Boiler Operation Accreditation Scheme (BOAS) Training Course (CAT 2 & 3)





The Boiler Operation Accreditation Scheme is an internationally recognised accredited qualification for boiler operators that helps employers demonstrate that they have provided suitable and appropriate training to boiler operators and boiler house managers. Created by the CEA and backed by the HSE and insurers across the UK and Ireland.

This also gives responsible persons the peace of mind they have acted accordingly under HSWA and PUWER regulations to provide a safe working environment and training to give employees competency in using machinery and steam plant, as is their legal responsibility.


Duration 4-5 days

It is recommended in BG01 that all boiler operators/managers be trained to the standard provided by the Boiler Operation Accreditation Scheme. The aim of this scheme is to provide detailed information relating to the correct operation of a boiler plant whilst in keeping with regulations and requirements. We offer CAT 2 and CAT 3 training.
