The Gas Centre

Canterbury College’s Gas Centre offers an extensive range of BPEC ACS training, assessment and domestic gas courses.

Our new BPEC ACS Gas Training Centre, part of our new £50m College redevelopment, is fully equipped to provide quality gas training and renewable energy training to professionals in Kent and the South East.

It is a legal requirement that an individual operative is Gas Safe Registered (either individually or through a company) and holds valid and relevant ACS Gas training qualifications that are renewable every five years.

Re-assessment is required every 5 years for ACS certification and re-assessment must take place within 12 months.

It is the perfect place to unwind and get that little bit of time just for yourself – without breaking the bank.

Appointments are available throughout term time, but at certain points in the academic year appointments may be unavailable.

Students can get a variety of treatments at reduced rates, as well as the chance to be models for our Hair and Beauty students during assessments.
