Qualified Plumber to Gas Safe Engineer

As a Qualified Plumber you will no doubt be extremely busy with work all year round, however, are you constantly getting asked about gas work?

It is becoming extremely well known to us that many qualified Plumbers are carrying out jobs and are being asked about gas work by the same customers. However, without being a Gas Safe Engineer they are not able to complete this work and therefore could be missing out on business as a Qualified Plumber

After becoming a Qualified Plumber, the natural progression is to go into the gas industry and become Gas Safe. It is a chance to upskill and increase your workload by not turning down gas work.

Qualified Plumber This is a former student that completed his Plumbing and Gas training at Able Skills

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.

Just because you are a Plumber it doesn’t mean you have the skills and authority to carry out dangerous gas work and put lives at risk. Here at Able Skills we believe in training our students the right way with no shortcuts, so they have the skills and qualification to complete gas work safely and correctly.

We offer a variation of pathways to become Gas Safe, if you are a Qualified Plumber you are not required to come in as a ‘New Entrant’. At Able Skills we have packages of training for those completely new to the industry and for those Qualified Plumbers looking to upskill. With dates now available for the New Year, why not begin planning to upskill and become a Plumber and Gas Safe Engineer.

Our Qualified Plumber gas package includes three weeks of training and then portfolio where we can now offer a placement. We have been working with a company called Boiler Medic since February and they are taking our students out to complete their portfolios.
