Operative are required to obtain qualifications under the Accredited Certification Scheme (ACS) which is regulated by the United Kingdom Accreditation Services (UKAS). Our centre offers initial assessments for those looking to enter the industry, or re-assessments for qualified engineers who need to be re-assessed every five years.

In order to achieve an ACS certificate, the operative needs to pass assessments at an assessment centre approved by an accredited Certification Body such as BPEC Certification Ltd. The operative undertaking initial assessments should have attended a training course prior to ACS assessments. It is not a requirement for an individual undertaking re-assessment to attend a training course, however, it would be very helpful in preparing for the assessments and updating on changes within the industry over the past 5 years.
