Gas (Full/Part Time)

Gold Provider

Comprehensive training providing everything you need for a successful career in Gas

Our managed learning programme and guaranteed work placement ensure you can get straight to work.

There is a very simple way to help people decide who to train with in the gas industry, so please heed this warning. Any gas training company not offering a written guarantee of a work-placement, in your local area, with an immediate start, will not help you find one. Building a portfolio is a necessary requirement of the process (you can’t even sit the final assessments without one), so please avoid any company not giving you a written guarantee of a work placement allowing you to build one.
