Level 3 Diploma in Gas Utilisation Installation: Water Heating and Wet Central Heating

This qualification in gas utilisation covers the knowledge and the skills relevant to installation engineers working on gas water heating and wet central heating appliances in domestic and small commercial premises.
The qualification is based on National Occupational Standards (NOS) which describe the skills, knowledge and understanding to undertake a particular job or task to a nationally recognised level of competence.

Learners must be at least 16 years old. There are no formal entry
requirements for this qualification. However, learners must have the potential
to achieve all aspects of the qualification. In particular, learners should
be able to demonstrate that they have the minimum levels of literacy and
numeracy required to comply with the health and safety aspects of the
scheme, the completion of the learning outcomes, and the assessments.

This qualification is predominantly for learners who want to be gas installation
engineers working in the gas industry in UK, Isle of Man and Guernsey. The
qualification may also be suitable for learners who are interested in gas
utilisation and/or are considering a career change. The qualification has
been specifically designed as a competence component in the Apprenticeship


Where appropriate, learners will be assessed in naturally occurring planned
activities carrying out their work tasks. Assessment against the learning
outcomes of the qualification may be through practical observation and
oral questioning. Performance evidence may be provided by the employer in
partnership with the approved centre staff where established performance
management processes are used by the employer to monitor staff
The internal assessments will be a combination of on-screen exams, written
and short answers and simulated practical assessments
The internal assessments are set by EAL and the on-screen exam is marked
by EAL and all other internal assessments are marked by members of the
delivery team at the Centre.
Where the assessment takes the form of written/short answer or multiple
choice question papers, these must be treated as controlled assessments.

This qualification is made up of units to which appropriate assessment methods have been applied.   The units contain the learning outcomes and the assessment criteria that the learner is to be assessed against.

All learning outcomes within the qualification will be assessed.  In order to meet this requirement, it is advised that centres should maintain an assessment and feedback record for each learner.  This will detail the evidence evaluated against the learning outcome and the feedback given to the learner.
