Natural Gas

Take advantage of a lucrative and rewarding industry

Gas Engineer Training Courses

Worcester Bosch Training

The Natural Gas Sector is massive in the UK, and has huge scope in terms of skills you can learn, devices you can work on, and home improvements you can bring to your customers lives. From being able to operate on gas appliances, service boilers and identify faults, and design hot water heating systems, the Natural Gas Sector has one of the largest scopes of all.

Gas is the UK’s fuel of choice – there are 23.2 million gas customers and over two million domestic gas boilers installed every year, not to mention new fires and cookers. The benefit of starting or progressing your career in the Natural Gas Industry is that it’s a relatively easy start, and there are loads of opportunities to expand and grow within it after you qualify.

Natural Gas in the Gas & Heating Sector refers to the gas delivered via the UK Gas Network to homes and is a mix of primarily Methane and Hydrogen. This is most likely the gas your home appliances like boilers and cookers run off.

Gas Engineer, Gas Auditing, Boiler Technician, Kitchen Installers, Heating specialists, repair and servicers, emergency call out work, Office work.

The most common around today are boilers, cookers, and fires.

To start a career in Natural Gas you need a course like our New Entrants Gas Managed Learning Programme to develop your skills from the ground up and get you Gas Safe. You can start this course with no prior qualifications.

Methane, ethane, butane, and propane. The main one used in domestic heating is Methane.

Gas is the cleanest-burning hydrocarbon when compared to coal, producing around half the carbon dioxide (CO2) and a fraction of the air pollutants, however, it is not as clean as other energy sources like electricity.

Brilliant course. Very informative. Excellent tutor.Highly recommended
Just recently completed a fault finding course with the ever knowledgeable Roy Fugler.I honestly cannot rate this training centre and Roy highly enough!I completed my ACS training with them over two years ago and they were my number one choice when I decided to expand my knowledge around the inner workings of a boiler and how to diagnose the issues that often arise.I will have to re-sit my ACS again in a few years and there’s only one place I’ll be going. It’s VIVA all the way!
