Course details

Having provided gas training and ACS assessment for quite some time and having worked closely with Gas Engineers, it has become apparent that individuals knowledge of boiler service, repair and maintenance is quite minimal. To combat this, we have devised this very comprehensive 5 day course:

Boiler Fault Finding:

  • Safe and correct use of a multimeter
  • Safe electrical testing
  • Identifying boiler components and their function including:
    • Pumps
    • Switches
    • Fans
    • Gas valves
    • Temperature sensors and stats
  • How to test these components
  • Outline common faults and remedial steps on:
    • Diverter valves
    • Expansion vessels
    • Domestic heat exchangers

Wiring & Heating Controls:

  • Introduction to different heating system controls, their function and how they work
  • How to wire up a range of heating systems
  • How to test correctly and identify faults
  • Learn about Smart controls

This 5 day course has been devised by Able Skills gas team. This course is a mixture of theory and practical, candidates will be working across a range of different boiler makes, old and new to ensure a broader understanding is achieved. All systems at Able Skills are fully operational, providing you with a realistic working environment. The heating controls aspect of this course will ensure an understanding of the various different types of wiring systems and diagnosis of heating control faults. Multimeter training will be a large and integral part of this course, showing you how to set the multimeter and use it correctly to identify faults on both heating system controls and boilers.

This particular course can potentially save you and your customers both time and money by enabling you to identify a potential repair to a boiler rather than an immediate replacement. Your knowledge of boiler systems will be greatly enhanced, allowing you to offer a wider range of services to your customers. Able Skills has been delivering very comprehensive gas training courses, both domestic and commercial since 2006. We have an excellent relationship with Bpec, our certificating body and the training that we have provided has also been recognised by Gas Safe as being of a standard that the industry requires. Please be advised that this course is only available to Gas Safe registered Engineers or candidates who have undertaken Able Skills Gas Managed Learning Programme.
