What are boiler fault finding courses and who are they useful for?


At Able Skills, we offer a large range of different Gas courses. They are all specifically designed for different purposes such as courses for qualified plumbers that are looking to add Gas to their skills. For example, Qualified Plumber Gas Training Package 3 - which is the complete package when looking to gain Gas knowledge as a plumber.

The training we are talking about in this article is Boiler fault finding courses - This course is aimed at those individuals who are looking to enhance their practical skills with additional technical knowledge on boiler maintenance, fault finding and repair. At Able Skills, we are experts in proving Gas training to students, ACS assessments and so on, but we realised that peoples knowledge of boiler service, repair and maintenance is quite low, that is why we have designed this course to specifically target this aspect of Gas work!
