You need to do a forecourt training course.
It takes about 1/2 a day and needs doing every 5 years.

It is basic stuff, genral health and safety and then special
attention to brazing and hot works for obvious reasons.

Found this.

Just one of many, many companies offering the training.

Oh and it takes 2 days not a 1/2 like I thought (the 1/2 day one must be a refresher).

Thanks very much chaps. I had concerns re the 17th ed but the half day isn't too bad and maybe worth doing

rb its well worth doing petrol stations-for the big petrol stations, be careful of the franchise ones-u can normally tell them as there is prayer mats in the toilets and half the pumps dont work.
the course will pay for itself when u pull some of the fridges out,all them pound coins! its worth getting kicked whilst changing 10 watt multifit fans

Spend more time doing the paperwork at these places than doing the job.
