Benefits of Boiler Fault Finding:

Boiler Fault Finding is a must-have addition to any gas engineers skill set if boilers are their bread and butter. Being able to identify faults and understand how to repair them quickly gives you the edge and enables you to capitalise on high industry call out fees that can make the winter period the most profitable with very little hours on-site.

This means

  • Great next step for Gas Engineers
  • Creates a new sector of revenue for Engineers
  • Hands-on fault finding and repair on wet and dry boilers.

Boiler Fault Finding Requirements & Qualifications:

Ours, as well as other Gas Courses, cover basic faults in boilers, but this course is designed to fill in the gaps and expand your knowledge in a hands-on setting to prepare you for whatever you may come across in a customer’s home.

To undertake this course you must currently be Gas Safe Registered and have a minimum of 6 months experience in the field. This course is great for counting towards your Continued Professional Development (CPD)

At the end you will have confidence in diagnosing and identifying faults on a range of boiler types and brands.

Did the heat pump installation course. Really good and informative. Free brews as well!
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!
Passed my ACS with Viva, great trainers put me at ease in a relaxed training atmosphere. Roy & Pete are down to earth, helpful and know there stuff. Lindsay was helpful with the paperwork/ portfolio side of the course, which also helped as paperwork isn't my forte.The company they use for placement are also good, made a few new friends and enjoyed the experience with Basi. Would recommend and I will be going back.
Amazing course with very knowledgeable trainers. Would 100% recommend viva training & I’ll be coming back for further training myself in the near future

Best course I have attended Unlike others which are showroom based don’t touch this or you left mark there.This was actually hands on course Different makes and models were in workshop both live and dead boilers also lots of sensor switches pumps,G valves etc. Pete was excellent made sure everyone understood what were they doing and what outcome or readings they were looking from each test carried out.pete put faults on live Boilers when we were away for break to simulate real world scenarios which was really good.Excellent would really recommend it.
I attended the course with small knowledge of breakdowns and limited use of a multi meter, by the end of the 3 days I was able to identify faults and prove failed components with relative ease.
