Catergory 3 - New Entrants to Gas route - Managed Learning Programme
This route is ideal New Entrants looking to enter the gas industry and is for those whom do not have a Plumbing (or a related trade). This course covers all of the stages required in order to get to the point of registering with Gas Safe. You will develope the skills that are required for you to eventually be in a position to register with Gas Safe after your ACS assessments. This route will take you step by step through the various training that is essential for the industry. Because you do not have experince in the trade we will teach you the required skills to get you to a competent standard. You must also be working with a Gas Engineer at all times to ensure your knowledge is gained to the requirements for our industry. We anticipate that although your training is in 8 Week blocks the overall timely completion will be more like a 12 months due to your lack of industry knowledge.

Upon successful completion of this course (and the gathering of on the job evidence via the portfolio placement with a Gas Safe registered Engineer), you will be issued with a Gas Foundation Certificate which will then allow you to undertake ACS assessments.
