Demand in ACS qualifications Re-Assessments Likely to Surge in Early 2021
As an accredited ACS Assessment Centre for Gas Safe Engineers, we are aware that the Gas Safe Register 6-month extension will soon be coming to an end – this means that we are expecting a sharp surge in registrations for our re-assessment courses.
The Gas Safe Register ® offered a 6-month extension for any gas engineers whose ACS Certification would be expiring during the COVID-19 pandemic, the intent was to cover the closure of training centres and help those who were unwell or shielding, and so were unable to train.
With this extension ending on the 31 March 2021, we are expecting a huge demand for our courses with the Gas Safe Register confirming an expected four-fold increase in the number of assessments that are due. We anticipate this will cause a backlog in re-assessments.
As we look to the start of the New Year 2021, we expect to see our course bookings increase, to ensure your certification remains valid we invite you to take advantage of our current prices and register now for your re-assessment course.
At CDC Group we offer a fully Covid-19 compliant, safe training environment at our brand new training facilities in Hemel Hempstead.
• From the 31 March 2021, normal ACS re-assessment timeframes will resume with no further extensions in place;
• Gas Safe Engineers whose ACS qualifications expired before 1st of October and who have been unable to attend reassessment due to the COVID-19 pandemic have been permitted to remain on the Register for up to six months after their current certification expiry date.
• Gas Safe Engineers whose qualifications expired on or after October 1st have until the 31st March to renew.
