Here at Able Skills as a provider of Gas training courses we are proud to be supporting Gas Safety Week 2020 - The campaign has started off today with some new statistics that show one in every five homes on the average British street houses at least one dangerous gas appliance, experts are calling on neighbours to consider not just the health of those they live nearest to, but also their safety by warning of The Ripple Effect – the devastating impact that one innocent gas safety slip can have on the whole community. - Today let's look at what's going on this week and how to get involved with gas courses at our centre...

What's the 'Ripple Effect'?


Gas Safety Week has started with a story piece outlining the dangers of Gas and subsequently the effects that faulty appliances can have on the surrounding areas, houses and people that live near the fault. the Ripple Effect short film tells the story of an ordinary neighbourhood, during an ordinary evening when an extraordinary event happens – a gas explosion rips through a terraced house with devastating consequences. But what caused it? You will have to check out their film below...



Want to become a Gas Engineer?


Thinking about a career in the gas industry? Becoming a Gas Engineer is a great opportunity and can be a very fulfilling career path. Becoming your own boss with this trade means that problems like the current pandemic can't control your employment status. There are many reasons why you might want to become your own boss. Not answering to anyone or dealing with colleagues less dedicated to the job as you. Things like deciding your own hours, when you work, where you work. The path from beginner to professional isn't easy, however, we try to make the process as simple as possible by compiling all of the needed training aspects into packages. We call these our New Entrant Gas Training Packages we even have packages for those who are working plumbers looking to add the skill of gas to their arsenal: Qualified Plumber Gas Training Packages.
