Our accredited NICEIC ACS Initial Gas Assessment (CCN1/CPA1 + CENWAT) is the approved initial acs assessment route to becoming a fully registered Gas Safe for CCN1 (Core Gas Safety), CPA1 (Combustion Performance Analysis) and CENWAT (Central Heating Systems), on successful completion.
Undertaking your ACS is more about assessment than it is about learning. Most individuals undertaking Initial ACS will be doing so for the first time, having undertaken a comprehensive programme of learning and work placement — see our Managed Learning Programme (MLP) Course here.
In some circumstances, existing Engineers will undertake Initial ACS Assessment – this arises when existing certificates have expired more than 12 months ago.
Initial ACS is a mixture of assessing both your practical skills and theory knowledge. You can undertake assessment for:
CCN 1/CPA1: Core Gas Safety / Combustion Performance Analysis
CENWAT: Central Heating Boilers
CPA 1: Combustion Performance Analysis
CKR 1: Domestic Cookers
HTR 1: Gas Fires and Wall Heaters
MET 1: Meters
DAH 1: Warm Air Heating Appliances
*If candidates fail to achieve the required level of competency in either the practical or theory assessment, it may be necessary for them to re-sit the sections which they have failed. If this situation arises an additional cost may be incurred.
Initial ACS Assessment applies to anyone who is looking to be assessed on a natural domestic gas appliance of any kind for the very first time or where 12 months has elapsed since certificate expiry.
Specific entry requirements apply for this course, as per the Guidance Note 8 Validation of Training (GN8 VOT) document produced by NICEIC Certification. Most candidates would have been completed a Managed Learning Programme (MLP) Course or other accepted qualifications to be eligible for their Initial ACS.

The duration of this assessment varies from 5 days for a CCN1 assessment and another 1 day for any additional appliances, considering there’s no training requirement prior to your assessment commencement.
The ACS MLP Course fee is charged at £1,000.00 + VAT (£1,200.00) which includes your CCN1 (Core Gas Safety), CPA1 (Combustion Performance Analysis) and CENWAT (Central Heating Boilers & Water Heaters) categories.
At CDC Group, we take pride in ensuring that your knowledge and skills are always improving and have a structure that would enable you to gain qualifications that would enhance your earning potentials and employment in the industry.
