The domestic heating industry is undergoing a huge change as we head toward net zero 2050, yet there is a long-term shortage of skilled heating installers.
Training as a gas engineer is a great starting point for a varied and successful career in this exciting sector – you’ll have lots of work installing, servicing and maintaining the 23 million gas boilers in homes across the UK and build a secure foundation of knowledge and experience for further training in new technologies.
By choosing to become a domestic gas installer you are choosing a trade and career that will always be in demand.
The DGHI new entrants course starts with the basic principles of gas heating and plumbing and pipework skills, leading to further areas such as heating design, gas safety and hot water systems.
As this is a Managed Learning Programme, all topics are broken down into easy-to-digest sections, with industry recognised qualifications and certificates of competence awarded on completion of each module.
This course consists of eight weeks in-centre training, supported by on-line training and assessment, followed by on-site work experience and ACS training and assessment.
Core training: Candidates will complete the DGHI New Entrants course and the Managed Learning Programme (MLP). Successful students will receive competence certificates for the different technical elements and an industry recognised MLP training certificate from LCL Awards once the on-site portfolio has been completed; necessary to access ACS gas training and assessment.
On-site work experience: Candidates will then be ready to start building an on-site portfolio. You can do your on-site portfolio and boiler installations with a Gas Safe Registered engineer of your choice or we can provide a portfolio building service. The silver, gold and platinum package includes this element in the price.
Boiler installations: Before starting your onsite portfolio you will need to undertake a Direct Observation of a boiler installation, service and repair within our centre, this is included within the cost of the programme. This takes place over 2 days. You will then need to complete and record within your portfolio, a further four boiler installations as required by the ACS scheme. You can do this with a Gas Safe Registered engineer of your choice. We will review your portfolio mid way through and make recommendations. If you are unable to complete all the tasks on site we may be able to carry the remaining tasks within our centre.
ACS assessment: Once the on-site portfolio and boiler installations have been completed and signed off you are ready to return to the centre to undertake refresher training and ACS gas assessment for CCN1 and CENWAT.
Come to one of our free introductory sessions in Northolt – you’ll be talked through the course and have a tour of the centre, as well as the chance to ask questions and meet the staff.
