Fully qualified, highly employable

Our managed learning programme and guaranteed work placement ensures 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 a written guarantee of a work-placement.

The reason we have the reputation of being the best gas training centre in the UK, is because we give our students what they need to work competently with gas, not what is easiest and quickest for us to deliver.
