CIPHE Look to stop the confusion surrounding Gas Boilers!

Here at Able Skills we have been teaching Gas training courses for almost 20-years. It is important to us that we keep up-to-date with what's going on in the industry. Gas Engineers may have been confused recently by the government when a clerical error, a promise to outlaw gas boilers in new homes by 2023 was accidentally included in their Ten Point Plan to increase future home standards. This statement has now been removed/deducted from their plans. Originally they said  that all new developments in the UK are required to be nearly zero-energy buildings before 2021 and that central heating appliances in all newly built properties will be banned, and will therefore require an alternative heating source such as a heat pump or hydrogen powered boiler. This means that until this comes into effect Gas boilers can still be installed in new builds and as for existing properties it looks like regular Gas boilers can be installed into the foreseeable future...

Gas Safe Registered Engineer.

So, don't panic it looks like Gas boilers are still going to be used for a long time and will need to be installed in thousands of properties on a regular basis. The move towards new, more efficient and environmentally friendly alternatives will come into effect at some point in the future but for now it is a big ask. Not to mention everything else going on these days. The CIPHE says that the government is listening to industry on how to proceed. With pledges to increase heat pump manufacturing to 600,000 units per year by 2028 and manufacturers rising to the challenge to convert boilers to hydrogen, the industry is on course for rapid technological change. Here at our training centre we will continue to do our part in the industry by producing high-quality, competent and professional Gas Engineers!

Thinking about making a change? Starting a new career? Working as a Gas Engineer is a great opportunity for solid earnings and a rewarding profession. We aim to make the process from beginner to qualified as straightforward as possible. Which is why we group all of the necessary training and assessments in preparation for Gas Safe Registration into packages. Our New Entrant Gas Training Package 2, for example, includes 7-weeks of both practical learnings and theory sessions, portfolio completion and an ACS assessment. All of the stages you need on your way to registration. Our instructors are experts in trade and will be there to guide you the entire way, all equipment, materials and so on will be provided for you. After your initial 7-weeks of training you will need to find an Engineer to work alongside in order to collect evidence of yourself working on the tools.
