- Open and balanced flue (natural draught and fan assisted)
- Central heating & hot water boilers
- Combination boilers
- Storage water heaters
- Instantaneous water heaters with a heat input equal to or less than 70kW.
The CENWAT assessment is not fuel specific and the range of appliances covered may be supplied by either Natural Gas (NG) or Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG).
Prior to taking CENWAT, gas engineers will need to hold an appropriate valid ACS core gas safety assessment and CPA1.
CENWAT is designed to assess the competence of a gas engineer to install, exchange, commission, disconnect, service, carry out repair and attend to breakdown of appliances. However, as with all ACS assessments CENWAT will only assess an engineer?s competence in matters of gas safety, it will not assess other associated key skills such as plumbing or the electrical installation etc.
You must hold a recognised gas qualification (such as Gas foundation) or, if already a gas engineer, a previous ACS CCN1 certificate. You must be able to demonstrate a commitment to attend the programme and a willingness to study theoretical and practical components of the programme.
Trainees will need to bring:
- Protective footwear
- Pen and paper
- 2 passport photographs
