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) Qualification. This course covers all of the stages required in order to get to the point of registering with Gas Safe. This route will take you step by step through the various training that is essential for the industry.
Because you do not have experience in the trade we will teach you those required skills to get you to a competent standard. You must however be working with a Gas Engineer to ensure the knowledge is gained to the requirements for our industry. We anticipate that although your training is in 36 Weeks the overall timely completion will be more like a 12 months due to your lack of industry experience and on-site portfolio build.
EAS will not be responsible for obtaining you a work placement. This is for you to sort before registering on the programme with EAS. We also take no responsibility if you fail to complete the course if the reasons being are out of EAS's control.
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. Included is the ACS core and one element. CentWat for instance.
