Yes I have, basically a power point presentation session with a small assessment at the end, all based around IGEM/G/11 unsafe situations procedures.
About 25 fairly local engineers for a 3 hour session with lots of questions and answers.

I could not make the event as was away, so Gas safe re-organised an actual personal inspection with my usual contact.
Although i know it must have cost a bit more, i much much prefer it as the guy actually sees my installs and gives excellent feedback and help where the installs are a little unusual. (Non dom work).

Have to agree, I think in person inspections are better and should be carried out. There will be a disaster with this new system and HSE will come crashing down on them. Its a cost cutting exercise which will have bad consequences.

Can’t remember how many, maybe 40 or 50, it was open book you were asked to take a copy of unsafe situ. Dead easy pal, we’re told if you failed the test you’d get a site visit.

Haha, that’s a bit extreme! One thing they were pushing is for is engineers to report non 'Registered Professional Gas Engineer' installations or even bad 'Registered Professional Gas Engineer' installations we come across, I’ve seen plenty jobs not quite right when I go to do a service or landlords check, just bits and bobs like gas pipe slightly undersized or flue brackets missing, I’ll generally just speak to the customer/landlord and give them a price to do the remedial works to bring it up to scratch. GasSafe were encouraging engineers to report the job, I suppose it’s a way of doing site visits without wasting time on decent jobs, but I just guessing there.
