A Utility SHEA (Gas) passport lasts for five years from the date of training.

The Utility SHEA (Gas) scheme comprises of twelve modules. The eight core modules are common to all utility industries and form the basis of health, safety and environmental law and practices. There are four modules that are specific to the gas industry which cover working on the network and pressure regulating installation, and in domestic and commercial premises. All trainees will complete the core modules and depending on their job role will complete either or both the upstream and downstream modules.
