceremony - The People of Power Awards - celebrating the best young talent entering the sector.

 

Still a way to go with Smart Meter targets

The clock is ticking away on the smart meter roll-out and there's still a lot of work to be done if energy suppliers are to meet government targets.

All homes and small business sites will be offered smart meters by their energy company between now and the end of 2020.
