Industry Recognised Qualifications
The back room roles of staff concerned with the management and administration functions of a service contract can be as crucial to your business as the servicing and safety checks themselves.
As an approved training centre for Logic Certification, Morgan Lambert can offer nationally recognised industry related qualifications through the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF) route.
Ideally suited to administrators and call centre staff, our Level 2 “Gas Safety Awareness in Social Housing” is an ideal starting point, giving the learner valuable information in some of the technical aspects in relation to gas work and carbon monoxide awareness.
If the role requires a more in depth technical awareness, then our Level 4 “Gas Safety Management in Social Housing” would be the ideal qualification to meet these requirements.
For already established technical staff, we also offer level 3 qualifications in gas work auditing.

Gas Safety Management in Social Housing – Level 4
Aimed at social housing staff that manage or oversee work on gas appliances to give them a comprehensive understanding of all aspects of gas safety, this level 4 course is an assessment based distance learning package leading to a nationally recognised RQF qualification accredited by Logic Certification.
The qualification comprises of five mandatory knowledge units:
- Combustion and carbon monoxide – an explanation of the combustion process, how carbon monoxide is formed, its effect on the human body and how to spot the danger signs.
- Flueing and ventilation of gas appliances– an in depth look at the two most important aspects that gas appliances depend on for their safe functioning.
- Appliances, meters and pipework – an understanding of the different types of appliances, meter and gas installations that are encountered in social housing properties.
- Gas safety management in social housing – the requirements of social housing providers in relation to all aspects of gas work including employee awareness and quality control.
- Gas safety legislation – an understanding of industry documentation such as regulations, British standards and how they affect the work carried out in social housing properties.
The course consists of a guided learning session followed by a supported study period in which learners will produce a portfolio of evidence at their preferred pace to support the knowledge gained whilst carrying out their day to day duties in gas safety management. The pass mark is 75% for each unit, in addition to a professional interview in order to achieve the Level 4 award. The guided learning session will usually take place at your own offices
