Gas Courses: Boiler Fault Finding taking our students further!

Gas CoursesPopularity in our Gas Courses seems to be growing by the day and we are seeing a mix of both New Entrants and Qualified Plumbers coming to train with us. After the course and the portfolio, we have found a gap that will allow for extra learning, especially with boilers.

Last year we added a new course to our Gas packages called the Boiler Fault Finding Course and it has proven to be a hugely popular among our students and also external Gas Engineers that are coming in to learn about Boiler Fault Finding.

The 5-day course is structured and designed by our tutors and gives a great insight into the fault finding of boilers. Our students are finding this to be a very handy course and have said it is making them more employable due to doing it.

Many of our Boiler Fault Finding students are currently out completing their portfolio with Boiler Medic who guarantees a portfolio placement for Able Skills students. John from Boiler Medic completed all his training at Able Skills and is now running a very successful company and is taking our students out for their portfolio and he highly encourages them to take the Boiler Fault Finding Course.
