Young girl wins Pride of Britain award for saving family from carbon monoxide poisoning!


The young girl, only 7-years old was woken up by her younger brother who was at the time experiencing nausea, hallucinations and felt completely disorientated. Remembering lessons taught from her school on gas safety she immediately recognised the symptoms as carbon monoxide poisoning (CO) she checked the carbon monoxide detector that was in her home and saw that the light had turned from its usual green colour to red. She woke her mother up and instructed her to ring for help immediately. She was even smart enough to recall the number, 0800 111 999, for the emergency gas engineer!

Looking to become a Gas Engineer?


The best way to start is to get stuck at Able Skills we have gas courses that are specifically geared towards new entrants. For example, the Gas New Entrant Gas Training Package is 7-weeks in total, during which you will learn the skills that are required for you to eventually be in a position to register with the Gas Safe Register. This package of learning is devised to take you to step by step through the various training in the essential skills required to become a safe and competent Gas Engineer!

We also run courses for experienced plumbers who are looking to also get some gas training. We know that this is a typical route for plumbers to take - the two trades a very similar in a number of ways and overall it just makes sense to eventually pick up both skills.

Qualified Plumber Gas Training Package 2, for example, begins with 5-weeks of training, which consists of Domestic Gas Safety Training. Upon successful completion, you will earn a  Bpec Gas Foundation Certificate - To gain this certificate you will need to complete a written and online examination to prove that you have understood and can relay and use the information absorbed!
