Gas Training Courses: Train at the right centre and don’t risk losing your money!

There are still far too many people in the UK carrying out illegal gas work in people’s homes and this is putting home owners in danger.

It is becoming a regular occurrence for people to either complete gas work as they believe they know what they are doing or they are being trained incorrectly at their training centre. This is starting to come to a stop as the awarding bodies are now clamping down on training centres that are trying to fast track people into the gas industry.

Also, it isn’t just the problem with the training. Student’s portfolios are being incorrectly completed and they are just being fast tracked. The main aim of a portfolio is to show working evidence in the real world of what you have been taught in training. These types of gas training structures and incorrect practices are putting lots of people at risk.

Training centres have been shut down due to the incorrect way they have been training their gas engineer students or accepting incorrectly completed portfolios. This is leaving lots of ‘Gas Engineers’ without any certification and without the proper knowledge and skills. Also, they are losing out on all the money they have spent to train.

Gas Safety is a huge topic and ‘gas engineers’ have been jailed due to carrying out unsafe and incorrect gas work in people’s homes. Unsafe gas work can lead to gas leaks, explosions, carbon monoxide poisoning and even fires. This is a huge risk as gas can kill and if it isn’t done properly by the trained and qualified Gas Safe Engineers, then it can be fatal.

This is why it is extremely important that training centres don’t cut any corners when it comes to training gas engineers. Getting the right training is very important and getting it from the right training centre is also very important.
