Energy & Utility Skills Group is a ‘Recogniser of Training’ for IGEM/IG/1
All training programmes and assessment in downstream gas work must comply with IGEM/IG/1 ‘Standards of Training in Gas Work’ and be recognised by an IGEM accredited ‘Recogniser of Training’.
If you have a gas training programme that falls into this category, then our years of experience working with employers and training providers in the gas industry means we’re uniquely placed to offer support, advice and guidance throughout the recognition process and beyond.
