Standards of Training in Gas Work (STGW) is the framework of qualifications that replace the discontinued Approved Codes of Practice (ACoPs).
UK Regulations require all persons working with gas to either be instructed (supervised) or skilled (unsupervised and qualified to sign of gas work). An STGW gas qualification is made up of a number of mandatory core and appliance unit modules. This caravan industry approved STGW gas training programme is specifically designed for caravan service technicians to carry out a service, safety checks, minor works and issue appropriate certification in relation to the gas systems installed in privately owned touring caravan or motorhomes.
New technicians accessing the qualification for the first time will need to take the full five-day programme. In addition, the learner will also need to provide evidence of experience in gas work: either through completion of basic gas training programme or working under supervision with their employer.
For technicians that need to renew their existing ACOP/STGW qualification, they can access the three-day refresher programme. This is an intensive assessment only programme; it is not suitable for new technicians or those requiring extra support. Technicians needing to renew their qualification can also take the full five-day programme if the dates/locations of these courses are more suitable.
