Train as a Gas Engineer the right way with us at Able Skills!

How does the process work?

Step one is the initial 7-weeks of training. During these, you will cover a huge range of topics including; health and safety, heating controls, soldering techniques, dimension calculations, hot and cold water theory, legislation, pipework, flueing, gas rates and so much more. These weeks will be mixed between classroom-based lessons and in workshops experience in an aim to give you the ability and the knowledge behind why you are doing what you are doing when carrying out tasks.

Step two is to find a 'placement'. Meaning you will need to work alongside an already qualified and registered engineer to gather evidence to put in your portfolio. A portfolio is required in preparation for your ACS and Gas Safe Registration. The portfolio is a chance to test your ability to work under pressure and your ability to ensure safety in every situation and most importantly of all, it provides you with the opportunity to work alongside an experienced Gas Engineer where you will learn more expanding on your experience so far.

The final step on this package is your ACS assessment also known as Approved Certification Scheme. This examination process will test both your practical ability and theory knowledge. You will take on Core Gas Safety as standard but you can also undertake assessments for; Central Heating Boilers, Combustion Performance Analysis, Domestic Cookers, Gas Fires and Wall Heaters, Meters and Warm Air Heating Appliances.
