The NCO gas scheme is an evidence-based skills scheme for individuals working on the gas network infrastructure. It categorises some aspects into ‘pipe size’ categories and can also incorporate registration of an individual’s specialist skills such as Escape, Locate & Repair.

There are 3 routes to registration for the NCO (Gas) scheme:

  1. completion of a regulated national vocational qualification (NVQ), e.g. City & Guilds Level 2 Network Construction Operations (Gas), or
  2. completion of the Level 2 Gas Network Team Leader (GNTL) Apprenticeship or
  3. completion of the Gas Network Operative (GNO) Apprenticeship
