Gas Safe

For many of you undergoing Gas Courses or thinking about becoming a Gas Engineer, you will have all heard of the Gas Safe Register. We are all told that Gas Safe truly set the standard for qualified Gas Engineers and it's something everyone new to the trade aspires to apply for, and rightly so! It's a true privilege to say you're a Gas Safe Registered Engineer and today we talk about exactly why that's the case!

So what is the Gas Safe Register and who can apply?

The Gas Safe Register represents the official list of gas businesses who are registered to work legally and safely on boilers, cookers, fires and all other gas appliances. As per their website, here is what they bring to the industry:

  • a national investigations team tracking down illegal gas workers
  • regular inspections of Gas Safe registered engineers
  • educating consumers and raising awareness of gas safety
  • investigating reports of unsafe gas work

Only those who successfully pass their Gas Courses and ACS Exams are eligible to apply. By genuinely becoming qualified, you help reduce the risk of unsafe gas work and play your part to protect the public from cowboys and rogue traders which we speak about next...

Trusting The Triangle

Able Skills Gas Courses are Bpec Approved

The famous Gas Safe logo represents a symbol of trust for anyone looking to employ a Gas Engineer. Not only does it represent trust, but it immediately tells those who are not qualified that 'ok, this person has what i'm looking for'. You will find that more work comes your way as you have to ask yourself one question - go with someone who hasn't undergone Gas Courses or ACS Exams, or hire someone who has undergone all relevant training and is fully qualified. The difference really is alarming and after all, would you want to be penalised with hefty fines and even risk imprisonment for undergoing work you're not legally allowed to do?

Becoming a Gas Safe Registered Engineer really does represent trust and quality for the public as well as Gas Engineers. If it's something you've been thinking about, it certainly offers safe lucrative benefits. For more information about how to begin, simply click here for all of our Gas Courses!
