What You’ll Learn

You will learn the skills required to become a Plumber and a qualified Gas Engineer. If you are looking to learn the two trades that most people think go hand in hand then this package of learning is ideal.

The Plumbing aspects

The level 2 plumbing qualification is the perfect start for anyone looking to access the plumbing industry and is essential for those who want to progress further. Various plumbing tasks are learned, ranging from Electrical principles and processes, Common plumbing processes, Cold water systems, Domestic hot water systems, Sanitation, Central heating systems and Drainage systems

The Gas aspects

The systems and learning we have in place to get you to becoming Gas Safe registered are second to none and are designed to have you industry ready.

You will gain a great insight into the Gas industry as well as achieving an understanding of the guidelines and regulations which currently govern the ACS scheme. The gas training will cover a variety of topics including gas appliance functions, the basic principles of flues and combustion, legislation, tightness testing, pipework requirements, gas safety controls, flueing, ventilation and unsafe situations.

How You’ll Learn

This package of Plumbing and Gas training is taught and achieved in a variety of ways. The Plumbing and initial Gas course are a mixture of practical and classroom based tuition and progress is monitored by way of multiple choice exams and practical assessments. The next stage of the package is a placement whereby you will be working under supervision of a Gas Safe registered Engineer in order to complete a portfolio of competence. The final stage of the process is Gas assessment and again, this is a mixture of practical tasks and multiple choice exams. To help your success on the plumbing course, we will provide you with a level 2 Plumbing reference book and a free tool-kit. To assist you throughout the gas process, we will provide with a comprehensive training manual and also a gas portfolio.

Courses Open To You After

Following on from this package, you may wish to consider upgrading to a level 3 Plumbing qualification (you will not need to repeat the gas aspect of the qualification so you will only need to do 6 weeks). If you do not want to achieve level 3 but require some additional plumbing and gas related qualifications, you could consider courses like Water Regulations, Energy Efficiency or Unvented Hot Water Systems. If you are looking to achieve an NVQ in Plumbing, this is also available at Able Skills.

Additional Info

Both the level 2 Plumbing and the Gas training aspects of this package are available Full Time, Part Time at Weekends (on a 2 weekend on and 2 weekend off basis) and the Plumbing aspect is also available as a Flexible Training option whereby you can attend in pre-designated separate weekly blocks over a longer period of time and also as a Home Study option. Following on from the training, we will then place you with one of our Gas Engineers to undertake the mandatory work based Gas competence; you will be working in real life situations undertaking various gas tasks like installations, services and safety checks. Once this is complete, you will return to Able Skills to undertake ACS – Formal Gas assessments, which once complete, will earn you the right to register with Gas Safe.
