Ten Tenants from Hull City Council are the first to complete the new gas safety awareness qualification from CORGI Technical Services.
The Tenants all volunteered to attend the course and have taken the qualification so that they have a greater understanding of the responsibilities of their landlord in complying with legislation and well as helping to raise the levels of safety in their community.
The course builds awareness in a non-technical way and covers basic safety aspects of gas installations, carbon monoxide awareness and landlord and tenant responsibilities, as well as some key points in Gas Industry Legislation.
The CORGI Level 1 VRQ Award in Gas Safety Awareness for Tenants has been designed by CORGI Technical Services and was delivered to the Tenants by Kevin Winship, an experienced CORGI technical expert and tutor in gas safety.
The qualification has been accredited by EAL and is suitable for Housing Associations, Local Authorities and private landlords.
The course runs for half a day and is assessed by a written examination consisting of multiple choice responses.
Courses can be set up and run on demand at a client’s premises.
The Level 1 qualification is part of the family of qualifications that include the CORGI Level 2 VRQ Award in Gas Safety Awareness in Social Housing, the CORGI Level 3 VRQ Certificate in gas Auditing Processes and CORGI Level 4 VRQ Certificates in Gas Safety Management in Social Housing and Gas Safety in Facilities Management.
