Whether you've been interested in becoming an Gas Engineer from an early age or fancy a career switch, making the transition can be a daunting process. However, with the correct facts we might be able to put your mind at ease as we discuss the benefits of delving into the trade and why becoming a Gas Engineer is a prosperous career.

First things first, if you are seriously considering working within Gas, you must ensure you select the right Training Centre who can provide you with adequate Gas Training Courses who prepare you for the real world. Before we give you a breakdown of the Gas Training Courses you might need, have a read of some benefits working as a Gas Engineer can bring.



Qualified Gas Engineers are known for their consistent, steady and generous salaries. The fact it remains one of the most important trades tells us the demand for such work won't be declining anytime soon. Now with demand, comes high returns and once you've gained some industry experience, you're looking at around £30,000 initially. However, the more variety of work carried out and further experience under your belt could see you earning somewhere in the region of £50,000 but this is only the beginning for those that seek to become self employed and successfully run your own firm. If that's the case, then the income is in your hands!

Different work daily


None of us like to do the same thing day in day out, so why settle for a career doing so. Wouldn't you rather pay bills while doing something you enjoy as apposed to falling into the trap of boring work? Arguably the best point of being a Gas Engineer falls under this second benefit everyday offering different work. Perhaps a domestic property Monday, but a huge commercial project Tuesday? Sound good? You may want to undergo further Gas Training Courses to further enhance your skill-set.

Time Flexibility


Our previous point eases into our third point of time flexibility. You might be reading this from your office chair and go on your break at exactly the same time everyday. Working on different projects everyday means a different time schedule too. You'll have all types of appointments and if you're self employed, well you'll be adding even more variety to your day!
