New Year of Gas Courses here at Able Skills

As the New Year is now in full flow here at Able Skills with lots of new courses under way, including our Gas Courses. Getting the right Gas Training is now more important than ever before…

Over the past few years Gas Safe have been cracking down on people completing gas work without the proper training and qualifications. Doing this is illegal and could leave you with a hefty fine and even a jail sentence. Gas work can be extremely dangerous and can cause fires, explosions, carbon monoxide poisoning and is a danger to life. Therefore, it is so important to be trained and qualified as a Gas Engineer before you complete any gas work.

Making sure our gas courses are run to the right standard means our students are well trained to safely and correctly go out and complete gas work in people’s homes. Just because you are a Plumber it does not mean you can carry out gas work. Completing gas work without the right qualifications and training you could potentially be putting people’s lives at risk.

Our gas courses have changed throughout the years to make sure they meet the standards of the industry and to ensure every single student gets the right training. We offer a variation of gas courses, from a New Entrants Gas Course to a Qualified Plumber Gas Course. This allows qualified Plumbers and new entrants to take the package that will adjust to their learning the best.

Most of the students here at Able Skills that complete the City & Guilds Level 2 Plumbing Course with us will then move onto the Qualified Plumber gas programme. Our plumbing courses have proven to be extremely popular and lots of students have upgraded to the gas course after starting their plumbing course.

We can offer a guaranteed portfolio placement for students that have completed all their gas training here with us at Able Skills. In 2017 we started working with Boiler Medic and they are taking our students on their portfolio placement. Boiler Medic is a very successful company run by a former student of Able Skills.

If you are interested in becoming a Gas Safe Engineer in 2018, please do not hesitate to contact us on 0808 100 3245 for more information. We also always welcome visitors here at our centre in Dartford. No appointment is needed, just pop down and we will be more than happy to show you around.Gas Courses
