Who is this Aimed at ?
This course is aimed at all companies who may respond to CO Detector Activation, Reports of Fumes/Smells etc...
It assesses competency in identifying sources of CO using an appropriate analyser.
This gas safety training and assessment is designed to test the competence of an operative in determining ambient levels of CO and presence of CO2 in dwellings and identifying the cause of fumes using a portable electronic combustion analyser. This will typically be any engineer who responds to the genuine report of a CO alarm being activated or a report of fumes.
The scope of the assessment covers Type A, B & C domestic gas appliances fitted in dwellings and follows the guidance and procedures outlined in BS EN 7967 Part 1 to 4.
