Scam Alert: Build your work portfolio the right way!


work portfolioBuilding your work portfolio alongside a Gas Safe Registered Engineer is a simple and common step to becoming one yourself. A full work portfolio consists of you learning and demonstrating that you are competent in various aspects of your trade, taking you on your journey to work independently in the future. Now we all want results as soon as possible, however ensuring we are capable of working with the public and meeting their needs demands a realistic placement offering to do so in detail.

Now please do not be fooled. We ask aspiring students to not only be realistic, but to value their time and money when selecting which company to build their work portfolio with.

Ask Yourself this:

Would you hire someone to fix your boiler if they told you they became competent in just 1 week? Of course not!

It would be a waste of your hard earned money, not to mention the safety hazards that are associated with such incompetent work. Such necessary competence requires great in depth experience and can be completed over a period of time that allows you to deal with both simple and complex work. Typically, an adequate work portfolio placement can take between 3 and 6 months.
