Gas engineers install, service, maintain and repair gas appliances in domestic and/or commercial properties.
As we move away from fossil fuels, gas engineers will continue to maintain exisiting boilers. 2019 was a record year for gas boiler installations, with 1.7million fitted. It is likely that these new boilers will last for around 20 years. Currently, there are around 26 million gas boilers in the UK.
Ultimately, gas is just the fuel; a gas installer should view themselves as a ‘heating engineer’. As a trained gas engineer you will have the right qualifications and experience to upskill into increasingly popular renewable technologies, like heat pumps. These upskill courses take around five days, depending on experience.
A gas engineer who can also install heat pumps and other renewables, such as solar thermal, will be in demand now and in the future.
Typical duties may include:
- Installing or repairing appliances to deliver gas
- Repairing gas appliances and heating systems.
- 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* registered gas engineer you must:
- Complete an on-site portfolio of gas work.
- Undertake ACS training and assessment, which will result in a CCN1 qualification (core gas safety), plus the specific appliances you plan to work on – boilers, cookers and fires, for example.
- Register with Gas Safe
Whether a new entrant or trades person with some relevant experience, our Domestic Gas Heating Installer (DGHI) programme, covers all of the above, plus other essential qualifications, such as WRAS water regulations and health & safety courses.
At the end of your DGHI programme you will complete ACS training and assessment; a pre-requisite of becoming Gas Safe Registered.
As part of the programme, trainees are required to build an on-site portfolio as well as five 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 Gas Engineer, call our customer service team on 0208 845 7222 who will be able to advise and book you a slot on to the appropriate introductory 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.
Commercial, catering and LPG qualifications are also separate. Browse our full range of gas training courses here.
We run two different types of introductory session at our training centres.
- For those with little to no experience the session involves a tour of one of our centre and a presentation about the course. You will meet our friendly staff and have any questions you might have answered.
- For those with some experience in a relevant trade, there is more of an induction session. Logic4training’s staff will assess your experience and competencies so you choose the right path to becoming a gas safe engineer.
Although this is often described as an “open day” by booking a slot you are taking up a limited space in our centre and we would ask that you please make every effort to attend the session.
