A new qualification for gas auditors – the CORGI Level 3 VRQ in Gas Auditing Processes – has been launched at the Gas Safety Management Conference 2014 by CORGI Technical Services.
The new qualification is designed for those who undertake gas audit work in any sector, including social housing, so that they can assess an organisation’s management of risk.
It gives a detailed understanding of the role of a gas auditor and best practice procedures, as required by gas managers.
“There is currently no specific qualification to which you can refer to find out if your auditors have up-to-date qualifications and the right level of experience,” says CORGI Technical Services CEO Claire Heyes. “This new Level 3 VRQ has been accredited by EAL and was launched at the conference. The qualification is a route which can lead to a Level 4 VRQ qualification.”
The course is a one-day guided learning event taken by experienced CORGI tutors, followed by self-study modules and assessment-based distance learning supported by CORGI tutors. Key areas covered include gas industry legislation, assessing quality control levels, planning gas audit processes, assessing gas work and effective communications.
The Level 3 qualification is part of the family of qualifications that include the CORGI Level 2 VRQ Award in Gas Safety Awareness in Social Housing, and CORGI Level 4 VRQ Certificates in Gas Safety Management in Social Housing and Gas Safety in Facilities Management.
H&V News was the media sponsor this year for the conference which took place over two days on 29 and 30 April 2014.
