Become a Gas Engineer

Here at ECTA we’re the training provider that can prepare you for an rewarding career as a Gas Engineer.

A career as a Domestic Gas engineer offers fantastic opportunities for those looking for a rewarding new career.

This is a fantastic opportunity if you’re looking for a practical career in an industry which is forecast to suffer massive skills shortages over the coming years. There are different types of roles available, such as servicing gas appliances, design and installation of heating systems, and repairing central heating boilers. Salaries for qualified engineers range from around £23k per annum up to around £40k for an experienced engineer. All gas training should meet the criteria laid down in the IGEM/IG/1 Edition 2 Standards of Training in Gas Work. ECTA provide MLP (Managed Learning Programme) gas training programmes approved by NICEIC which are written to the IGEM standard so you can have confidence that your training programme meets the required level of quality.  Take your first step by downloading our information packed brochure.

Our Managed Learning Programme has been designed to be flexible, so you can 'Become a Gas Engineer' in just 6 months or a year!

The Managed Learning Programme is a vocational approved training programme designed to be robust, structured, subject to quality management and accessible for audit purposes.

Established in line with the new legislation, which allows candidates new to the gas industry to undertake a period of “off the job” training – 7 weeks for the standard Domestic Gas Engineer route – followed by a period (20 weeks) of “on the job” training under the supervision of a Gas Safe Registered engineer.

Once you have successfully completed both parts of the MLP, you will be eligible to undertake ACS assessments, which are the qualifications required to get Gas Safe Registration. This is the shortest route now available for new entrants to the industry, and means you could be a qualified gas engineer in approximately 6 months.

New legislation which came into force on 1st October 2017 means that ALL gas training courses for new entrants now need to be approved, and timescales and content have been standardised throughout the industry. All routes into the gas industry require a period of ‘off the job’ training (like at our bespoke gas training centre) and ‘on the job’ training which must be carried out under the supervision of a Gas Safe registered engineer.
