Why do Plumbing & Gas go hand in hand?


A lot of our students here at Able Skills taking Plumbing courses tend to follow it up by taking one of our Gas courses. This is not just because they want to broaden their skillset and earn money from both trades, but in fact, there is a lot of overlap between the two, same methods and so on. You may have seen or known a plumber who does both plumbing and heating that's because there are many diffrent heating systems; some that use hot water and others that use steam and hot air.

At our training centre, one of the most common connections between these two trades is the route students take from completing a City & Guilds Level 2 Plumbing Course to then enrolling onto our Qualified Plumber Gas Training Package 3!


Gas courses

This is our resident Gas Instructor Ian giving a demonstration to a student. 12 Years of teaching experience is no joke, he is highly experienced both in teaching and working in the industry.


We also run a course that combines the two into one, our City & Guilds Level 2 Plumbing & Gas course the total of 15-week course is broken down into 6 weeks for level 2 plumbing and 5 weeks for gas training. This course will help you to get a solid understanding of both of the trades at the same time, saving you time and money! We do also have a weekend version for those who have prior arrangements or an existing job the Part-Time Option consists of 15 weekends (over 30 weeks) for level 2 plumbing and 13 weekends (over 26 weeks) for gas training.
