Description

In this Authorised Gas Tester eLearning course, delegates will learn what gas testing is and about the different types of flammable and toxic gases, their behaviours, and hazards. They will also learn about the roles and responsibilities relating to authorised gas testing; how to prepare for gas testing; how to safely carry out gas testing and gas monitoring; and how to interpret the results. This online course is suitable for anyone who may be required to carry out gas testing duties or as a refresher for competent Authorised Gas Testers.

This course alone does not make you a competent Authorised Gas Tester. Only once you have practised and have been assessed as competent, will you be permitted to carry out this role.
