As of 1st October 2017, new regulations have come in which have changed the structure and the duration of gas training courses for new entrants. ECTA are running the new Managed Learning Programme, which is a modular gas training course, and can be tailored to suit the individual (or Company) requirements. The duration of the course is dependent on the route the candidate wishes to take, for example, for a new entrant wishing to install, maintain and service Domestic Central Heating Boilers, Water Heaters, Cookers and Fires would be expected to do 7 weeks practical and theory training in centre, followed by a period of approximately 20 weeks supervised work practice with a Gas Safe registered engineer.
Why train to be a Gas Engineer?
There are loads of opportunities for qualified gas engineers, from installing central heating boilers, to working on commercial gas appliances. According to Gas Safe Register, from figures published in their Decade Review of the industry, half of all gas engineers are 55 and above. This means that there are going to be a lot of retirements in the industry over the next few years, leaving a massive skills shortage.
