HTR1 is designed to assess the competence of a gas engineer to install, exchange, commission, disconnect, service, carry out repairs and attend to breakdown of appliances. However, as with all ACS assessments, HTR1 will only assess an engineer’s competence in matters of gas safety, it will not assess other key skills such as building works or electrical installation etc.
Due to the range of appliances and work activity covered by HTR1, during assessment gas engineers must be able to correctly identify the appliance type, apply the guidance given in the manufactures instructions and appropriate British Standard, and ensure that the appliance is safe to use.
A re-assessment for Fires & Wall Heaters (HTR1), which is required every five years, is also available at a reduced cost.
Training is available at an extra cost and covers:
The types of appliances covered by HTR1 training and assessment includes:
- Gas fires
- Wall heaters
- Convector heaters
- Stoves, which may be open, balanced or fan assisted
- Flue-less gas fires (with and without catalytic converters)
- Greenhouse heaters
You will be taught by experienced and supportive tutors.
Candidates will complete a series of written and practical assessments.
Candidates may consider looking to add appliances such as (CKR1) Cookers, (CENWAT) Heating Boilers or (MET1) Gas Meters.
Our gas programmes can be delivered throughout the year. You are advised to get in touch to discuss how your individual assessment and training package can be put together.
To undertake any of the above elements the candidate will need to hold a current CCN1 certificate. Candidates undertaking any of the above elements for the first time would complete such assessments as initial assessments. Candidates renewing their elements would undertake as re-assessments as long as their previous elements have not lapsed by more than 12 months, in which case the candidate would need to complete an INITIAL assessment.
