CCPHSE Transition

Holders of a valid Utility SHEA (Gas) card that features the CSCS hologram are not required to complete the full standard CCPHSE course. Persons who qualify under this route may complete the CCPHSE transition course as an alternative to the complete version. This is due to the amount of material that crosses over from one scheme to the other. The four modules contained within the transition course cover situations specific to cross country pipelines and are expected to take around two hours to complete.

Please note: The transition course is only available to holders of Utility SHEA (Gas) cards featuring the CSCS hologram. Trainees holding SHEA (Core), Utility SHEA (Water), Utility SHEA (Electricity) or Utility SHEA (Gas) without the hologram do not qualify and must complete the full course.


    Trainer led theory sessions, followed by EU Skills multi choice assessment.
