Requirements
  • CPCPCM2043 Carry out WHS requirements 
  • UEERL0004 Disconnect-reconnect electrical equipment connected to low voltage (LV)  installation wiring. 

Note: The applicant must obtain the pre-requisites prior to commencing and completing the  CPCPGS4023 course section 

  • Licensed Electricians, Restricted Electrical Licenced with Disconnect & Reconnect will be  eligible for RPL or Credit transfer to recognize the UEERL004 unit 
  • OR: If you do not already have the above qualifications, we now offer Type B blended restricted electrical training course, which can be embedded in the Type B gas training. 

The participants will complete the Restricted Electrical Licence course units first including the practical, then continue to the Type B gas course, where the balance of the restricted electrical is completed. Hence why the courses are blended, the training is separate and are standalone courses. 

Limitations
  • The gas pipework to the appliance is considered Type A gas work, therefore the Type B authorisation / approval qualification does not allow you to work on Type A gas appliances, and you are not authorised to install pipework, cylinders etc. to the Type B appliance, as this is considered Type A gas work.
Type B Appliance definition
  • An appliance, with gas consumption in excess of 10 MJ/h, for which a certification scheme does not exist (applicable in Australia only).

    Note: A Type A  gas appliance when used in an industrial/commercial application for which it was not intended is considered to be part of a Type B appliance. An example of this is a certified direct-fired air heater used as the heating/ventilating device in a spray/bake paint booth.

FAQs

Why do I need to do the eLearning?
The eLearning enables the student to streamline their training, to program bite size study sessions. There are no short cuts to study, Bizmatrix has designed the Type B gas course to be your virtual classroom, unlike the face to face day. The student is able to pace the study to their pace, and repeat the explanation when ever where they want. Due to Covid-19 we implemented the seven modules online. And when we were clear to do the face to face, it reduced the class time from 10 days to only 5 days, the difference the 5 days was spent on just practical hands on education and assessments. With minimal theory, during the face to face five days.

In all cases, the students loved this method of learning saying:

“I learnt more as it gave me time to absorb and learn the information.”
“I found the videos great, as they were in bite sizes and I was able to view them over and
over if I wanted.”
“It was like having my own virtual teacher at call “
“The virtual classes really helped me for any questions we had?”
“Wow, that first day of face to face!, straight into the deep end of the pool with practical on Megan Vegan air heat burner”,  I was surprised at how much the online learning helped.. it
all made sense then.”

The online learning builds up the knowledge and then the face to face practical is where the student’s connects the dots.

The online component helps to reduce that fear of failure and clear the path to create a positive learning experience, where the student enjoys the learning journey and walks away with the
tools to go further.

Why do I need to use a computer?
Type B gas appliances require the ability to do high level work and is a complex subject and requires the student to access large quantities of information, and many complex calculations.

A computer and associated software is a necessary tool for any Type B gas professional to create submission, checklists and record data.

Paper evidence is limited and is required to be electronically stored; it is easier and more efficient to cut the paper from the beginning. The computer and electronic submissions helps you concentrate on the important things – learning to be competent at Type B gas, so you can do the job safely and compliantly.

Once I pass the course – what is next?
If you only require a record of results, then you do not need to get a restricted electrical licence/electrical permit.  Just provide a copy of the record of results to your employer.
If you need a Statement of Attainment, then you will require a Restricted Electrical Licence first. You have 11 months to complete and get the Restricted Electrical for the Type B gas Statement of attainment.

If you have the Statement of Attainment, then apply for a Gas Work Authorisation or a Type B gas licence. Note that there will be licensing requirements for these applications. We recommend you maintain your currency and you should plan to complete refresher training throughout your licence or work career.

It is highly recommended that you have all the required test equipment and tools required for each of the qualifications, including the following Type B gas work:
•  Multi-meter
•  Insulation / continuity meter.
•  Leakage clamp ammeter.
•  Low pressure manometer X 2
•  Medium pressure manometer.
•  Pumpy pumpy- pressure kit
•  Combustion analyser- two cell
•  Annometer or peto tube.
•  Ipad or tablet with a Sim card
•  Laptop with
