Gas Inspectors Course

Print Email
ESAB have revised and reformatted the Accredited Inspectors training courses. These courses are designed to qualify persons to conduct full safety checks on individual oxy-fuel gas welding systems. Following satisfactory completion of the course examination a City and Guilds Certificate is awarded to successful candidates.


The training course is of 2 days duration with an overnight residential stay. The first part of the course involves theoretical instruction on oxy-fuel gas safety, the properties of gases, safe use and operation of systems. A proportion of the instruction is devoted to product design. The training is liberally interspersed with participative exercises illustrating the likely causes of risk.The second day of the course is entirely devoted to practical training. In this "hands on" session the candidates are taught how to fully test an oxy-fuel gas station and pass it off for safe use. Instruction is also given on risk assessment of stations in accordance with current legal requirements.


Each candidate will receive a detailed test manual containing easy to follow steps in the process. The manual covers inspection of regulators, hoses, safety devises and blowpipes and the relevant tests of integrity. Further, each candidate receives his own comprehensive tool kit to carry out the tests and inspection recording documentation.


Any person responsible for the practical safety aspects of oxy-fuel gas systems will benefit from the course. Such persons as safety officers, maintenance staff, supervisors or technical college and school lecturers would benefit.The two day qualification courses are conducted at our Waltham Cross premises. Residential accommodation is provided at a local hotel and lunch and dinner are included in the cost. The overall cost of the course is £525 +VAT to cover tutition, training material, toolkit and accommodation.


One day Re-Certification courses are also being held in 2015. These are designed for existing Accredited Inspectors who have already taken the 2 day City and Guilds Course. These are conducted at various locations in the United Kingdom. The cost of the one day Re-Certification courses is £240 + VAT.
