Worried about your Gas portfolio? Don't be!


If you are training with us on one of our Gas courses then you will know that you need to complete a Gas, work portfolio, as it is needed when looking to become a Gas Safe Registered Engineer. Part of the process for new entrants looking to access the gas industry is to work under the supervision of a Gas Safe registered Engineer to build a portfolio of competence. This is a requirement for all new entrants to the industry so that your competence in real-life situations can be verified. You may be worried about not finding a placmeent...No need if you cannot manage to find a placement on your own then with the help of our partners at Boiler Medic we can provide you with a placement! We encourage all new entrant gas trainees to find their own work placement as this will save you money, but if you struggling then for a fee we can take this responsibility off you.

Interested in taking one of our gas courses? Well we offer courses for both new-entrants and qualified plumbers as we know that this is a typical route for plumbers to take, the two trades are very similar in theory, plus the use of pipes and heating appliances.
