Which course is best for you?


We run two different sets of courses one set of packages for new entrants and one set of packages for experienced plumbers looking to add Gas training to their arsenal. All of these courses can be taken on a full-time (Monday - Friday) or part-time basis (Saturday & Sunday). We know that it is impossible for some to spend their week at our training centre so hopefully, this part-time option gives some people the opportunity to give gas training a go!

New Entrant Gas Training Packages:


We run 3 different New Entrant Gas Training Packages - each includes a different number of courses, the first is the fundamental training. Over a period of 7-weeks, you will learn through practical experience, tasks and assessments. You will also learn the theoretic knowledge on a very large range of topics including:

  • Training on aspects of health and safety-relevant within the gas industry, including asbestos awareness
  • Training to work safely around electrical systems
  • Training in the use of copper and low carbon steel so that your pipe skills are established at an acceptable standard.
  • Training on heating controls, Airing cupboard and radiator installation practices
  • Training in all areas of domestic gas safety


New Entrant Gas Training Package 2 includes portfolio completion and an ACS assessment, both of which are necessary when looking to become an engineer. The third and final package includes everything talked about above but also includes a Boiler Fault Finding Course as it has become apparent to us that some candidates are missing knowledge surrounding servicing boilers - New Entrant Gas Training Package 3

How do I become Gas Safe Registered?


An ACS will need to be completed before you are eligible for Gas Safe registration and this is a requirement for all operatives involved in the installation, maintenance and servicing of domestic gas appliances and pipe-work installations. Also, every Gas Safe registered business renews their registration on an annual basis and updates their qualifications every 5 years, meaning you will need to refresh your memory on gas safety every 5-years! You can apply online, they have made it as simple and easy as possible - applying costs around £362 - do not try to avoid becoming registered because ultimately you will be found out!
