  • Is this course for you?

    If you have little or no previous domestic gas experience and would like to start a new career as a domestic gas engineer and gain recognised UK qualifications this course is for you.

    The platinum package requires you to work with a qualified gas engineer to produce a portfolio of evidence to become gas safe accredited.

    Courses are split into 3 key areas;

    1. Practical (within a training centre)
    2. Theory (within a class-room environment)
    3. Home-Study.

    This course will take you from a novice beginner to a fully qualified domestic gas installer, by giving you an extensive grounding in domestic gas engineering. It covers several ACS qualifications and BPEC Gas Foundation Certificate.

    The main aim of this training course is to give you the “hands-on” knowledge and practical skills for your chosen trade, regardless of your current level of ability. This is a uniquely structured blended learning program, delivered by a combination of theory and practical skills acquisition.

    The practical training is designed to complement the course – not only bringing into context the theory you have learnt at home, but also giving you the knowledge, skills and experience you need to work competently and safely in your chosen trade. Successful completion of a Domestic Gas Engineer course leads to industry recognised qualifications. The theory and practical training lead to ACS Certification.

  • Careers

    Gas engineers do far more than install and fix boilers – with the right training, they can work with a whole range of gas appliances in both domestic and commercial settings, opening the door to a rich and rewarding career where no one day is like the next. For most people, a gas engineer is a helpful expert who makes sure domestic gas systems are correctly installed and running smoothly. In more troubled times, they’re even the hero who comes in at inconvenient times, ready to fix a boiler on the blink in the bitter cold of midwinter.
    However, that’s not all a gas engineer does.

    This is a role that will have you wearing many different hats – and one where you’ll never be bored with routine, as every job and every day bring new challenges. As a gas engineer, your job is to solve gas-related problems in domestic and commercial settings, and often with constraints.

    It’s also a role that’s suited for people who enjoy working with other people and helping them. You’ll spend a lot of time in other people’s homes and workplaces, typically installing, servicing, and repairing various gas appliances and central heating systems.

    Being a gas engineer is sometimes seen as a hard job. It can certainly be challenging. Despite this, figuring out solutions to complex gas and heating problems can be incredibly satisfying, while the excellent salary and prospects for career advancement make this an attractive career for ambitious people.

  • Other important information

    We prefer to keep classes small to ensure students receive quality training. There is a maximum of 8 students per group.

    You are welcome to bring your own tools, but we will provide all the tools and equipment required to complete training in the centre.

    You will need to wear protective shoes or boots; full-length trousers and a t-shirt or polo is a typical example of what students wear.

    We accept several different payment methods and finance options are also available.
