Latest ACS Information

Icon are aware some ACS assessment centres are closed during the current Covid-19 pandemic, resulting in Gas Engineers unable to take their ACS reassessments.

In line with current guidance from and Gas Safe, we are going to stay open for a limited number of ACS reassessments, whilst we have sufficient staff to do so.

This will allow Engineers to maintain their ACS qualifications. Engineers should not attend the centre if they have symptoms, or should be self-isolating.

Gas Safe have advised where Engineers continue to work safely, HSE will permit them to remain on the Register for an additional period where ACS qualification have expired, providing they take reasonable measures to maintain their ACS qualifications.

To facilitate this requirement, Icon are accepting future bookings from the 11th May 2020. Please call 0161 763 5052 or email or to reserve your course.

Please note this is a temporary measure and Engineers must maintain their Gas Safe registration during the extension period if they are carrying out gas work.

Latest updates and FAQ’s can be found on Gas Safe Register.

We hope that you and your families stay well and would like to thank you for your support during these challenging times.

Coronavirus Statement

In light of the unprecedented pandemic caused by the current global Coronavirus (COVID-19), we just wanted to let you know how we are aiming to support all our customers. 

Firstly, there has been no relaxation of the proof of competency from the Health and Safety Executive and as such you will still need to renew your ACS as and when it is required.

To reassure you, we have put the following protocols in place to ensure the centre remains a safe place when you are attending for training.

Our priority is the health and wellbeing of our staff and customers.  Therefore, the team have all been briefed and asked to stay at home and follow government guidelines should they display any symptoms of COVID-19.

If you are unwell, it is of the utmost importance that you please reschedule your course and do not attend.  Anyone that attends with flu like symptoms will be asked to leave and reschedule.

We ask that anyone entering the centre washes their hands upon arrival, or use the hand sanitiser provided where you sign in.

We have deep cleaned the centre and will continue to ensure that the highest hygiene standards are maintained.  You will also be assigned a desk that you will use throughout the duration of your course.  Desks will also be cleaned every night once you leave. 

We will also be practicing – and ask you to support – further social distancing wherever possible.

We are constantly monitoring the Government advice and will update our protocols as and when needed.

If you have any concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Finally, we hope that you and your families stay well and would like to thank you for your support during these challenging times.
