Gas Engineer Courses for Beginners
Posted by: Richard Firth on: 8 February 2022
VIVA Training runs a Managed Learning Programme (MLP) for beginners to the gas industry.
This gas engineer course for beginners usually takes around 15 weeks, with your time split between the Viva Training Centre and on-site placement.
The new entrants gas training course combines classroom and practical learning, along with the completion of a portfolio on live installations. The length of time it takes to complete the programme very much depends on previous experience and your ability to stick to the training plan. We will do everything we can to make sure that you have all of the necessary support and guidance needed to gain the qualifications.
Training is broken down into manageable chunks and delivered by ex-British Gas Engineers, covering the following areas:
We cover everything you need to work safely on domestic gas within homes and small businesses, culminating in the ACS assessment; a legal requirement of becoming Gas Safe Registered.
Split into modules, each section of the course covers all the basics along with greater in-depth training. Our experienced tutors (ex-British Gas installers) will support you throughout the programme, which includes theory and practical training, in the classroom and on live installations.
We emphasise the focus on gas boiler installation because this is the most lucrative area within the domestic gas industry.
