With so many different courses and training providers and a variety of qualifications available, it can be challenging to understand precisely how to become a gas engineer. Luckily, here at Options Skills, we’ve made it simple. We’ve developed a 3-step ACS gas training course to take you from being a new entrant to a fully qualified gas safe engineer.

Before you join us, our experienced advisors will be able to go through the whole course with you, ensuring you know exactly what to expect. Once you begin your gas course, you will undertake centre-led training, on-site work alongside an experienced gas engineer and assessments. We aim to ensure you experience every aspect of gas engineer training and are competent in the trade.

There has never been a better time to train with such a demand for skilled workers throughout the UK. For more information about becoming a gas engineer, take a look at our course pages, fill in our online contact form or call us today.

Up to 31st December 2020, Regulated qualifications and UKAS Accredited certificates of competence issued in the UK were widely recognised by other EU member states. However, since the UK’s withdrawal from the EU, individual member states that previously recognised a UK qualification may now no longer do so. Learners undertaking qualifications on the basis that it is recognised by an EU member state should, in the first instance, make enquiries with the relevant bodies in that Country to confirm its recognition status.
