Course Overview

If you want to learn about gas work and get started on the path to becoming a professional gas engineer, the ‘essential gas’ course from Access Training Academies will suit you perfectly. This training course covers the basics of gas engineering, making it ideal for those with no prior experience of gas work.

Over the years, we have delivered numerous gas engineering courses at every level, but we have often seen candidates struggle to achieve the more advanced qualifications because they don’t have the basic knowledge required to fully comprehend what they are being taught. This spurred us on to create our own essential gas course; the aim of this programme is to provide the correct level of gas engineer training for absolute beginners that will help them to become professional gas engineers.

If you choose to enrol on this course, you will learn how to install, service and maintain appliances including the following:
  • Central heating boilers
  • Cookers
  • Gas fires
  • Water Heaters

Who is this course for?

As mentioned above, our essential gas course was developed with complete novices in mind, so this programme really is suitable for anyone. It is mainly geared towards absolute beginners with no prior gas experience whatsoever, but we also welcome more experienced learners who need to refresh the skills and expertise they already possess


Upon completion of our gas essentials course, you will receive a Certificate of Competence to confirm that you attended and completed the course successfully. This certificate, together with a portfolio of work (to be completed separately), will allow you to become a professional gas engineer; you will also be able to progress onto more advanced training courses that will further expand your skillset.
