Product Description

The Safe Control of Operations (SCO) scheme covers all gas personnel involved in operational and/or minor works on the gas networks and certain types of meter installation. This includes, but is not limited to those who currently are, or will become, named Competent Persons or Authorising Engineers for both Permits to Work and Forms of Authority and, where appropriate, Routine and/or Non Routine Operations.

A Safe Control of Operations registration is valid for 5 years. Reassessment is then required in order to maintain specific knowledge in areas such as permits and update underpinning knowledge such as relevant policies and legislation.

A Safe Control of Operations registration does not confirm competence to carry out a task. It is designed to provide on-site evidence that an individual has attended the appropriate training course and demonstrated an appropriate level of knowledge and awareness.

Important Note:
Successful completion of any of the above SCO training courses does not infer competence sufficient to carry out any particular role.

The Employer’s Responsible Engineers must ensure a person’s role (e.g. Authorising Engineer) and work type (e.g. Network >2bar -7bar) is correctly identified and communicated to EU Skills for registration on the SCO database.

For example a person may have a role as an Authorising Engineer for PtW/FOA and ROs but limited to Competent person for NROs, in which case he/she would be expected to complete SCO 1 & 2 AEs and CPs plus SCO 4 & 5 AEs and CPs.

The price includes VAT and the EUSR card update fee.
