Gas Engineer Course

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 (9am -4pm) & £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.

We also offer a weekend course which is every other weekend on a Saturday and Sunday priced at an extra £500 to the above course which starts at 9am and finishes at around 4pm.

*** NEW***

We now offer due to increased demand an evening Gas course running on a Monday & Tuesday every week priced the same as the weekend course.

The training starts at 5pm and finishes at 9pm.
