Become a Gas Engineer: Training Courses for South East England & South WalesWith the current skill shortage in the UK combined with a lack of available apprenticeship placements there is a very real shortage of qualified gas engineers. By becoming a fully-qualified gas engineer on one of the Plumbing Academy’s range of gas courses you will be able to join a challenging, exciting and rewarding profession with a real sense of job security. From our state-of the-art training facilities, which are located throughout Southern England, South Wales, and the South West, you’ll be able to achieve the industry-recognised qualifications that you need.
By gaining this skill for life, you’ll be able to set up your own business once you’ve completed one of our gas courses and enjoy a high pay rate as well as the choice to work the hours you want to work.

Gas Courses for Those Wanting to Start a CareerYour first step along the path is our Gas Engineer Course. Through our hands-on learning approach that we employ on all our gas courses, you’ll gain the knowledge you need to enter the gas industry and be guided by experienced teaching staff whose wealth of knowledge will be available to you even after completion. From here you will assemble a portfolio of your work to become eligible to be assessed for CNN1 certification, which we will organise as part of these gas courses. Once this has been achieved you will be qualified as a CAT 1 individual and be able to register as Gas Safe Register.

These will expand your knowledge and allow you to be able to undertake a larger variety of jobs as a professional. For full details on what’s available to you, see the full list of gas courses.
