Gas MLP

Gas Managed Learning Programme

The Gas managed learning programme is a reasonably new initiative set-up to run from the 1st October 2017 and has stopped unscrupulous companies making people a Gas engineer by post. Anyone now wanting to become a Gas engineer can ONLY do their training through an approved training provider such as ourselves.

Our price for this course is £3500 for 5 weeks training & £500 for the ACS assessment after 6 months. We also offer help with portfolio building and placing you with an engineer for a fee of £1000, alternatively you may of course find your own for free. Our own engineers are experienced in providing you with the help you need. Should you wish to find your own then we will gladly provide you with all the data you need and provide you with FULL support working alongside your own mentor.

Becoming a Gas engineer if your new to the industry

Course Delivery

From October 2017 as mentioned previously, to become a Gas engineer you have to complete a training programme with a recognised training provider authorised by the certification body.

Becoming a Gas engineer involves attending the training centre for 5 weeks Monday to Friday 9-4 where you will complete a training programme which involves a lot of practical skills covering all aspects of work that a Gas engineer would do in his/her day to day job.

The advantage you have with us is our trainer was a former Gas inspector so knows exactly what you need to know to be very good at your job.

During the training we will teach you about pipework and soldering skills and how to bend those pipes over other pipes including some tricky bends.
You will understand how the inside of a boiler works with a full bench top hands on examination of all parts along with  demonstration on testing them using a multi-meter where applicable.

You will cover Gas regulations, Flues, Unsafe situations, Gas controls, Pipe sizing, Purging & Installation volumes, different meters and acceptable drops, fault finding, working safely electrically training all our new engineers on safe isolation as required from July 2020, conventional heating systems, pre-cast flue blocks, brick chimneys, lined chimneys, room stat wiring, programmer wiring to just name a few!

The course is delivered with a mixture of delivery stimulus utilising white board, projector, hands on training in bays, group discussions, part identification, various books and frequent testing to monitor your progress giving you constant feedback during your time with us.
The trainer will also create a whatsapp group for sharing any issues you encounter on site where he will provide technical support after your training if required.

So you do 5 weeks with us in the training centre, then you will go with a Gas engineer on placement either chosen by us (for a fee) or selected by yourself. You will stay with this mentor until he is comfortable you are competent at various tasks over a period of around 4 months. These task include as a minimum 5 boiler installations, 5 boiler services, 5 tightness tests & 5 different pipework scenarios across the range of jobs.

Please note that the above details are NOT 5 jobs and then your finished but a minimum number of jobs that you’ve completed ON YOUR OWN unaided by the mentor.
This means you may have completed many more documented jobs in your portfolio as evidence.

You will frequently attend the training centre afterwards having your portfolio reviewed with feedback given, then eventually signed off – meaning you can then book with us for your initial ACS assessment.

Following this you may then register with Gas safe and obtain your Gas license and card within 2 weeks.
