What is BOAS?

The Boiler Operation Accreditation Scheme (BOAS) provides national accreditation for industrial boiler operators and boiler plant managers, a course recommended by BG01 ‘Guidance on the Safe Operation of Boilers’.

Spirax Sarco is a licensed and approved BOAS training provider. The D6A course provides training to the BOAS syllabus and includes the written examination. Candidates are also interviewed by a Gastec assessor during the course.

Successful candidates may use the designatory letters "Cert IBO" (Certified Industrial Boiler Operator) or "Dip BOM" (Diploma in Boiler Plant Operation Management). Candidates from both award categories take the same course and written papers. Interviews are specific to each award. The awards are valid for 5 years, after which a refresher course becomes necessary.
