CORGI announce first candidate to complete VRQ

CORGI Technical Services Ltd has announced that the first person to successfully complete the new VRQ in Gas Safety Management in Social Housing is Incommunities Gas Servicing Manager Darren Fountain.

Set up jointly by CORGI Technical Services, the leading provider of gas safety services, and EAL (Excellence Achievement Learning), the specialist employer-recognised awarding body, the VRQ (Vocationally Recognised Qualification) in Gas Safety Management in Social Housing is the first sector specific gas safety qualification.

The Level 4 VRQ is aimed at management level expertise and is similar to an NVQ. It has been created to meet the needs of social housing organisations who wanted a recognised qualification to validate their skill and enhance their knowledge in delivering effective gas safety management.

Darren Fountain said: “This qualification has added to my skill levels and knowledge particularly relating to the latest gas safety legislation. With the support of my employer this qualification will help me provide the best service possible to our customers.”

CORGI Technical Services Joint Chief Executive Claire Heyes added: “We are delighted that Darren has completed his VRQ qualification – he will be the first of many other managers responsible for gas safety who are currently nearing completion of the course. We are confident that the qualification will help them to carry out their roles with greater confidence and knowledge.”
