Here at Brookhouse Training Centre we provide every single student that we train, a 100% written guarantee of a work placement, with an immediate start, in the student’s local area.

Stage 3 – High Intensity Training & ACS Assessments

Once your portfolio has been completed to a sufficient standard required by Brookhouse Training’s Gas Assessors, you will then be required to undertake a mandatory theoretical and practical assessment. This assessment will simulate the final CCN1 assessment (plus one appliance) to prepare you for the CCN1.

Followed by – ACS Assessments – Core Gas Safety (CCN1) including Combustion Performance Analysis (CPA1)

Plus 1 appliance from the following:

  • Central Heating Boilers / Instantaneous Water Heaters (CENWAT)
  • Gas Fires (HTR1)
