Partnership with ViperGas gives gas engineers a discount on publications and equipment

An exciting new partnership has been agreed between ViperGas and the Bicester Construction Skills Centre, part of Abingdon & Witney College. The new arrangement will enable gas engineers taking certificates at the new ACS centre to get a discount off ViperGas publications and equipment, as well as free shipping when they order. Products include workbooks and training manuals for ACS courses, as well the manuals that every gas engineer needs to work effectively. Equipment available at discount includes flue gas analysers, multimeters, voltage testers and TB1118 kit, amongst others.

Mark French, Head of Bicester Construction Skills Centre said:

“This is a great opportunity for our apprentices and ACS customers to secure a large discount against equipment and publications that they will need at work. We have a number of places still available on CCN1 re-assessment, unvented hot water and LPG courses at the moment, so this partnership will allow our engineers to benefit from a discount with ViperGas, as well as very competitive prices on our courses in our brand new facility.”

As well as a professionally run ACS gas centre, the Bicester Construction Skills Centre also offers training for apprentices in plumbing and heating, gas engineering, carpentry and joinery and property maintenance. Other training options include Foundation Gas courses, and some funded courses to help individuals already qualified in plumbing at level 2 to undertake their gas qualifications. If you are interested in finding out more about these courses, please call 01235 54 11 11 or email bicestercsc@abingdon-witney.ac.uk.
