Domestic Gas Engineer Course

The best route to becoming a successful, qualified gas engineer is to take the Plumbing Academy’s primary gas course, known as the Domestic Gas Engineer Course.

Upon completing our domestic gas course, you will proceed to joining the Gas Safe Register – a must for all gas engineers. But before you can take any ACS (Accredited Certification Scheme) assessments, you’ll need to build a portfolio of gas work under the supervision of a Gas Safe engineer. This is something we will provide through our guaranteed work placement programme. This professional placement spent with a qualified Gas Safe Registered engineer allows you to gather all the evidence required to complete your training portfolio and pass your assessments.

Rest assured that our fully-qualified gas lecturers will provide you with all the technical knowledge and practical skills you need to become a competent gas engineer and work safely with a wide range of domestic gas appliances. Please contact us or call 0800 345 7492 for more information on our domestic gas engineer course.

Domestic Gas Course Details

There are 3 key elements to the domestic gas course: initial gas training, creating a portfolio of supervised work, and finally the completion of the ACS exams.

Training will take place in our purpose-built gas training centre, where you’ll be taught by experienced professionals with a long history in the gas industry.

We cover the following areas through a mixture of theory lessons and hands-on workshops:
  • Testing and purging of domestic gas installations
  • Combustion
  • Flues
  • Ventilation Controls for gas appliances
  • Gas pipe work
  • Gas industry legislation
  • Installation of domestic gas appliances
  • Commissioning of domestic gas appliances
  • Servicing of domestic gas appliances
  • Maintenance of domestic gas appliances
  • Unsafe situations
Whilst working through this course, you will undertake a blend of theory learning, hands-on training and practical assessments. We maintain an exceptionally high pass rate on this gas course through close tutelage and small class sizes. Our hands-on approach to learning means that you’ll be thoroughly prepared for any scenario once you have qualified and are enjoying life as a gas engineer.

Who Should Apply?

If you hold no plumbing, gas or related qualifications then this gas course is ideal for your requirements.

Those with previous experience will also be perfectly suited to the course’s content, which comprises the following:
  • Intensive gas foundation course covering all principles and applications
  • A portfolio produced under the supervision of a Gas Safe engineer
  • CCN1 & appliance full assessments
In order to qualify, you will need to complete a portfolio of evidence that you will obtain during your guaranteed work placement. A Gas Safe Registered Engineer will supervise you and work alongside you on a regular basis in order to help you build up and complete your portfolio. Only upon completion of the portfolio of evidence will you be in a position to take the ACS exams and assessments.

Gas Safe Registration

Upon successful completion of the gas course ACS CCN1 assessments, the student will be able to register with Gas Safe, who are employed by the UK government to regulate gas safety. Registering with Gas Safe means that you have become a qualified gas engineer and may now legally work on domestic gas appliances.
