Gas Training UK Ltd can offer foundation gas courses for new engineers and adults retraining into the gas, oil and LPG industry. Your skills will develop under the guidance and expertise of our experienced trainers, techniques and facilities. Class sizes are usually between 4 and 6 candidates to give a good student to trainer ratio.
It's a great time go into gas engineering as there is a well documented shortage of skilled labour in the gas industry not only in the Yorkshire area but across the whole of the UK. This line of work can be an interesting, varied and potentially lucrative career which offers lifetime skills with the flexibility to work for an employer or to be self employed where you can choose the hours you work.
Our Gas Foundation Course training is normally run over 38 weeks. This allows time to gain experience and condense knowledge attained. Support and assistance is given throughout your training period. The structured programme provides the 'off-site' training that a candidate needs in order to qualify and undertake ACS gas assessment at Gas Training UK Ltd. The candidate can then progress to Gas Safe Registration.
In conjunction with the training programmes offered, we also give guidance on a Candidate's Portfolio, in which the candidate will record all "on the job" and "off the job" training. This evidence is vital to prove sufficient knowledge and experience to undertake the ACS assessments.
Upon successful completion of the Gas Foundation training programme and the candidate portfolio, the candidate will be issued a Gas Foundation certificate which will qualify him/her to undertake the ACS gas assessments at Gas Training UK Ltd.
This course is designed for people already working in the gas and plumbing industry who hold a nationally recognised qualification in plumbing or associated trade. A reduction in course duration can be applied by cross referencing qualifications already held and onsite experience gained within the previous three years.
Our courses are run throughout the year at our purpose built training centre in Sheffield, however places are limited.
