Logic4training’s Domestic Gas Heating Installer - Experienced Trades package is designed for operatives with at least 2 years’ experience in a related trade, who are looking to gain the relevant qualifications in order to join Gas Safe Register and work on gas.

Gas engineers install, service, maintain and repair gas appliances.

They may specialise in domestic or commercial, with many different appliances and property types included within each specialism.

Typical duties may include:

  • Installing or repairing appliances to deliver gas
  • Maintaining or replacing faulty systems
  • Cutting, bending & joining pipes and fittings
  • Providing cost estimates to customers, and talking through additional cover, insurance options & energy saving options
  • Carrying out estimates, checking for gas leaks & ensuring all repairs/installations are up to code
  • Ensuring all safety requirements are met accordingly

To become a fully qualified* gas engineer you must:

  • Undertake ACS training & Assessment
  • Complete an on-site portfolio of gas work
  • Obtain a CCN1 qualification
  • Register with Gas Safe Register

Whether a New Entrant or Experienced Trades’ person, at the end of your Domestic Gas Heating Installer programme you will need to complete ACS training and assessment; a pre-requisite of becoming Gas Safe Registered.

As part of this, trainees are required to build an on-site portfolio as well as 5 boiler installs, under the supervision of a Registered Gas Engineer  – we can help with this aspect too.

On successful completion of the ACS assessment you will be ready to apply to join the Gas Safe Register.

To start on the first step to becoming a Domestic Gas Heating Installer, call our customer service team on 0345 845 7222 who will be able to advise and book you on to the appropriate open day or introduction session which are Free of Charge.

*Core domestic gas safety qualifications with Boilers & Fires, additional appliances can be added later on. Commercial, Catering and LPG qualifications are also separate.

We run two different types of open day.

  1. For those with little to no experience the open day involves a tour of our centre and a presentation about the course. You will meet our friendly staff and have any questions you might have answered.
  2. For those with some experience in a relevant trade, the open day is more of an induction session. Logic4training’s staff will assess your experience and competencies so you choose the right path to becoming a heating engineer.

You do not have to book at this point; take the information away and decide in your own time whether becoming a Domestic Gas Heating Installer with Logic4training is right for you.

“Well organised and structured training, nothing seemed too much effort for Mark, Ray or Jayne – would recommend the APL route into gas to anyone considering it!”
