National Caravan Council (NCC) Training Academy Certification in Electrical Testing and Inspection.
Under UK legislation, persons working with electricity must be instructed or skilled. This NCC electrical maintenance, Test & Inspection, course has been designed to cover the relevant skills that will provide a caravan service technician, the level of competence appropriate to carry out electrical work on touring caravans and motorhomes. The course is considered the minimum standard for anyone working on electrical systems within the caravan industry as a service technician.
National Caravan Council (NCC) Training Academy Certification in Electrical Systems and Circuits.
This course expands upon the skill base of the technician who has completed the Electrical Testing and Inspection Course and allows them to safely and competently carry out a wider scope of electrical work as part of a touring caravan or motorhome service. It is described as Advanced Electrical Training for Caravan and Motorhome Service Technicians.
UK Regulations require all persons working with gas to either be instructed (supervised) or skilled (unsupervised and qualified to sign off gas work). This qualification was formally known as ACoPs (Approved Codes of Practice)but has now been re-branded as STGW (Standards of Training in Gas Works). It is gas competence training for caravan and motorhome service technicians. It covers the key skills for gas safety; servicing, repairing and testing of the gas system and appliances; and issuing appropriate documentation.
City and Guilds in Caravan and Leisure Engineering.
In our eyes this course is the final qualification for a fledgling caravan and motorhome engineer to achieve after some months of experience, learning on the tools and having previously gained the qualifications listed above. The examination consists of both a practical and written assessment and would normally be achieved after approximately 2 years of experience.
A big thank you for the excellent service that Stowford provided to us when we came to collect our new caravan last weekend. To get to the site and find the caravan had been pitched and the mains power was already in place was superb…. Our whole experience at Stowford was incredible and all new staff we encountered were always polite and very helpful indeed.
Mr P Richardson, Redditch
I just thought I would put an email together to thank all the staff at Stowford. From the first contact right through to the handover and aftersales with a few minor niggles the staff have been polite and all wanted to help. I have to say I am very particular about purchases and nothing was too much trouble for the Stowford team.
Mr Wright, Bude
Just a quick note to you all to thank you for the very professional and helpful handover last weekend. It was a pleasure to meet you all and a real joy to experience real service again (something pretty rare these days!).
Mr Moore, Bristol
We want to thank you so much not only for our lovely caravan but also for your wonderful aftersales service.

Mr & Mrs Jeffery
We believe you have a wonderful team of employees who were friendly, professional and efficient, but above all understand the concept of customer service. Your team exceeded expectations of good customer service. Well done and thank you.
It’s been a pleasure doing business with you.
Mr J Bissell
Thanks to you and your team for your monumental efforts in handing over our new Bailey Unicorn Seville last week in time for us to get away as planned. It really is reassuring to receive such good service and to always be welcomed with a smile.
I must congratulate you all on the outstanding level of service we have been provided with ever since the purchase of our first new caravan. The whole process from purchase to handover was a real pleasure.
